My mom & I purchased these Heart Place Card Holders for the wedding. We really liked how simple they were, that the guests could take them home and actually reuse them, we also really liked that we had never seen them used at a wedding before.
Designed in a sleek modern style, these shiny-finish chrome heart place card holders will also make a cheerful addition to your guests’ homes as a decorative photo or note holder.
Our problem now is that we don’t know how to inform guests that they can take them home.
My mom sugested that we could have the place cards (with the guest name and table number) layed out on a table at the entrance of the reception and put the hearts at each place setting on the table, and just have people put their card in the holder themselves. My concern was people wouldn’t know to put the card there.
I thought we could maybe put the place cards in the hearts and have them on the entrance table and either have a framed explanation on the table letting guests know that they can keep the hearts or have something typed/printed up on the back of each place card letting the guests know.
What do you think would be the best way to make sure guests know to take these home? (I really don’t want to end up with a bunch of these left over).

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.
