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. 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.
