personally i don’t like the idea of filling out all those little cards Smile. i’m going with a vintage hollywood glam “theme” for my wedding and i’m going to work with my brother-in-law (who’s a graphic designer) to design movie posters (i.e. breakfast at tiffany’s) and instead of the real cast/movie info, it’ll be the people at that table. i want to print them out on 12×17 or larger and frame them at the entrance to the reception area. i hope this rambling made some sense (it’s been a very long day).

We’re planning to use individual cards. The posters create traffic jams and are often printed very small to fit the poster. Plus if anyone gets sidetracked on the way to their table, they have to go back and find out again where it is rather than just looking at the card or whatever is in their hand with the information.

I was thinking of designing one and having it printed at Kinkos.  They can mount it on poster foam board stuff.  I was hoping to display it on a rented easel.  If it isn’t too expensive you could do two posters to lessen the traffic jam.

We are using the individual cards. We are using escort cards to show table numbers.

I agree that I like the idea of a huge board but it may be too crowded/traffic jam situation

We’re doing the poster and are also having it printed at Kinko’s. I bought a 16×20 frame at Target for $5.99, which I think is cheaper than mounting it.

Spaniel – Are you putting the frame on a table? How is it going to be held up?

We’re using a standing easel provided by the venue.

we are framing ours in a big, gaudy, gold frame, to go with our vintage/romance theme.  It will list just the guests table number!  At the table, we are having a ferrero rocher on each plate with the guests name.

We’re sort of doing both.  We’ll have two posters, one right outside the venue near where the cocktail hour is happening and one inside the lobby, so hopefully that will cut down on the traffic jam. 

Then on each table will be a place card with the person’s name on it.  Our caterer requested the cards so that their staff knows what meal to serve, so in addition to the name I am attaching a paper flower that corresponds to the meal choice – pink = beef, yellow = chicken, etc.  The flowers coordinate with our centerpiece flower flowers.
