It may seem early to be thinking about items for your reception when ordering your wedding invitations but doing so could save you time later. One of those reception accessories are place cards for a wedding.
Place cards are used to help guests find their seats at your reception. Their name will be written on the card and, if you choose, a specific table number. Usually your first names and your wedding date will be pre-printed on the cards so it just makes sense for you to order them right along with your invitations.
You can choose a simple white card or, many times, there will be cards that perfectly match your invitation design. No matter the design you choose, these cards are folded in half to become smaller tent cards for standing on their own at each place setting.
