Have a Seat: Place Setting 101

place setting how to

If I had to narrow down what makes for a jaw dropping wedding into just two words I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to say “the details”. (It’s not a coincidence that’s the name of this blog.) It’s the events pulled together by couples who have put their personal touch on every component of their wedding that stand out amongst the rest as unique and truly swoon-worthy. And although I can’t tell you exactly how to personalize your celebration, I certainly can break down which elements to focus on. And what better area to concentrate your efforts on than one that’s repeated by potentially the hundreds, your guest table place settings. From top to bottom, here’s how to personalize yours.

Cheers

Consider what beverages you’ll be serving and arrange for upgraded stemware to serve each in. Consider your wines (separate glass for red and white), water, champagne and any signature drinks. And don’t be afraid to mix and match designs, like something ornate with something simple.

Have a Seat

Take the guessing game out of the equation for your guests and mark their spots with a stylized theme appropriate place card holder. Finish the look off with a fresh floral accent for an unexpected extra.

On The Menu

Get your guests’ taste buds going and add another layer of dimension to your place settings with customized dinner menus.  Incorporated into each setting they act as the perfect plate accessory and bring a sophisticated level of formality to the overall look.

Tiny Treats

Show your appreciation up front with a thoughtful token of thanks. Feature your guest favors at each place setting to ensure they don’t go unnoticed.

Every Last Detail

To really impress leave nothing as standard. Upgrade to a customized set of flatware to complete the decorative visual of your table set up. Keep with the design of all your other setting components for a cohesive overall presentation.
