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
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!"
October 2, 2010Fit Theme Perfectly
"I was able to personalize these Place Cards with our first names at the top and the data of our wedding on the bottom. The colors matched our theme perfectly! The paper quality was very good and held up well. All the guests kept theirs as another favor!"
August 6, 2010beautiful place card
"We bought this place card with the same design as our invitation. Again great paper and print quality. And thanks to the customer service we could get the cards without the line for the table number."
