@AshleyR83:  I used a lot of rhinestone stickies for my wedding theme (i.e. programs, invites, etc.) so I used three kinds of rhinestones on the cards. For example, for beef we used a dark orange, fish – a light orange, and chicken was a clear rhinestone

I have also seen stickers of a cow, chicken, and fish being used as well.

I made several ‘key’ cards for the caterer to give to the servers as a guide. he very much appreciated it!

We used colored ribbon to indicate the person’s choice. Our colors were purple, black, ivory, and silver. All of the place cards were purple paper with silver calligraphy. Black ribbon indicated a beer pairing, silver ribbon indicated a wine pairing, and ivory ribbon indicated no pairing.

Our escort cards double as favors, and will look fairly similar to this:

Except ours are full rectangles, in the size of business cards, they don’t have the indent w/ ribbon like the ones in the picture do. They are fully clear all the way through, and will be engraved with each person’s name in the center, our names on the bottom left, and our wedding date on the bottom right.

Our theme is cherry blossoms, so I’ll have different patterns of really nice cherry blossom papers cut to size, and we’ll adhere them to the back of each block. The paper will be printed / stamped with their table number and will be removable for after the wedding, but each pattern of paper will correlate to their menu option!

We are using colored ribbon to tie the name plate to the favor boxes. The color indicates meal choice (orange for chicken, yellow for salmon, cream for veggie, and red for kids)

Similar to the rhinestone/ribbon idea, I went to a wedding and the place cards were made out of different colored cardstock (in the couple’s colors: navy, kelly green, white) that apparently corresponded to the entree choices. It looked really nice on the display table.

I’ve had brides just initial on the card (F, C or B) except leave it to my Fiance to think that was a table letter! Undecided Nevertheless, all the weddings I’ve been to, the server comes around with a notepad and double-checks on the selection, rather than just relying on the placecard.
