    It might be hard dependin on what women are wearing. I am large chested and often feel that nametags are just drawing peoples eyes to my boobs and also if I had bought a nice dress to wear I would not feel great about sticking a pin in it.

    Yeah, i agree with boohemianbailie, I feel like it’s an excuse to stare at my boobs! haha. Makes me not so comfortable when someone is trying ot read it. And often i wear a strapless dress and a nametag doesn’t work well. And with a nice dress? No thanks–i don’t want a snag!

    I’m coming out of hiding to say a big NO to this one. I wouldn’t wear it. I’d feel more awkward wearing a nametag around than I would introducing myself to someone and saying how I know the bride/groom.

    Nope. I never even wear the stick on ones at CE courses or meetings,so I definitely wouldn’t wear it. Sorry.

    Sorry, I would hate to wear one!! Its a wedding, not a conference or seminar.

    Hi Kitty – nice to see you around!

    I really dislike name tags – my name is not phonetic and people just end up pronouncing my name wrong all night. I would way rather introduce my self and then they will know how to say it (they don’t need to know how to spell it).

    Oh man, your idea is so cute and I wish I could tell you that I would wear one!  But, like others have said, name tags make me kind of uncomfortable.  Sorry!

    i agree with the others… i wouldn’t want to wear one and besides..not knowing who someone is will spark up conversation anyway. “Hi i’m so and so… blah blah blah”

    also, whenever i’m somewhere and nametags are involved i still have to ask for their names because, #1 i think its polite, #2 i can’t read it anyway (size is like 13 pt type, too small to read in that context) #3 Womens hair covers it up..i know mine would.

    on the flip side i appreciate your thoughtfulness and you are thinking of everything, kudos!

    I would say No on this one. I know what you’re saying but as a person that regularly has to attend conference and mixers I hate name tags! Especially ones that will poke holes in to my suit or those sticky ones that keep peeling off.

    ha i think i’m the only one but i considered name tags as an idea too! i really like the idea because I’m terrible with names and always forget, and buttons are so fun! but mr. sew said no so that was that. 😛

    Even if I didn’t generally skip name tags, I wouldn’t want to poke holes or stick a sticker onto my nice clothing.  If you’re having a larger pre-wedding gathering (family picnic/rehearsal dinner/something else) it could be a great idea for something less formal.
