If you’re adding up all the things on your wedding checklist, perhaps you’re wondering how in the heck you’ll get it all done on time. If this sounds like you, you’re not alone and… there’s an app — okay, a printable — for that!
Emma here and there’s a really easy way to accomplish a bunch of wedding reception must-haves in record time. This is done through using wedding printables, also known as wedding templates you can print at home in an instant.
Here’s how it works: you buy a digital file, edit the template, grab some paper and ink or head to your local print shop. That’s it! You can cross off all the wedding reception signs, tags, place cards, and more that you have been putting off for too long. Or better yet, get a head-start and know you’re ahead of the curve! (Yay for not procrastinating!)
One resource with wedding reception printables is Crossvine Designs. In addition to offering elegant and classy wedding printables, the templates are super-easy to use, even for beginners!
To inspire you and kick your you-know-what into wedding planning gear, we’ve picked seven of our favorite printables from their shop solely for your reception. Here are seven things you can print right now and put aside for your big day. Let’s get started!
Wedding Reception Printables
1. Wedding menu
What’s for dinner? That’s one of the first things your guests will wonder at your reception, especially if there is a buffet of family-style dinner (without having selected an entree first on the invitations).
2. Printable escort cards
Another question that comes to mind at your wedding is: where am I sitting? Use these printable escort cards to seat guests and even identify what meal choice they selected (if needed). This will also eliminate confusion from the kitchen when meals are brought out, so they can see exactly what meal each guest pre-selected.
3. Custom “Did You Know” table numbers
Identify your wedding tables with proper numbers. These are even more fun because they offer a fun “did you know” line on each one, giving guests insights into how you met, your hobbies, your favorite musicians, and more.
If you prefer a smaller table number, one of these is another great printable option that is available.
4. Welcome sign and printable seating chart
This printable wedding seating chart is also a warm welcome sign for guests! Show guests where they are seated with this functional chart which adds a beautiful decorative element to your reception. It is simple to edit!
5. S’mores favor tag
Give guests a take-home favor — like s’mores, who doesn’t love those?! — with these easy printable wedding tags. Just assemble the rest of the favors and add this tag to them. It’s really easy!
6. Wedding sparklers sign
Invite guests to join you for a sparkler send-off with this beautiful sign. Just edit, print, and frame.
7. Guest book sign
One of the most popular things to print yourself? Definitely the guest book wedding reception printables. There are a bunch of designs available in the shop.
BONUS: I Spy Game
Make sure you entertain guests at your wedding, especially the kids! This I Spy Game is a fun way to get your guests to break the ice / make conversation, meet new people, and check out areas of the reception.
You can download and print any of the decorations you see here, plus see even more in the shop! Heather is awesome to work with, so you’re in great hands. Just ask if you run into any questions or leave them in the comment box below!
