And many more! When you have the names for the tables, begin diving into your collection of photos to make these unique retro focal points.

5. Table plan
Table arrangement, or seating chart, is another fun approach to use retro prints. Have a major board with retro prints of your visitors' appearances, and let them search for their faces to find/search their seats. The slogan find your face to find your place' is somewhat appealing, right?
Tip: If you don't have a clue where to begin assembling these visitors' photos, Facebook is an extraordinary source.

6. Place cards
Following the table arrangement, you can likewise use retro prints for the place cards. As a rule, place cards would just include the names of the visitor, yet this is the place you set out to appear as something else. Make retro prints of your visitors and compose their names on the print, before setting it at their seat on the table. By the day's end, this will be something nice your visitors/guests could keep for themselves.

At the point when the wedding is finished, you can still utilize retro prints for notes to say thanks. Simply pick the best photo from the wedding for your notes to say thanks, get a print, and compose your thank-you messages on the back before sending them off.
