Place Cards, Menus & Table Plan Cards
Daisy Chain Invites supply matching table stationery for your wedding breakfast and evening reception or party. Place Cards, Menus and Table Plan Stationery can be purchased to match your invitations and some designs are available with ribbon.
Place cards are placed at each place setting to ensure guests sit in the designated seats. They are only required if you have assigned guests to specific seats. This will help them find their seat quickly and easily and you can include a few details such as whether they are vegetarian or gluten free, this may help the waiting staff.
So that your guests know where to sit during the wedding breakfast, a place card should be positioned, as a guide, near each plate on every table. Place cards can be ordered in advance and can be personalised to match the colour scheme.
We supply both large table menu cards for sit down meals, usually two per table is sufficient, these can be finished in ribbon to match your theme and also detail the wines being served and the toasts. They can also detail any vegetarian courses or children’s meals. Alternatively, we can produce individual menu cards for each guest with their name on. These are much more personal and if your guests have pre-selected their meal choices in advance they can be personalised for each guest with their own meal choices detailed. These menu cards are perfect for those guests who haven’t remembered what they ordered, which could have been a few weeks prior to your wedding day or special event. We can print individual details for the starter, main course and dessert.

A wedding seating plan or table plan will almost certainly help things run more smoothly at your wedding reception.
Guests are saved from the mad panic of trying to find a seat on a table with their friends/family, and you can place people where they’ll be happiest! Making sure everyone is seated next to like minded people will ensure your reception has a good atmosphere and guests are happy chatting at their tables rather than making a dash for the exit it as soon as the reception is over.
The wedding meal may last for 2-3 hours and is a significant part of the day. If your guests are sitting with people they get along with, it will make a big difference to their enjoyment of the day.
In the UK, the Bride and Groom would traditionally sit in the middle of the wedding top table flanked by the Bride’s parents, then the Groom’s parents and finally by the Best Man and Chief Bridesmaid.
Don’t feel you need to stick with tradition though as some layouts can be particularly useful when parents have split up and are possibly with a new partner. In many cases it is helpful to abandon the restrictions which tend to come with top table plans. Sitting with friends, rather than family might be a solution? After all, it’s your wedding.
