For most weddings, wedding planning is not limited to preparing for the ceremony itself. It also means choosing all the decorative materials needed for the reception that follows afterward. And one of the key wedding stationery designs that needs to be created for wedding brunches, luncheons, or dinner reception events is a wedding table card.
Wedding table cards are small signage items printed on premium paper or card stock that will indicate either the table number or the name of the person designated to sit at a specific table or place during a wedding reception. These printables are primarily used to organize the seating arrangements of all the wedding guests without having to personally escort each one to their respective seats.
When creating table cards, wedding planners will usually need to use pre-made wedding templates so that all the wedding card designs will follow the same motif or theme. A pre-made template of wedding table cards also allows couples and wedding planners to use their time and resources for other aspects of wedding planning.
