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 20, 2011Great placecard
"The paper quality was great, and it will be the perfect wedding place card. I plan to print the guest names on each card. I am sure they will be well-received and match my invitations!"
June 20, 2011Modern and Pretty!
"I avoided anything frumpy for my Colorado mountain wedding, so these placecards were perfect! Clean and modern, but still pretty (I got them in navy). They paper and printing looked and felt nice and the space to write in names and table numbers is just the right size. Our photographer took a great shot of all the cards set up and this design photographs really well!"
March 29, 2010Awesome Place Card!
"I love this set of place cards! It came in the mail really quickly and was the quality I was looking for, in the price-range I needed. Simple, yet elegant! I love them!"
February 24, 2010Fun and Festive!
"Our wedding colors were apple green and fuschia, so this card matched perfectly. We used a fuschia pen to write in our guests' names. My husband was happy to avoid a floral theme and I liked that it was printed on white stock instead of boring ivory. It really stood out on the tables and added an upbeat, contemporary accent."
November 12, 2009Simple and elegant
"Our table cloths are red, so I really wanted something black and white to place at the guest tables. I like the thickness of the card stock. I wanted to write in the table numbers and guest names, so I just requested the "You are seated at table" wording. I ordered these to accompany the "Toile Border" suite."
