Your wedding day is a special occasion that celebrates the love you and your mate have for each other. For this reason, you'll want everything to be just right, from the vows said at the wedding ceremony down to the food served at the reception. If you're planning a wedding and are in need of ideas on how to display your reception place cards, there are several routes you can take.

Photo Frames

Have the names of your guests printed on a paper of your choice and put each name inside a small photo frame. Arrange the frames on each reception table in the place you want each person to sit.

Clothes Pins

Print your guests' names and table number on small fun-shaped cards. Small paper in the shape of hearts, champagne glasses or a wedding dress are ideal. Use a clothes pin to hang them on a clothes line at the entrance to the reception. Use elegant gold or silver clothes pins if you want something more sophisticated than wooden ones.

Wedding Favors

Attach name tags with your guests' names and table number on them to your wedding favours with a ribbon. Set the favours on a decorated table and have guests grab their place settings and favours at the same time.

Illuminated Candle Votive

Print the names of your guests on a small cuplike candle votive. You can have them printed professionally or print them yourself onto self-adhesive, clear label printing paper. Place each votive at the table where you want your guests to sit. Illuminate them with tea light candles.

Wedding Wreath

Obtain a large tree-branch wreath. If it's not the colour you want, spray paint your desired colour. Print the names and table place of your guests onto leaf-shaped cards and attach them to the wreath. Hang the wreath up at your reception so guests can grab their place cards.
