So...I spent a lot of time making escort cards that I just love. They actually inspired my entire stationary concept.
Well, FI and I decided to give our guests an option between beef and chicken for the reception dinner. Our venue would like us to note on the placecards who will have beef/chicken. They said this can be done simply with a small sticker or little gemstone decoration. No prob, right?
My mom is kind of freaking out about this, which has in turn, made me think about it. So here'st he issue: Escort cards contain a specific guest's name and his/her guest. So there are two people to one card. How do I specify who's eating what then? Now my mom is worried that people won't take their cards to their table (which I always thought people just kind of figured they were supposed to). She wants me to create a table card for each individual guest and place it at the table. When guests come in the reception room/foyer, they would find their seats according to a seating chart/sign.
I'm not crazy about this idea, because I spent so much time making the escort cards--and now I have to make almost twice as many for each individual guest. Not too nuts about that. And I really want the cards displayed when guest's first walk in...it's been part of my "vision" and I'm having a hard time changing it. What do you ladies think?
Here's a pic of my cards. The names will be printed on a small, rectangular paper that the ribbon will be fed through. You probably can't see, but each card is covered in lace.
