Luggage tags… oh how we love them!

Luggage tags have so many uses at weddings, especially if you’re in to a bit of DIY. They will add a wonderful finishing touch to your table decorations, especially if you’re having a destination wedding as they’ll tie together your ‘travel’ theme perfectly. As most luggage tags are manila or cream they look great at vintage theme or English country garden weddings. Tie them with twine, lace or colourful ribbon depending on your style.

So how are you going to use your luggage tags at your wedding? Are you stuck for unique ideas? I have put together a selection of different ways you could use luggage tags at your wedding reception.

Escort Cards and Table Plans

Direct guests to their seats using luggage tag escort cards, to have a vintage inspired look use mini pegs, lace or twine to tie them. I love the simplicity of hanging your escort cards from trees and the bird cage table plan is simply stunning. Make each luggage tag unique by decorating them with scrabble letters, hearts or material flowers.

Luggage Tags As Place Settings

Using luggage tags as your name cards for guests is simple yet effective. Tie the luggage tags around napkins, glasses, tea cups, bottles, or my favourite a piece of fruit.

Extra Vintage Decorations

Use an old suitcase or trunk  to collect cards and love notes from your guests, decorate the trunk with tags spelling out LOVE NOTES or CARDS. Finish off your vintage favours with tags and even use them on chair backs.

  1. Ooh I love the idea of luggage tags, but could someone tell me the best way of printing a design on them please?

    I would like these as my table place names, but would like to print on them rather than handwrite?

    Any suggestions?
