It’s all in the detail when it comes to weddings!

Every wedding couple wants everything to be perfect even down to the smallest of detail to make sure everything ties in together! Place name cards for example. I have put together a few ideas to provide some inspiration for your day!

A coloured motif can produce a unique personal look!

For a rustic style try a simple font like “American typewriter” on a tinted card or play on a vintage look by styling them into old fashioned tickets or luggage tags.

Classic never goes out of fashion, with a crisp white background and elegant fonts you can’t go wrong and these are perfect examples.  Take a look at these cute little baubles from www.coxandcox.co.uk.  They’re perfect for a winter wedding!

Fruit adds that hint of colour to the table and they are a great wedding favor, so why not tie both together and add your name card to the fruit as well like these photos below.

To find something original you may think you have to trawl the shops and internet, but it could be as easy as looking in your garden! Here are just a few examples.

The following product is great fun so if you’re a bit of a baker, and have some time to spare, search out one of these cookie stamps from www.williams-sonoma.com and create not only your place name but also your favor with changeable letters!

For that extra touch you might like to try something unique as your place card holder.  If you’re a wine buff, you could use champagne corks.
