How To DIY Modern Geometric Wedding Place Cards

Everything looks better with glitter

Here’a pro-tip you can take to the bank: most wedding DIYs you see on Pinterest are not built for scale. That is to say…it’s really easy to make one table look amazing without spending a zillion dollars, but twenty tables? That’s a whole ‘nother ball game. But there are ways to make it work! One secret is to look for things that are already available in bulk. Teachers’ resources can be an awesome place to find materials you’ll need large quantities of, because they’re often sold in classroom-sized numbers. Which is exactly what these place settings are all about.

Wedding designer extraordinaire Michelle Edgemont whipped up these modern geometric place cards by filling geometry teaching tools with glitter (it’s basically a glitter terrarium, you guys) and combining them with place cards that match our stained glass seating chart. When it comes to sit down meals, I’m pro assigning seats, since walking into a reception and realizing you have to pick your own seat is like being in the high school cafeteria all over again. But only you know for sure if you need a seating chart, place cards, or some combination of both.

Here’s what you’ll need:
