Wedding place cards are a must-have when it comes to your reception. This is an easy way for you to plan out your reception seating and they allow guests to find their place without confusion. Not to mention they add a wonderful bit of style to your dining tables. The place cards are there to make your guests feel welcome and invite them to become part of the party instead of just attending it.

These wedding place card templates are extremely easy to use. You'll need to download them, customize them with your guests' names, print them, and then fold them into place cards. They look best when printed out on heavier cardstock because you'll want them to be able to stand up on their own.

It will work best if you print these cards out on card stock so they have the strength to stand up when you fold them. You can change the whole look of the place card easily by using colored card stock or a different wedding font.
