18 Truly Unique Seating Card Ideas
Make these one-of-a-kind seating cards for a memorable wedding.
If you come from a dramatic family — and, let's face it, all families are at least a little bit dramatic — then planning out the seating chart for your wedding can seem like a nightmare. While these 18 Truly Unique Seating Card Ideas won't necessarily make the family drama go away, they will put your mind at ease when it comes to place cards, giving you one less thing you have to worry about.
The first thing you have to decide when arranging a seating chart for your reception is whether you will be using place cards or escort cards. Place cards denote exactly where each guest is sitting, while escort cards simply tell everyone which table they're at, leaving them free to choose their own seat. While they serve similar functions, place cards are considered slightly more formal. However, should you choose the easier route with escort cards, that doesn't mean they have to look any less formal. The following ideas run the gamut of formality, but each is truly unlike anything you've seen before. No matter what kind of seating arrangement you choose, your big day will be a memorable one.
Uncommon Place Cards
If you choose to make place cards, this means laying out an entire seating arrangement, which can be quite a lot of planning. Sometimes, though, that's just the touch you want for your wedding, and you don't want your hard work to go unnoticed. Everyone is sure to take notice with these place card ideas.
Noteworthy Escort Cards
Maybe your family drama isn't as potent, or maybe you just have too many other things to check off your list than worrying about assigning each individual person to a seat. Either way, you want to make your DIY escort cards really stand out, and these will get the job done.
