Show guests to their seats in style with these wedding place card ideas. Place cards not only let your guests know where to sit, they help to decorate your tables and continue your wedding theme too.


Here’s a few favourite ideas, all of which would be suitable for a destination wedding – easy to source at your destination, or light enough to pack and take with you.


Fruit flavoured 

Bright and bold place settings can be a fruitful addition to a table.

Destination themed 

You must have a little map theme in there somewhere! Map print luggage tags or colourful flags of your favourite countries around the globe would make great name place settings for a destination wedding.

My husband and I were in Barcelona recently on a lovely, sunshine mini-break. One evening, as we meandered through the cobbled, gothic streets of the city in search of a restaurant (and our next jug of sangria!), we spotted a tiny place up ahead. Its exterior was adorned in fairy lights and was like a romantic, twinkling beacon down through the dark alleyways.



I said to my husband that fairy lights are such a simple addition but they’re always a sure-fire way to attract people! The restaurant looked beautiful and quaint wrapped up in the cute little lights and their al fresco tables and chairs were full to the brim and bustling with customers.

Candles burning brightly, twinkling strings of fairy lights, lines of delicate lanterns swaying in the breeze – I can’t resist a wedding with such shimmering details. It’s such an easy way to add a little touch of magic to your venue.

So, here’s a little light inspiration. From real weddings to buy now pieces for your own reception or party, I hope this brightens up your day!
