Polaroid Place Cards

Posted on September 10, 2013 by  David   //   6 Comments

To me, anything personalized for your wedding is a plus because it continues the memory of the people and experiences from that special day, and not just for yourselves but for your guests as well.

What you see here is a great way to do something personalized that is place card related. Hanging clothespins on a line and putting guests’ name cards there to replace with a photo is such an awesome thing to do at the beginning of the night. The concept is that you take your place card and replace it with a polaroid photo of yourself. You can either have this placed in the entrance of the reception space so it is seen by guests as they enter, or you can put it out later in the evening so guests can have fun with it after the party has started. It’s just a great way for people to show their smiles and their excitement; they can even write little notes on the bottom of the Polaroids wishing you great things for your marriage together.

    David, I think this is a fabulous idea. I would get coordinating colors of the wedding and paint the clothes pins white for a more finished look.
    There are also plastic clothes pins in colors that can be matched.

  3. Beautiful! This would also be pretty on a screen door.

    Although this is a great idea, I’d have to say that it is costly because Polaroid film was discontinued and is very expensive. The Impossible Project sells some, but again, expensive.

    David, I just love this idea, what a way for everyone to feel that they have a little part of a beautiful day. The bride and groom will have a great time afterwards in seeing everyone’s picture. Remembering my wedding (31 years ago) I could not tell you who was or was not at the wedding. The only two people I remember is myself and my groom.
