I am right now trying to decide what kind of name cards will we have on our own wedding. So i thought i would first decided TO HAVE or NOT TO HAVE a place card holders at all, and then everything else! If we will have holders i would want something interesting looking, but something that won't make tables look too full of staff, which i think can easily happen with name card holders. But anyway here are some things i found so far, some of which perhaps are little less traditional :)

An interesting idea would be to use an old decorated wine corks as a table card holders. I think something like this could be easily done. First you need to start saving all the wine corks.... Yeah LOTS of wine corks. If your wedding is still years from now, then i would suggest to start drinking wine now hehe :) Otherwise you can get this name card holders from Kara's Vineyard Wedding
There we saw some wine corks used as a name cards... But how about champagne cages..?This little chair name card holders are made by Becky Kazana
Or maybe champagne corks with some sparkle ? Karas Vineyard Wedding
Elegant name card or table number holders with pearls by CreativeStamps . I like this kind of items that you can see been used after the wedding as well. They could be a nice photo holders and a gift for your guest to take home with.
Or how about letting your guests pick their name cards and choose the seats on the specific table by themselves ? This way less headache on who will seat next to whom and there is no need to find a place for the card on the table. Escort Card Holders by Spotted Ink Shop

Table name card with a flower in each. I think in this case there not necessarily any other flower arrangements needed on the table. And i love the idea of each guest getting a flower to take with them home! Well, you could say this holders hold flower and not a card, but they are lovely :) Photo from here

Adorable heart topped kissing bell place card holders.. I think this silver place card bells look very cute and i think could be a nice little gift for guests to take with them as a reminded about the wedding. I'm not too sure Finnish guests will get the idea about playing bells to make wedding couple kiss, but who knows... And it could turn into a nightmare with all the kids running and playing bells non stop hehe. But otherwise i think it would be a new idea here as i don't think many have seen such on a wedding or anywhere else. One thing i am not sure. Perhaps they are little too modern looking for what i am wanting on our wedding day and the colour silver might be off... But yeah they simply adorable <3 Bell place cards from Light In The Box
