To have a seating chart or to not have a seating chart? This seems to be one question that couples have the hardest time in answering. On one hand, you allow your guests to sit where they want and then on the other you may have guests that do not know where to sit because they do not know anyone. We don’t have an answer for you but we may have a way of making your decision a little bit easier.
Escort cards are such a great way to add a last touch of your personality to your wedding. It allows you to add a subtle “wow” factor as your guests are entering the reception hall. You can match them to your color or theme or both or even have it be your favor, this is one more chance for you to be creative. If you and your fiance love wine consider using wine corks, if you are having a more intimate ceremony think of using tea candles with their names on the sides. The options are endless when it comes what you can use for these fabulous little name cards. If you love the idea of escort cards but are struggling with creating a seating chart, consider seating people together who have similar interests or seating those who may not know each other but at least have heard of others at the table. Good luck with your seating charts and enjoying creating your unique escort cards!
