Oh – I LOVE your idea!! Seriously, I don’t have any thing to add, because I’m just sitting here in total love… airplanes, airports, travel – drool!

I’m sure people will get it!!!

I love your creative idea, but I have to admit, I didn’t get the gist of your idea until 5. ORD, just because I didn’t recognize the first 4 airports. You and your Fiance may be well traveled but not all of your guests will. Maybe as a compromise, write the full airport name on their seating card/paper airplane? This way its easier for people to find and you are keeping with your travel/destination theme!

I just wanted to add… I would add in translations from airport code to the actual city, so people know where in the world/country they’re sitting! Lots of them wouldn’t recognize the codes, I’m sure. 

Again… so awesome!

First off let me say, i think your theme is WICKED CUTE! I love the idea of paper airplane seating cards. . also wicked cute! But i can see where your mom is coming from. . .most people would probably get it but there is always those "select few" who are on the slow side of things. Is there anyway you could use the name of the airport or just the name of the city instead of teh airport code?

Example: "Destination: Boston" OR "Destination: Logan"

Maybe as a compromise, you could word it "John Smith, Destination: Table SFO" just to add a bit of clarification.  But I can see how adding "table" takes away from the cool idea!

I think that’s an adorably awesome idea!  I guess it might confuse someone…but so would the traditional seating chart.

I think its great!! If I were a guest I would personally want to know the abbreviation’s real city name (becuase I don’t recognize them all). LOVE LOVE LOVE the paper airplane seating card idea!

Honestly I love the idea.  I think the abbreviations are ok.  I would maybe supplament the whole thing by adding a seating chart (of the traditional sort) maybe with the US as a background and pins in the destinations?

Good Luck!

I’m with jenny.j …. what about just adding SFO, San Fransisco in smaller font underneath for the few (very few) people who might be confused. Also just make sure you tell your bridal party, coordinator and/or the catering staff what they mean in case people ask them.  With 10 tables I am guessing you have about 100 guests … I would say 85 will get it right away and the other 15 will pick up on it within 2 minutes.

Very cute!

i totally had another idea for you if you had a map of the tables you could put the map of the airport instead of a circle on it with the letters, then it would be super obvious
