Place cards… Arrrrrrrrrgh! *Bangs head on table*
Things are hotting up with the wedding, well when I say heating up, it’s just my temperature rising from the stress of it all! I mean, seriously I have done nothing. I am useless. I will confess I enjoy the planning on the blog but when it comes down to putting things on paper I crumble. My real problem is that I love everything about weddings; the dresses, the flowers, the shoes, the jewellery… I am in a wedding-like dream most of the time and I get to spend my days photographing weddings, editing weddings, talking about weddings with couples and you would think that would put me off but NO! I am, I think, a little addicted to be quite honest! I wonder if there’s a help group I can attend…
“My name is Dominique and I am a wedding addict”.
Well I jest a little of course although I think Matt might disagree, I have thrown him head first into my wonderful world of weddings and he has to run to keep up most of the time. ;)
Now. Place cards, as already explained we are a teeny tiny, weeny,ickle bit behind on our wedding plans…
READ: I STILL have NOT sent out the invitations!
Sigh… maybe people are mind readers! Anyway, to continue on this journey of discussing the guests but never actually letting them know they are invited… place cards. All the guests need them (when I finally figure out who is going!!!) and I would like them to be a bit different; fun, quirky and something that maybe would fit in with the yet to be decided theme. So, before I sink into the realms of despair of never, ever sending out the invitations… let’s begin.
OMG. These are so cool! Remember that game you played at school? You. Are. Going. To Marry….
What a blast from the past!
This is such a delicate way of presenting the place cards, would look fabulous in photographs too.
Imagine all the tables having the butterflies resting on the glasses, so dramatic.
A cute and very cheap way of displaying your name tags and a sweet little favour too!
Wrap the sweets in tissue if you don’t like the brand name.
An eco-friendly way of displaying your wedding guests names on slices of wood!
Visually very interesting and perfect for a rustic themed wedding.
Another utterly simple and eco friendly idea. Hardly any money spent and minimal effort involved but absolutely perfect for a winter wedding.
I love the retro name tags too.
This is a really unusual idea, it may need explaining though as it may not be that clear from the picture!
Essentially, all the guests were given their own jar and it was to fill with drink as they pleased.
But the genius is that they were asked to write their name on each glass so that everyone could see you who were even when you left your table.
A real ice breaker!
Perfect for a beach wedding or a rustic wedding in the mountains.
Personalised pebbles, so kooky and a lovely keepsake for the guests.
I love this ornament reindeer, would look lovely with a table full of them.. particularly if they each differed slightly.
The ribbon and tag is such a great way of showing the name tag and it would be perfect for a Christmas wedding.
I think I’m a little obsessed with fruit.. a week doesn’t seem to go by without me bringing out the fruit and vegetables!
But I really think this works! An apricot name tag.. OH YES.
Hmmm… I may live to regret this. Heinz tomato ketchup wedding place cards.
A favour and a name tag in one!
Now, one of the first things you should know about my fiancé he ADORES TEA & KETCHUP.
I’m not joking cup of tea for breakfast, mid-breakfast, lunch, elevenses, dinner and oh yeah tea.
If he could he would have ketchup with every meal too, even when I patiently explain it is mainly sugar, it goes in one ear and out the other.
So I think it might be his dream if there are pots of tea as extra favours on the table and I really don’t think he will want to leave!
So that’s it for today, hope you enjoyed my crazy name tags! Now if you excuse me, I have got to go and explain to my gormless groom AGAIN why we can’t have the wedding reception at ….
I despair, I really do.
