Wedding place cards are one of the often overlooked wedding stationary items that are just as vital as wedding menus or programs. Remember that complicated seating chart that you and your fiancé pored over for hours? Your place cards or escort cards, will be used to tell people where to sit according to that chart, careful seat planning can save time and headaches by creating stimulating conversation and avoiding family feuds. There are a lot of great ways to display your wedding place cards at your wedding for easy access and to avoid mix-ups. A corkboard with the place cards pinned on it for your guests to find and take to their own seat works well, just be sure to include table numbers or table names on the cards. You can also place the cards at the tables and guests can mill around and find their own names, with this method you can use the cards alone or pin a flower to them, place them with a wedding favor or even pin them into an apple or other hardy fruit for an earthy chic look. Be sure to order your wedding place cards in a color that matches or compliments your other wedding stationary, especially your menu and programs.
Customer reviews of our Wedding Place Cards & Reception Place Cards
October 21, 2014Quick Turnaround
"We were not going to do seating assignments but at the last minute it became clear that it would be better to do so. I ordered these the week of our wedding and got them within 36 hours. No problems! We used a fine tip marker to hand-write the names - no smudging or bleeding. Good quality and incredibly fast shipping. Matched our invitation suite, menu cards and programs."
August 17, 2014simple, fun
"We didn't' need the reference to table number as this was a place card only, not an escort card, so we removed that, changed the colors to navy, and added a reminder about what entree people chose to the back of the card to help guests and servers alike. I love the simplicity of this suite of designs. I wanted to use the 'nuff said invites too but was vetoed by the fiance. I'm glad we got to use them for both the menu and place card."
June 24, 2012Perfect for woodsy themed wedding!
"We are having our wedding in a barn on a lake and these were perfect for it! I love the night sky with fireflies on it, since we all will be surrounded by that once everything gets underway. It's perfect for when our guests arrive for the reception. The printing is perfect, the paper is sturdy, I can't wait to see how they display on the table. Very pleased with this product!"
March 15, 2012Oversized place cards - nice!
"Really love these place cards - they are nicely oversized and leave plenty of room to print. I am using them with wine corks as the holder and cutting off the back side that is used to make them stand alone."

"We ordered our wedding invitations from Wedding Paper Divas and was very impressed with the quality, price, and customer service. I did not hesitate to look for my escort cards at the same website. We were again impressed with their product. No need to look elsewhere."
