Where are we supposed to sit? Where is our table?
These are questions that could come to mind to your wedding guests as they enter your wedding reception venue. But of course with a little planning you can eliminate those questions or any possible confusion with these beautiful wedding escort card and seating chart ideas that we are presenting today.
When it comes to giving directions to your wedding guests about where they should sit at your wedding reception, typically you have a choice between using wedding escort cards and wedding place cards. An escort card escorts you to your seat. A place card places you at your seat. In other words, a place card is placed at the place setting telling the guest exactly where to sit.
Another option is a seating chart in lieu of escort cards. While posted wedding seating charts are not a new idea they seem to be gaining in popularity. There are a few benefits in using a wedding seating chart instead of individual wedding escort cards. The seating chart can be completely organized (written out, printed, etc.) prior to the wedding day, meaning less set up on the big day. And with a seating chart your wedding guests won’t have to carry anything to their seat. Depending on how your organize it, a wedding seating chart may make it easier for your wedding guests to find out the others at their table.
Brides who choose the wedding escort card option typically will have escort cards at the entrance to the wedding reception venue which guests pick up to find out which table to sit at. We have featured a number of excellent DIY tutorials for wedding escort cards, including DIY wedding escort ideas; and DIY Mason Jar Wedding Escort Cards; and DIY Sun Print Wedding Escort Cards; and DIY Watercolor Wedding Escort Cards; and DIY Wedding Escort Board.
