Holy cow, 11 months out and you have place cards and table names done!? You are my hero! I think that the table name holders are very whimsical, but the table names look more modern so the themes clash a bit. I would almost say, shorten the table name holders and use those for place card holders because they match the place cards better. Does that make any sense?

I think everything you made is super cute (and I love the idea of painting the clips to add more color!) and can definitely be made to work!

I love the escort cards – don’t change a thing! I really love the paper part of the table numbers but the stand looks a bit flimsy. And I would agree that they might fall over. What sort of centerpieces are you having? That could make a difference in what you want to do for the numbers.

I DIYed my table sign holders too. I made them out of wine corks.  Each one is just 3 corks rubber banded together.  The photo shows the rubber band, but for the final product I covered the band with ribbon.  I saw it on Etsy, and figured I could do it myself.  On Etsy she used 4 corks, but Fiance preferred 3.  You could also hot glue the corks together.  The rubber bands allow you to adjust them, and we’re doing a pseudo-DW so I don’t want to have to also pack my glue gun in case a cork falls off in transit (so the rubber bands are safer).

Thanks!  I like the idea of incorporating personal things, and these corks are from wine we’ve shared together.  I previously saw escort card holders that were 3 corks on their side, stacked into a triangle, with a slit cut in the top cork to hold the card.  I tried that, but those corks are HARD, and I didn’t want to lose a finger.  We’re making one for each table, and then Fiance and I will have them to mark our seats (we don’t have assigned seats, just assigned tables, and our “head table” is round, so we want to make sure we get the correct seats (also for the rehearsal, when there are no assigned tables or anything).  For the rehearsal, our signs say Bride and Groom, for the wedding they say FI’s Wife and EastMeetsBarn’s Husband ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve seen place cards out of a cork. They cut a slit down the side and stick the card in it. May have to cut the bottom a little so it will stand and not roll. Like this

And here is another girls DIY table numbers. Not that u want a rock, but u didn’t say what decor you have. May be able to find something that will go.
