Animal-shaped card holders
These animal figurines are adorable place card holders and even better favors. Perfect for adults and children alike, these elephants are sure to help your guests remember your wedding for years to come.
Either of these rustic wood frames or silver beaded frames will match any wedding theme and décor. Set a disposable camera or polaroid camera on each table, too. Guests will love taking their own pictures to print and put in their new picture frames.
Champagne flutes have three uses at any wedding reception: escort card, toasting glass, and favor! Add a tag or even a drink stirrer so guests can easily find their seats. Then, guests can use these glasses for the champagne toasts. Finally, guests get to take them home at the end of the night, and they will remember your wedding each and every time they use their glass.
Just like the champagne flutes, these shot glasses have three uses for your wedding guests. Add a mini liquor bottle and a tag with the guest’s name and table number. If you’d prefer they save the liquor for at home, make sure to note that on the seat tag.
Burlap gift bags
Tie one of these lovely burlap gift bags to the back of every chair with a personalized gift tag. Fill with snacks, a candle, playing cards, bottle opener, or any combination of these. These bags can also be tied around the stem of a champagne glass. You can set the glasses, bags, and tags on a table near the entrance, so guests can pick them up as they arrive in order to find their seats, or leave them on tables with the tag clearly displaying a name.
Paper gift bags
“Love is sweet so take a treat” is a classic quote that goes along with edible wedding favors. Switch things up a bit by personalizing these paper bags with “take a treat and find your seat!” Include goodies for guests to take home and things they may need during the reception. For an outdoor wedding, sunglasses or a hand fan. Or, for winter weddings, toss in a pair of gloves. If you can’t think of anything they might need, include a shot glass! Stick a label on the outside with the guest’s name and table number.
A very popular classic favor is a plant or seed. These glass globes can easily be turned into an open terrarium or can hold an air plant beautifully. You can even order a few extras to hold candles for your centerpieces. They have loops at the top so you can hang them, but these loops also offer the perfect place to tie on a tag or ribbon with the guest’s name.
We tend to love anything that’s a mini version of something else, and these chalkboards are no exception. Not to mention they make cute place cards! Because you’re writing on them in chalk, you’ll need to be a bit more careful with how you distribute them, so these might work better if you leave them on the tables with just the guests’ names written on them. Decorate a few extras and leave them on the tables for games and activities. For example, paint a tic-tac-toe board on some and write “Kiss!” on others (so whenever a guest holds up their sign, the bride and groom have to kiss). If you’re having a DJ or a band, write “Please play ______________” on a few so guests can write down their song requests. This is a fantastic option because some guests – especially kids – sometimes get nervous going to ask for a song, or if the music is loud, the guests or performer may not be able to hear the song. Writing down the request ensure the song will get played.
What better way to be directed to your seat than a personalized lollipop? Although they’re perfect for spring weddings, they will definitely put a smile on guests’ faces any time of year. The place card can be added as either a sticker label or as a tag tied around the stick.
