Wedding Seating Card Ideas
Once you have completed the difficult but necessary task of deciding where your guests are seated for your wedding reception, you can contemplate the more fun task of organising wedding seating cards which direct guests to their seats. There are so many lovely ways to direct guests to their seats. Here are some of our unique ideas.
Display table cards together at the entrance to the reception - Make sure your cards are in alphabetical order, particularly if you have a large reception with lots of guests, so guests can find their name easily and locate the table they are seated at. The display can be as simple as simple tented place cards with the guest name and table number listed underneath, so the guest can pick up their card and take it to their table where they will find their place card.
Incorporate your wedding favours into the display - A beautiful way to escort guests to their seats is by displaying the guest names and table number on their wedding bombonieres at the entrance to the reception. A table full of wedding coaster favours or bomboniere candy with an attached escort card will allow guests to collect their favours as they also are guided to their reception seats.
Seating cards can be edible - How is this for a yummy idea. Have your wedding bombonieres be personalised wedding chocolate bars and attach your seating cards to the chocolate bars. Or, why not attach the escort cards to a personalised lollipop wedding favour? Stand up the lollypops in a long vase filled with sand or florists foam (cover with a decoration like coloured shred, coloured sand or pebbles) and guests can take a lickety-pop with them to their correct seats.
Garden escort cards make pretty displays - For a garden themed wedding, why not lay your escort cards on a bed of rose petals or other petals that match your wedding flowers? This frangrant display makes a very pretty entrance for guests.
Beach seating cards laid in sand - Beach weddings are fun for decorations. There are so many ways to display your beach seating cards - you could attach them to miniature flip flop favours, let them rest on their side in coloured sand, or attach them to a natural starfish which doubles as a decorative beach bomboniere idea.
Hang seating cards from branches - One of the prettiest ideas for displaying seating cards is to hang them from branches at the entrance to the reception and let guests "pick" their escort cards off the tree. This pretty idea works well for smaller weddings as it can become confusing for large numbers of guests.
Create a board with guests names - A practical and lovely idea that we adore is to create a board with guests names at the entranceway. A magnetic heart shaped frame (shown above) will sit neatly on a board and let guests pick off their favour as well as guide them to their seats.
Create a seating chart - If you have more than 10 tables, you might like to use a seating chart instead of escort cards for guests. A large seating chart or poster at the entrance to the reception with ushers assisting guests to their tables is a great idea, both practically and efficiency wise, for a large wedding.
