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
June 17, 2012beautiful, but much smaller than I pictured
"These are beautiful and coordinate perfectly with the other programs and menu cards in this line. We're using this for our nautical wedding. I should have paid more attention to the dimensions listed in the description, these are really small. We'll probably still use them but I would have preferred something with more room for the first and last names."
June 21, 2011Great Place cards
"WPD had tons of styles and options to choose from. Finally settled on this design. We had some customization requests on what text was printed on the cards. The designers emailed me the next day with a proof and it was perfect. Thanks for a great experience and hassle free purchase."

June 6, 2011Place card
"I ordered the Antique Border invitations in the dark red colour and got these for our reception to match. I asked WeddingPaperDivas to take off the Table.... so we just had the two border lines and I wrote names on the cards. They looked great, very classic and simple and the paper quality was excellent - easy to fold and the cards stood up really well."
