I think placing the cards in the holders and printing something on the cards, or just making an announcement.

I don’t know that people will necessarily turn the card over to look at the back…so maybe an explanation on the entrance table with the cards…and/or a person stationed there assisting guests and making sure they know?

Regardless of the use they may have in the reception, I’d say just attach a little tag to the bottom that says thanks for being with us, or something along the sort. 


In hispnic tradition favors have a little ribbon that says pretty much: “This is a favor of Our Wedding” That would make it easier! hahaha!!

I would say put a framed announcement on the place card table (with each place card in the heart) and have your DJ make a couple announcements through the night. I don’t think many people will turn their place card around to read the back.

I went to a wedding where the placecard holders were also the favours, and the father of the bride announced to everyone near the end of the night that we could take them home (I think maybe while he was thanking everyone for coming). It was a great surprise because I had been admiring mine all evening! I also like the idea of tying a little tag around them.

I agree that the place cards should already be attached to the holders and an announcement sounds like the way to go!

I would do a little sign on the table if you are using them as escort cards.

“From our hearts to yours-please keep this heart as a reminder of this day”

I agree that you should put the escort cards on your heart favors from the start. A sign on the escort card table saying they’re theirs to keep sounds like the least disruptive way to get the point accross.
