Now that you have put unique twist on your table numbers, you need to think about place cards! Place cards can be done in so many fun ways, and  here are a few of our favorites…

  • Leave a polaroid camera on the same table with the place cards. When your guest take their place card have them replace it with a photo of themselves! This will get everyone laughing and the party will start immediately. Plus, you will have a photo of every guest at your wedding! To make sure everyone can see the pictures, display the place cards and photos using a clothesline.
  • If you are short on table space use a clothes line, pin board, or magnetic board to display the cards in a vertical manner.
  • Use a glass rim place card: Have your place cards cut into a shape, such as a hummingbird, and place it on the edge of a wine glass. Guests will be able to find their place and be ready for a drink as well!
  • If your favors come in a box, write your guests name and table number on the box and have it double as your place cards!
  • Match your place cards to your theme. Having a beach wedding? Use shells or small drink umbrellas to dress up your place cards. A travel theme? Make the place cards look like boarding passes or passports. Going green? Give each guest a potted plant with their name and seat number on the pot.

At Ovation Images, Pittsburgh Wedding Photographers, we love a good party!! If you want to make sure that you can keep your party going follow these simple tips:
  • Many venues have a limit on how late they can stay open due to city ordinances. If you have a late-afternoon wedding and are planning a late reception, make sure you know when it has to end.
  • Likewise, talk with your vendors in advance to see how much it would cost to extend the time they are providing services. Knowing the cost in advance will make the decision simpler. Also ask if you can extend one hour at a time in case you need more than one extension!

Ovation Images Wedding Photography Tip #50:

If you want your guests to dance, you have to be on the dance floor. Your guests will tend to do what you do. If you are walking around visiting tables all night, they will sit at the table waiting for your visit. If you are on the dance floor , they will come up and dance just to be with you. So get out there and get dancing! Not only is it fun, but it makes for amazing wedding reception photos!!
