plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

I love seating charts at weddings.  They are more fun and interactive than escort cards.  Maybe it is because I just don’t like the look of the escort cards, but that’s not my point.

A local bride contracted Laura Hooper to have her create a seating chart for her rehearsal dinner.  However, she did it as a surprise to her soon-to-be-husband by making it a St. Louis Cardinal-themed seating chart.  Now, I love the Cardinals (a ton) and am not a huge fan of putting sports into a wedding, but I love that they used this for their rehearsal dinner.  He loved it and the guests loved it, too.  Couldn’t get any better than that!

  1. That’s a great seating chart! It’s nice to see something that’s not just the usual tables and chairs or list of guests.

  2. OMG. My fiancee would die with excitement if we had this. He is a Cardinals fan living in Astros territory and I think it is slowly killing him.

    @Sarah It’s a great idea – definitely outside of the box. And, they used it for their rehearsal dinner, which was a fun idea!

    My brother will be jealous he didn’t have that!
