Do you already have placecards figured out?  That would be a great way to use them, you can have each guests name and table written on them on the side without the information.  I like the bookmark idea too!

I think the bookmark idea is really cool!  3 x 5 is a bit big, but not that bad; I often use a postcard or something like that as a bookmark.  Maybe you could combine that idea with naangel55’s and attach the guests’ names and table numbers somehow?

do they have some blank space on them? they’d be a great guestbook alternative! (and you can file them away in a little box!)

I think the guesbook idea is a good one.  If you have access to a typewriter you might add a question or request for advice to each card for guests to complete.

My first thought was escort cards/placecards, but the bookmark idea is really cute, too. Love the theme!

i love the idea of making them a place card, you could even do both and make them placecards and laminate them for them to become a bookmark and put a really cutesy poem on them….

I really like the idea of using them as escort/place cards but also doubling them up as cool bookmarks, maybe with some ribbon or pressing a flower underneath lamination, that guests can keep as favors. If I got that at a wedding I would not be able to stop talking about it and would be soooo excited, I think that’s an awesome idea (though I am not normal either since I am also a perpetual grad student…but I still think I’d be super psyched). I actually also really like the idea of making a little card catalog bouquet, too, if you had some leftover cards in the end.

What if you made them excort cards? Put them in little boxes labled like, O-Q or A-H and make guests find their card organized by last name like we did in school before computer systems took over? I think that would be totally cute! You could stack the boxes on books to give them some height.

you could have them sticking out of a book pocket and put the guest name and table number on the outside of the pocket.  Too bad they didnt have the cards that use to go into the pockets on the back of the books — they would make great seating cards.
