Where do you get cork place card holders for wedding tables? Is there a certain style that looks best? Let’s tackle this question!
Are you looking for cork place card holders to use at your wedding reception?
If you were looking for place card holders of any kind and decided on cork as a choice, I like the way you think.
Cork is easily my favorite way to hold up a place card and for good reason. They also look good, but that’s just part of it.
Cork isn’t just for looks, although many may argue that it looks exceptional in any wedding space, any theme, and with any color palette. True, true, and true. Cork holders are functional and help to keep those cards standing upright so they don’t fall over in your guests’ salads, soups, or worse, get tossed over and lost completely.
But wait, there’s more… and we’re teaching you everything we know so far about cork place card holders. Let’s do it!
Cork Place Card Holders for Weddings
Why is cork such a good idea for holding place cards? There are five reasons why you should use cork as a place card holder at your wedding.
1. Cork Goes With Almost Any Theme
For starters, cork ties in beautifully with rustic, vintage, classic, or wine-themed weddings.
2. Cork Holders Are Lightweight
Second, cork holders are lightweight. When you buy them online and have them shipped, it’s not as expensive as other heavier items. Plus, transporting cork place card holders to the reception is a breeze.
3. Place Card Holders Made of Cork Are Secure + Affordable
Third, they are wildly affordable yet secure enough to do the trick. All they need to do is hold place cards and make them stand upright; cork place card holders do the trick!
Why pay more for clunky place card holders you’ll never use again? These are affordably priced and make sense with your budget.
5. Cork Holders Double As Favors
Guests will actually want to take the card holders home with them, as they should! Cork is one of the only place card holders that can also double as favors.
Where to Buy Cork Place Card Holders
Now that you know why cork is a great option, let’s talk about the best place to get it. You can buy beautiful handmade cork place card holders at one of my favorite shops on Etsy: Kara’s Vineyard Wedding. Kara is a sweetheart and her work is incredible. Just read the reviews: they speak for themselves!
You can’t find these cork holders anywhere else. This is a signature style that Kara has designed and perfected over the years, perfectly suited to your individual color palette and style.
To top it off, Kara adds beautiful flowers to one side of the cork to make it stand out (and perhaps add a little weight for security). You can customize the color palette to suit your own wedding colors, but check out this elegant option below. It’s a fan favorite!
Cork Place Holders Without Flowers
If you prefer a minimalist style without flowers, the corks can be made by themselves — and they look amazing, too!
What Kind of Place Cards Should You Use?
You can use any standard-sized place cards like these, which fit perfectly into the corks. To make your cards look as beautiful as the examples above, we recommend hiring calligraphy from SouthernCalligraphy. Jane does amazing work and her cards are featured in some of the photos above.
