Place card ideas... help!

I am trying to come up with place card and table number ideas that dont break the bank... Help!!

Re: Place card ideas... help!

  • We are doing river stones for our place cards. We are trying to keep a rustic casual feel to the wedding so these were perfect, and we get to take a trip to the beach! haha

  • We are using 2-3 old wooden windo panes with a paint pen- sounds weird but you can find some cute pics. Ive also seen old shutter does used and slip them in the slots.

    Will it be outside? Inside? Do you want individual cards?

  • we're going the boring route of having regular old place cards with the names and table names on them; we kinda of have to since we're serving plated meals, and that way we can put what each guest ordered on it as well.

  • Thanks so much!!! The river rocks is a very cute idea and we are also doing a rustic theme...
  • There are some cute ideas on etsy

  • Pardon my wedding ignorance, but are place cards for saving specific seats and escort cards for directing guests to the right table? I'm confused.

    Place cards usually already placed at each table, at a specific seat and many times signify what meal you choose if there were options for a sit-down dinner.

    Escort cards usually have the guests' name and assigns them to a specific table, but not a specific chair.

    Anyone correct me if I'm wrong.

    PP, we are just using printable escort cards. I got them on clearance at Target so I figured I'd take the easy way out.

  • We're not doing place cards.  For escort cards we're probably printing them ourselves (or having Kinkos or something do it) with our monogram and the names.

    For table numbers, I got this idea from the NJ site, but I'm thinking of using our engagement photos and having a graphic artist friend help us print up the pictures very light with the number darker, or other way around (maybe alternate tables and do both).  Simple, yet elegant.
