I have to have a seating chart for the reception. It is a sit down dinner. I was going to do a large poster and get a frame….but that is like $150. I dont like place cards. What else can I do? I want to keep it all under $80.

For DD #1, we had it printed at Kinko’s for less than 10.00. Went to Michael’s with one of their 40% off coupons and bought a frame they could use afterwards for a wedding photo, along with a mat. That was about 25ish dollars. Rented an easel from a place in town that rents all kinds of wedding stuff for 8.00. Done.
Hope that helps.

It might be cheaper to do escort cards/place cards. Those little folding cards are pretty inexpensive, and people just look at the back to see where to sit. As long as you have a table to set them up on, easy!
This is a decent pinterest board of ideas: http://pinterest.com/toptableplanner/mirror-and-frame-wedding-seating-plans/

@Elky: I love the idea of the magnetic board but that would be too modern for my reception. I was thinking of getting a foam board but I don’t want it to look too cheap.
@hermom: I have heard of people getting Kinkos to print designs out but I am so not creative when it comes to that stuff!
@jmarvellous: I really like that pinterest board. I have actually looked everywhere for a collage picture frame that has like 20 pictures holders. No luck so far. I have also never seen them on mirrors….I really like that! My parents have a huge mirror that I might be able to use. Then I would just have to find mirror paint or stickons!
What else!!! 🙂 Yall are so helpful!

@Elky: i love this idea too. exactly what i was thinking.
@jesssamesssa: if you are doing favours, you can incorporate the escort cards with them like this. they work as double duty and everything is utilized.
i like edible favours for example.

We’re putting the names/table on whatever favor we’re giving out. Maybe mason jars with smore’s or something. You could possibly just do tags on favors.

@jesssamesssa: You don’t have to be creative, I’m sure not! I used a Word document, gave it a header for their names and then used 3 columns to list the guests alphabetically. that’s it.
