- Wedding: October 2010
I’ve been dreading place cards and table numbers. We don’t really have a “theme” per se, it’s more of just traditional elegance. Our colors are eggplant/blue and greens. So it’s a pretty elegant take on “fall.” Theres no orange, pumpkins, or leaves…
We’re expecting around 180 ish guests, so I’d like to keep the cost per “card” to about $1.
I saw this a few times on the knot, and I think this might be the perfect soln.
They are green apple candles. I’ve found a ton of red apple candles, and I found a great Pear candle… but do pears feel as “fall’ish” as apples? The only green apple candles I’ve been finding are out of country or $5-7 each. Too expensive.
These are the pear candles I found… 2 for $1.99
I also thought of maybe alternating Apples and pears? Then, once we solve the missing apple candle….
How do I print and cut or format a leaf? I’m horrible at handwriting so that’s not really an option…
Or, will this probably not work at all for our wedding… This is out venue (sorry so large) and will be lit similar with the purples/blues.. no stars and the walls too…
Black Table Cloths. Centerpieces are alternating square containers black or clear. The black has moss with curly willow, delphinium and dendrobium and a variegated grass. The clear has river rocks with the grass in the container with the same in a different shape. One is tall and one is short and wide….. if that makes sense..
So, I guess I’m wondering….
1) does this idea work? If yes continue to question 2 🙂 If no, please tell me! Especially if you have another idea…
2) Just Apples, Just Pears, or Both?
3) Any idea on WHERE to get these cost effectively?
4) Ideas on how to do the actual seating card via a printer and not by hand?
