So here is something I JUST thought of. I have this wonderful calligrapher I am working with on my invitations, she is literally the best both personality wise and also very talented. So it was a no-brainer to me that she would do our place cards as well. But, I have in my calendar "finish seating chart" the weekend before my wedding, so my question(s) are:
Is that too late to do the seating chart? I just assumed that's the proper timeline since you are waiting for RSVPs etc. ( I will obviously start it earlier, but am anticipating last minute changes)
But if so, there is no way to have place cards made professionally if you are finalizing a week out. Especially not with a calligrapher in Idaho. So what did everyone do for the place cards? Hand write? Print yourself? Do your seating chart earlier?
