If you have terrible handwriting and/or don’t want to make the place cards yourself you can always order from Minted.com, regular shipping will get you the cards in 1 week or you can pay for rush shipping and you’ll get them in three days. 

Or you can have the cards already about and print them out on your home computer or at staples if you have those kinds of skills.

We bought place cards and then printed the names on them on our home computer.  It was very easy.

I do calligraphy so I plan on making my own. I also have a wedding planner who will be placing the place cards for us, which is a big help for us since our ceremony and reception are in different locations

I will be doing my own. We sent out our invites last week and already have 20% of the responses back. I’ll probably do the first batch at the end of the month.

my friend/bm (a graphic designer) designed them and printed them ourselves.

we were supposed to have a photobooth who was a no show. but we displayed them in photobooth frames that people were supposed to use for their photos.  oh well.

it was still a pretty display.


if your wedding was a year ago, why are you still dwelling on this?

My bridesmaid is amazing at calligraphy, so she hand wrote out all of the cards more than a month in advance. We didn’t finalize the seating chart until a week before as well, so we handled this by having her write names but not table numbers yet. She also wrote names for the entire guest list at that point, because even though we had not had all the RSVP’s yet, it was easier for her to write them a month before hand and just toss the few that ended up not making it. On the night before the wedding, we reviewed the seating chart one last time and she just went through and wrote numbers on each card which took all of 10 minutes.
