These are set out for guests to pick up as they enter the reception. Each lists a guest’s name (or the names of a couple or family) and lets them know which table they’re assigned to sit at for the dinner.
Even for a small wedding, it’s a good idea to pick guests’ seats instead of letting them choose their own. Otherwise, your grandparents can get stuck in the back while your fiance’s coworkers score prime spots.
Artful escort card displays help add instant decor to your reception. Just be sure to pick a spot that guests can easily access!
Place Cards mark guests’ seats.
If you’re hoping to have your friends mingle, assigning seating with place cards can get them to chat. If you’re having long banquet tables, assigning specific spots will keep groups together.
Seating/place cards are used to let guests know where they should be seated at the reception and are a good way of putting people together so they feel most comfortable. Place cards should be laid out alphabetically on a table at the entrance to the reception. Each card should correspond to a table — either by number, color, or other identifying factor. Each table should be marked accordingly.
