  • poll: What do you think of my escort card idea?

    sounds good, I would use it to save my seat

    no, people can worry about saving their own seats

    nice idea, but I probably wouldn't use it

    I’ve only been to one wedding without a seating chart and really didn’t like the idea because of the risk of a group you come with not being able to sit together (we didn’t know it was a free for all or we would have planned to get there earlier).  We did luck out and find an open table that fit us all though, and it sounds like you are already set on no seating chart.

    With that said, I LOVE the chalkboards.  Looks like a TON of work if you are going to make them though.  I agree that a poem will help people know what they are for.  Be prepared though for people to use them to write secret messages to each other and make funny drawings!  At least that’s what our friends would do (especially with alcohol involved!!)  But, if you don’t mind that, it sounds like a lot of fun and like entertainment for the table between courses!

    I’m a table assignment person 100% but if not, I love this idea!

    To avoid having a bunch of mini-chalkboards leftover, you can buy chalkboard labels and affix them to cardstock or something. 

    Here’s an Etsy seller that has ’em: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BradensGrace

    although I think that you could also find them from traditional retailers (Michael’s, Staples, etc.)


    PS–Escort cards tell people which table they are at (they “escort” you to your table), but they do not dictate which seat you take at the table. Place cards tell you which seat is yours. Most weddings these days have escort cards, but place cards are more rare. Would your mom go for table assignments, without the actual seat assignments?
