We’re putting people’s names on the front with a mark that will note their entree choice, and then when you flip it open, it’ll list their table name — promise to blog about this after the wedding!

@vintage2010 – Haha! I laughed when you said “here in Houston”….I thought it was just Mexicans that didn’t do the whole assigned seating thing. Curious to see what people post. 🙂 Not sure if we are assigning seats yet or just tables.

We put the guests name, table name and dinner selection on the cards and set them by the door. We used them as a way to show people which table they were sitting at. If you are not doing assigned seating and still want to make them, letting people use them as a “seat holder” is a great idea!

traditionally, you have escort cards with their names and the table number they take it and go to that table so they can find their seating


in england, they have seating charts you find your name, there are cards on the table for specific seating

Almost every wedding I’ve been to here in Houston (and in other cities–Austin, San Antonio, San Francisco) we’ve had assigned tables, but not necessarily assigned seats at the table.  I’m planning on doing the same thing.

At one wedding I attended in San Antonio, the bride was so formal as to have the escort cards in envelopes.  Of course, we were in beaded gowns for that wedding.
