Weddings! I love them but I am thankful I never had to get married again…fingers crossed that after 11 years together we are in the home stretch 😉
One of my dear friends is getting married on Saturday here in South Florida. Planning a wedding is not fun but planing it from afar makes it worse. She panicked on me a few weeks ago and mentioned that she still didn’t have wedding place cards. I calmed her down and promised to help her out since she has been in New York this entire time. We talked through a few ideas and came down to something simple with the same font as all the wedding stationary. It is a black tie wedding with everything written out in Spanish and as formal as possible, so I had to make sure it all tied in with the feel of what she had in mind.
After I found the matching font and the right colors for the papers, I got to work. Why is it that printers alway go crazy when you are on a deadline? Maybe it is just mine but it freaked out and I was stuck trying to get it to work and print on the off-white cardstock. Thankfully, it all worked out and I was ready to go after an hour of fighting with it.
After convincing the printer to work and triple-checking the names, everything was printed and ready to cut down to size. It is hard to tell but the rectangles around the names are not solid lines, it was actually a really thin dotted line which made it easier to cut off.
I used my trusty adhesive gun to tape down the printed names to the moss green folded tent place cards. As simple as they are, these wedding place cards are perfect fit for the overall wedding.
I can’t wait to see them all set up on display the night of the wedding. Hopefully, I will grab a photo if I am not too busy dancing and drinking the night away.
I can’t wait for this weekend! I have my dress ready to be picked up tonight, the hubby has his tux ready, and all the little details ready to go.
Did you have a formal wedding or something completely different? We went pretty untraditional but had some parts that tied in with traditional items.
Thanks for following Directions Not Included!
