Charming, vintage and dainty, a touch of lace adds delicate detail to your wedding seating plan.

Seating plans and escort cards

Lace blends well with a rustic theme, particularly with hessian and twine. These pretty escort cards with a lace and twine accent are a great example.

Traditional tent folded escort cards also look great with a lace accent across a corner or edge.

Doilies make a quick and easy lace effect. Use this to great effect by using one doily per table, printing guest’s names in the centre and mounting on a colour coordinated backdrop.

For the craft lovers among you, learn to tie lace ribbon into small, neat bows using a fork, and decorate your seating plan or escort cards with your creations. Here is a tutorial which shows the clever trick!

To add a simple vintage effect to your printed seating plan, ask your designer for some lace effect borders. This will add a pretty touch to any printed seating plan.

If you enjoy a sewing challenge, try sewing lace across embroidery hoops, one for each table, and mounting your seating plans on the pretty circular lace backing. Hang your hoops using ribbon, or mount on a large hessian backed frame.

Table names and numbers

Lace table numbers

Lace table numbers –

Lace actually has a number of varieties, with pretty names such as Bayeux, Bobbinet, Florentine, tulle and of course the famous Chantilly. Tables names could be easily chosen from this large selection of lace varieties.

If you are using lace as a pretty extra touch to your existing table names or numbering choices, then adding a lace border, with maybe twine or hessian accents, is a quick and easy way to incorporate lace into your theme.

Table d├ęcor

As previously mentioned, lace, hessian and twine work very well together. Decorate your glass vase or bottle centrepieces with pretty lace mounted on a wider band of hessian and wrapped around the glassware. If you would like your centrepiece to double up as a table number, print each number on simple brown card and tie on with twine for a rustic twist.

Other simple ideas to add a touch of lace:

  • Top your table runner with a decorative lace runner.
  • Wind a strip of lace around glass candle holders.
  • Place pretty lace doilies over each place mat setting.
  • Edge your menu design with lace borders or accents.
  • Find some lace edged napkins, and add a border of lace around your napkin holders.
  • Give your guests embroidered lace favours, personalised with your initials.

Other ideas

A lace accent will complement lots of other themes that we have looked at. For example, tea party, rustic, shabby chic, keys or even Gothic!
