@dv3849:  So our escort cards weren’t anything special, but I really liked our DIY seating chart.

ETA: It only cost us about $26 to do this. I just printed regular place cards and put them next to it so guests could “claim” a seat.

I’m partial to mine of course! Do you have a wedding theme that you can tie in?

Here are mine (too lazy to upload the pro pic, sorry! lol)

Some ideas I have seen around that I really like are

Acrylic place cards like these:

Or one of these Zazzle seating charts:

I’m doing a winter wedding, but they have a bunch of other themes.

@dv3849:  I think our cards will be pretty standard – I will print names on cardstock along with a design to match the invites and a dove.  The dove is only because a friend of ours keeps trying to get us to release doves at the end (NO!) or incorporated in someway so, well, there you go, Friend.  🙂  He even went so far as to research the best dove company. lol

But for table assignments, I’m printing it out on several sheets of regular 8.5×11 paper and framing them (so one will be A-D, another E-H, etc.) and mixing them in with framed engagement photos.  I kind of wanted to do wedding photos of parents and family instead but his parents are divorced and only his dad is remarried so that could turn out awkward…

I just need to see about getting boxes or something to go under the table cloth so I can vary the height of everything – along with using different sized frames of course.

I’m not sure if I’m going to do it yet, but I found these little chocolate filled liquor bottles that I’m considering using at the escort cards.

Attatch a cute little sign with name & table.. and it’s done!

we did pics of our guests.

i had my ceremony and reception at the same location.  i had a large screen/backdrop with our logos on it.  when the guests arrived, i had my sister take a picture of each couple or family together infront of the backdrop.  think celeb red carpet event idea.

right after the ceremony, while the guests were mingling at cocktail hour, my sister printed off all of the pics and put them in their individual holder.  the holders had the names and table numbers.  they were arranged on a table just as you walk into the dinner.  your escort card was easy to identify b/c you just had to look for your picture.

it was perfect and the guests loved it.  i had never seen it done before.
