The hardest part is over. You’ve already finished your seating chart and made sure that your single friend from college is sitting next to your fiance’s cute co-worker and that your one crazy aunt is at table full of people who will love her jokes. Now onto the fun part – designing your escort and place cards!
First things first. Decide if you want escort cards, place cards or both! Depending on the type of wedding that you want and the amount of formality and preciseness in your seating chart, there are tons of different options for your design and display. We’ve included a little bit of info about each option (and of course, gorgeous inspiration) to make your decision making process that much easier.
Place cards just include the guest’s name. These are found on the table at the place where the guest will be sitting, directing them to a specific seat.
Use your wedding theme to give your guests a place card that doubles as a favor (or as a sweet snack!)
Display your guests’ names on sea shells in calligraphy for your beach themed wedding. The sky is the limit when it comes to your wedding day.
*For a formal plated dinner, you can choose to have both a seating chart and a place card. You really can have your cake and eat it too.
