At one wedding I attended they had little hole punches that showed the meal type…. so if you selected chicken your place card had a little chicken punched in it, and vegetarian was a leaf. They were small, in the corner of the placecard.

I like that idea of the hole punches, if you don’t want a chicken punched in the place card you could so something relative to your wedding (flower, seashell, shape). Also you could think of colors of the ink used. Use your wedding colors, have each color be a different entree. I’m in the same boat…have not decided what to do.

We used color coding. Guests who requested steak had a white card and guests who ordered chicken had a purple. Here is a pic:

The hole punch is a great idea! Can you find novelty punches like those at any store?

The last wedding I went to they just put a colored dot in the corner of the card: Red= beef, Yellow = Chicken, Pink = Salmon

The hole punch idea is cute, but might be hard for the servers to see the guests entree choices.

My seating cards are starfish and sandollors with colored ribbon attached.  The ribbon color is the indicator to what the guests will be having for dinner (lavender ribbon-sea bass and beige ribbon-steak).

I had the artist in my family make me a jpeg of a cartoon animal/vegetable that represents the dish and I use the cartoon on the cards.
