Wedding Place Cards
Your guests have sat through the ceremony and arrived at the reception. Now, where do they sit? Enter wedding seating cards and place cards, which together, tell your friends and family which table and which seat is theirs, respectively. Seating cards, or escort cards, or seating charts, should be displayed near the reception entrance and list the guest's name and corresponding table number, while place cards are labeled with their names will be, well, at each place setting. But these little wedding details don't have to be strictly functional. They can also be fashionable! Many couples choose paper seating cards and place cards that match the rest of their stationery suite (think consistent fonts, calligraphy, and printing style), but you can also get creative with your "cards." We've seen everything from painted stones and leaves to blooms and bells with tags that double as wedding favors. There are unique and beautiful wedding place card and escort card ideas for every wedding theme and color scheme—plus so many ways to make them your own. Think of these name tags as another way to infuse your personality and give guests a tangible token all their own.
