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
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."
July 19, 2014Useful
"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."
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."
February 21, 2011Great Product for Vineyard Wedding
"We are getting married in Sonoma County surrounded by vineyards. I looked all over to find something that fit with our location. I am glad I found this - they are very nice, and good quality!"
May 18, 2010Vineyard Place Card
"The Rustic Romance place cards fit perfectly with my daughter's vineyard themed wedding. She was especially happy to see that this design was available in place cards, as she had used it for her Save the Dates months ago. We love that items can be personalized with specific instructions to Wedding Paper Divas. Since the tables at the wedding will be identified by using the names of wines, rather than with numbers, we needed a longer line on which to write the names. This was easily accomplished by asking the company to move the word "Table" all the way to the left, and to print a longer line. The cards came out perfect! We are very happy with the quality of the paper and especially with the ability to proof and revise items before ordering them. Besides the Save the Dates and the place cards, I also used Wedding Paper Divas for her bridal shower invitations and for the ceremony programs. I was very happy with them as well. I highly recommend Wedding Paper Divas' products!"
