Autumn and winter weddings usually have a theme. Whether it’s fall themed or a winter wonderland look the tail end the wedding season usually comes with lots of festivity. That’s where color comes into play. Of course all of your decorations will match, but when it comes to table settings that is where your guests will be spending the most time which means those small details like place cards will be remembered. Choose colors that will accent your overall theme. Try green or plum to match the changes trees or silver and red if it’s closer to Christmas. Get creative with your colors!
Foil is the loveliest touch when it comes to stationery and foil place cards are no exception. Especially on a table lit with candles a foil accent will shine and glimmer effortlessly. Choose gold, silver, or rose gold foil to match your overall aesthetic. Either way you can’t go wrong!
If you are trying to keep things simple when it comes to place cards try choosing a seasonal design and keeping your color neutral. Choose a rustic floral design for a crisp fall wedding or a fancy scroll design for your chilly winter wedding. Adding just a touch of the seasons in your place card design will do wonders for your table decor.
