What do you think of place card holders? Do most people use them? If not, why?

Some can be so beautiful and make the table, but are they worth it?

    Hi Jo, funnily enough, we wrote an article on place card holders this week - rather than place cards in holders, a lot of brides use name cards instead, here's a link to the piece, hopefully you'll feel inspired!

  • Depends if you have the money to spare. I think they look lovely but I can't justify the expense for something that just gets thrown away.

    Thank you for replying! That is really interesting thank you! So a lot of it depends on budget? Do many people recycle their place card holders, is there anything else they could be used for afterwards?

    Do you mean something to hold the bit of card with the person's name on?

    In the time running up to our wedding I collected a stack of champagn & prosecco corks (enlisted friends and family help with the hard task of necking fizz🍾) to use as place card holders. I just sliced the tops with a Stanley knife and then then cards slot in, worked a treat and looked really cure, didn't take long either. Xx
