Succulents offer a unique and intricate design, with their thick leaves that stores water within them, allows them to strive in warm and dry climates, needing very little tending to. So, not only will your guests be able to find their seats within these little beauties, as you can label their pots with names and numbers, or include a fun little sign sticking out of their dirt, but they can also serve as a wedding favor that allows your love to keep growing.

·         Cookies. Baked in a variety of flavors, you can almost guarantee that your wedding guests will enjoy cookies if you choose to create them to be your place cards. The fun aspect of cookies, is that you can create many flavors and designs. For your table number information, you can cut the shape of the cookie to reflect the table number, and write the name in frosting among the cookie, for a delicious and informational outcome, that can also serve as wedding favors as well.

·         Leaves. For a more natural approach, especially for a Fall wedding, consider using dry leaves as your place cards, as they will bring an earthy feel to your big day in an absolutely stunning way. Create your leaves to be either all alike in size, or choose different sizes and shapes for a more personalized approach, then, choose a beautiful colored ink to create lovely calligraphy among them, displaying your seating arrangements.
