Wedding Place Cards

Wedding place cards let their guests know where they should be seated. They also help the caterer know how many tables need to be set. Using place cards will allow you to seat certain groups together (relatives, business associates, singles, teenagers). This will make your guests feel more comfortable.

Place cards are put in alphabetical order on a table at the entrance to the reception. The tables are numbered so guests can find their tables.

A folded card or matchbook will list both of your names on the first line and the wedding date on the second line. On the third line you will handwrite the guests’ names. The fourth line is for the table number.
