A Little Romance

It's simple to create a little romance with these lovely, little escort cards. All you need are some printable tags, square labels and brown paper sleeves. Easily personalize the tags with a beautiful monogram or other design and add each table number. Print each guest's name on the square labels and stick them to the sleeves. Add a pretty piece of complementary ribbon for a elegant final touch.

By the Seashore

Beach weddings can be a fun way to get creative with your place cards, while adding some extra color and decor to your tables. For a whimsical beach chair place card, print a business card with fun colors and horizontal stripes. After printing, slightly bend the card to resemble a lounge chair and then place the finished cards in tray full of sand and stick a cocktail umbrella through each card and plant in the sand. If you want something a little more elegant, printable business cards can make lovely seaside place cards when tied to a starfish or stuck in a small seashell.

Regional Favorites

Want to treat your guests to local favorite fare? Let your place cards double as your wedding favors by personalizing a small bottle of wine, olive oil or syrup with printable label and hanging tag. Or use wine corks from a local winery to hold your place cards by cutting a small notch in the top to hold the card.

A Little Bit Rustic

For the casual outdoor wedding, these delightful fruit and cheese baskets make a perfect place card and appetizer all in one. Fill the baskets with some of your favorite goodies and print out hanging tags with each name and table number. Add some twine for a charming finishing touch.

A More Personal Touch

For a smaller more intimate wedding, gather digital images of your guests and print them on their place cards. Get humorous photos or pictures of when they were young to get fun conversations started at every table. Want to go a step further? Try cartoon characters. Having a movie themed wedding? Use vintage photos of classic movie stars that resemble your guests. This could take a little more work, but definitely a crowd pleaser.

For the Holidays

Create festive place cards with a little holiday cheer. Tie a hanging manila tag a sprig of pine or holly, or insert personalized business cards into mini pine cones. Holiday ornaments can also make wonderful holders, as the ring for the hooks holds a business card perfectly in place.
