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

"Keep in mind when ordering these that not everyone you invite will attend- we ended up with a couple dozen left over! We did put some of the extras to use, though, by cutting off the flowers in the corner and using them to decorate other things."
October 21, 2012Lovely place card
"I love this design and every time I order another piece of stationary for our big day, I fall in love with the design all over again."

"We were a bit worried about ordering invites sight unseen from the US, so we ordered a couple different samples first.... They arrived quickly and every single invite was pretty and professional looking! When we finally placed our actual order, we took another risk and orderded it in a colour other than our sample and absolutely love it! We really appreciated the fact that before they complete your order they send you an email with the prototype that they have looked over and offer ways to improve the look.. And they were right in all their suggesstions! We couldn't be happier :-)"
