plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

As much as I love a cute escort card table, I also love the idea of a seating chart for your wedding guests, like this one featured recently on 100 Layer Cake.

100 Layer Cake

There have been a lot of creative ideas featured recently on a lot of wedding blogs out there, with different variations.  This particular one would probably work best with a smaller guest list, so not everyone was crowding around it.  BUT, I guess at that point it doesn’t matter, seeing as you would have guests crowding around a table to find their name on a card.

Anyhoo, I think this is a fun and alternative way to show your guests where they will be seated, and this way you don’t have to print out a ton of little table-tended cards!

How will you be seating your guests?  Or can your guests choose their table?


  1. The fiancee has this brilliant plan to assign everyone a seat, but I don’t think he understands that it will involve effort. I think he just thinks that those sorts of things magically happen.

  2. Have you seen this blog post? I don’t know that it would work for a large wedding unless you had a master board, but I still think they’re adorable. 🙂

    @Jennelle I saw something similar on some other posts. I love those little tags you can put on the glassware!

  4. Very cute! We did placecards in all shades of pink scrapbook paper styles!
