Gilded agate coasters are easily the most stunning element when placed on the dining table. The beautiful spirals of color and the gold finish lend a celebratory vibe to any drink. So if you’re looking to up the ante for your wedding toasts, gilded agate coasters are the perfect elegant touch you can add.
Agate Placecards & Table Numbers
Placecards may be a physically small element on the table settings, but they serve as landmarks around the venue. That said, upgraded placecards give off the impression that in your wedding, the little details count—and that you give your guests thoughtful navigational help.
Deviate from the usual cardstock and try something elevated, such as calligraphed gilded agate slices. They are an irresistibly chic way of directing your guests to their respective tables.
Set the tone for your party with whimsical, geode stationery. Agate is enveloped in swirls of color that, when emulated on paper or cardstock, naturally frame your messages, menus, or programme. The hints of gold add that much-needed luxe. Did we mention that this stationery is a pretty inexpensive way to charm your guests? You have the option to shop it online. But for a more personal touch, DIY it yourself!
