Clever Place Card Presentation Ideas

Posted by in Create the Look

One of the first things that guests see when they enter your wedding reception space is your escort card or place card presentation.

So whether your wedding is romantic, fun, rustic or elegant, you can share that feeling with how you display your name cards.

Here are some ideas:

Place Escort Cards in Something

One of our couples took our escort cards and placed them in spices. A great idea for their Indian-inspired wedding. But I’ve also seen this done with lavender for a vintage or romantic wedding. Give it a try with berries, beads and even coffee beans!

Tie in with Wedding Theme

A cut branch was a great idea for this rustic wedding. Or for a beach wedding you can attach to shells. There are so many ways to incorporate your theme!

Hang Your Place Cards

Hanging place cards is both elegant and fun. I love this presentation with the tree…very dramatic! But it would also work hanging from a line or several lines contained in a frame.

Add Vintage Furniture to Your Name Card Presentation

If you have vintage furniture or personal items that mean a lot to you, you can incorporate them in your card presentation. It will add a vintage and intimate feeling to your wedding.

Add Your Flair to Classic Presentation

Classy and elegant never go out of style. Table top escort card presentation can be made more “you” by dressing up the table and adding designs that work with your wedding theme…and of course by the escort card design itself.

Behind the Scenes: Favorite color palettes of the month

Posted by in Color Advice, Our Designs

Our studio is filled with colors.

And what we love most about that is that they sprang from the minds and wedding palettes of our customers.

Here are some of our favorite color combinations that we have worked on recently.

Fun fact: 3 of these are from the same bride who had different color palettes for her itinerary cards, wedding ceremony and reception.

aqua and green ganesh itinerary cards

Aqua and Chartreuse Indian Beach Wedding Itinerary Cards

This is a classic beach wedding combo that we actually haven’t seen in a while.

Hunter Green and Gold Sand Dollar Save the Dates

Who says beach themes have to be light and airy? These save the dates feature the school colors for a high school reunion party on the beach.

 

Red and Blue luggage favor tags

Red, Blue and Cream Airmail World Map Luggage Favor Tags

These favor tags will actually be used along side a classic airmail inspired banner with a vintage cream background. We matched the colors so that everything will coordinate, even though the designs are different.

 

red and cream hindu wedding progam

Red, Mint and Deep Champagne Hindu Wedding Program

We find these colors to be soothing yet stately. Love it!

 

pink and champagne ganesh place cards

Pink and Deep Champagne Ganesh Escort Cards

And the last color palette from the same bride bridges the wedding ceremony by using Deep Champagne. But it has a distinctly different feeling with the light pink. It’s an elegant fun look.

Yes, Your Wedding Stationery Can Match Your Venue. Here’s How…

Posted by in Ask Imbue You

match your wedding to your venue

I sometimes hear from couples who have picked a fabulous place to get married. They love it, but are unsure how to incorporate the right colors, stationery and style to fit the venue.

So how do you make it work when your venue is your wedding theme?

Appearance and Style

The first clue for design is what does your venue look like? Does it have stunning arches, traditional columns, wooden beams or any other interesting architecture that can be inspiration? Does your venue have an obvious theme like barn or nautical. It may be hard to style your wedding differently from a venue with a very strong look and feel…so in that case just go with it.

Is there art of a certain type? What does the tableware look like? Is it traditional or modern? You’ll want to match the elegance or modernness of your venue in your wedding design if you are tying the two together.

Colors

What are the built in colors at the venue that you must work with? Think about wall color or drapery if you are not covering the walls with draping yourself.

You don’t have to use the same exact colors as the room decor, but you’ll want to make sure the colors you choose work in the space. Recently one of the brides I was working with took one of her color cues from the dishes.

Location

Are you in the city or the country, by a lake or atop a mountain? Design inspiration can come from the surrounding area especially if that’s one of the reasons you love the venue. Your location can inspire color choices and design for stationery or your cake.

Mood

Is it an intimate space, a romantic space, a casual space? You can capture a romantic mood with muted colors or simple color palettes without a lot of contrast. Alternatively a modern art galley venue might inspire you to try bold, rich colors and grand design statements.

Your Preferences

Why did you pick this venue (other than date availability!)? Does it have an Old World charm that you love? Is the view of the skyline amazing at night? Narrowing in on what makes this a great venue for your wedding will give you design clues to point you in the right style direction.
