With summer weddings fast approaching, it’s time to focus on the finer details of wedding planning. The orders of service, buttonholes, flowers, menus have all been decided on, but it can be the smaller details that can cause the greatest indecision. Whilst country weddings lend themselves to more rustic placecards, we are frequently asked advice for London-themed placement cards that are both chic and unique. Here is our guide to super-stylish placement cards for London wedding:
Themed – You are spoilt for choice with London-themed placement cards with the rich history of the city. Avoid the kitsch by seeking a twist to your design. Tube maps for table settings and co-ordinating placement cards will add a sense of fun to table arrangements, offset with minimalist table settings and stylised floral arrangements to keep the chic touch. Alternatively add a hint of Victoriana with Penny Farthing bicycle motifs and Dickensian illustrations. Topography inspired names cards are an alternative to the bold iconic Underground signs. Use The London A-Z of memorable places to adorn placement cards. Guests will love searching for their name among familiar street names.
Landmarks and Icons – The London bus and London taxis are synonymous with the London landscape. Use miniatures vehicles as placecard holders for your seating arrangement or pick a hand-drawn image to add vibrancy to the table. For a simpler look, paper-cut silhouettes of the London skyline are a stunning way of incorporating the landmarks of London.
Chic Urban Style –London has long been associated with fashion and culture. Play on this relationship with a sleek and sophisticated style for the place settings. We love mirrored surfaces for place names. Mirror placemats with guests’ names written on are reminiscent of grand hotel ballrooms from the 20s and 30s.
