Unique Wedding Place Card Ideas

After the ceremony, the first thing your guests will see before entering your reception is your place card table.  This is the first glimpse in to the theme or overall feeling of your reception.  You want this to be a reflection in to the type of event they are about to enter.

Themed weddings are obviously easier to think of place card ideas than non-themed weddings.  For example, if you are having a beach themed wedding a great idea is to display place cards by giving guests a message in a bottle with their table number inside.

Or for a Fall wedding a simple idea is to use leaves to display the names and table numbers of your guests.

A non-themed wedding can be a little harder to come up with an idea for your place cards. To create a unique place card table think about your  hobbies, interests, favorite things and start brainstorming ideas that would match your wedding.

For a wedding couple that enjoys collecting bottle caps or has a favorite drink to share with their guests try incorporating that in to the place cards.

Do you and your fiance eat ketchup with everything?  How cute are these personalized Heinz ketchup bottle labels? Just tie a place card to each bottle for a cute and super fun place card!

There are a bunch of ideas that are fun and interactive for your guests.  Take a look at these paper mustaches.  Great to double as a prop for a wedding photo booth!

I love place cards that can double as decor.  Bud vases with flowers can be used as place cards and placed on the tables as decor.  When the wedding is over the guests can take the vase and the flowers home!

Wedding Cake Pops..Yum!!

If you haven’t tried a cake pop you are really missing out!! Cake pops are cake and frosting mixed together and hand dipped in chocolate to make one of the yummiest bite size desserts ever! Brides are using cake pops in many different ways and one of the most common ways is to use them as wedding favors.

Guests love anything edible and cake pops are a perfect way to say thank you.  Cake pops can even be a DIY project.  Just know that although they are easy to make, they can be time consuming  (especially the week of your wedding!)

I also love the idea of using cake pops as your guests “escort card”.  Just tie a cute tag to the cake pop with the guests name and table number!

Many brides are having dessert tables in addition to their wedding cake.  If you have a dessert table you can save money by purchasing a smaller wedding cake. Using candles and cake pops to surround the wedding cake fills up the table and makes a great display.  Look how beautiful it looks below!

If you love cake pops and want a non-traditional wedding cake then a cake pop wedding cake might be perfect for you!

However you decide to use cake pops I promise your guests will love them and they will be a huge hit at any wedding!

Are you using cake pops at your wedding?  Please let us know what you think!! Love it or hate it??
