Outstanding Wedding Reception Table Decorations
Once your guests reach the reception area, they look for their place cards to determine where to sit. Before the wedding, you create a seating chart so you can determine who will be at each table. The tables are numbered so guests can easily reference which table they are sitting at. Use decorative items on each table so guests can readily find the table number.
At each place setting, put a themed favor with the guest's name. There are literally hundreds of different place cards to choose from. If you have a formal wedding, use embossed roses on ivory place cards. You can have western themed items at a country wedding. For an added touch of elegance at your wedding reception tables, display them in beautiful place card holders. This makes the place cards easier to find and becomes a lasting keepsake for your guests.
Place card holders also make eye-catching wedding reception table decorations to make the theme of your special day. Even if you use plain place cards, decorative place card holders make them fancy. Use a vase place card holder filled with a silk blossom your guests can take home to remember your wedding. At a beach or waterfront wedding, silver plated shell shaped place card holders bring the sea to your table. An Asian brocade snap purse is an ideal place card holder at Oriental themed weddings. At a garden wedding, use a tulip in a silver pot as a place card marker.
