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.

February 21, 2011Beautiful card but you can't use calligraphy pens
"These cards are absolutely beautiful. Turned out better than I hoped. But when we have started to write out the names- a calligraphy pen won't work because the material of the paper is like porous (that's the only reason I gave the paper quality a 3, it's really a very good quality paper but the porous-ness is very annoying). So instead we are using Sharpie pens- which is definitely working out nicely, but took a bit of work to figure out what pens would work on it. Just be ready to not use calligraphy pens!"
April 10, 2009peony cards
"I loved how these cards turned out. and my delivery was quick and without incident. I would order again. my only suggestion would be to offer more colour combinations I went with a periwinkle/white and silver theme ( old Hollywood) and found it hard to find a pattern to match. but these place cards were beautifull and they will look nice on my tables with silver glam accents."
