Wedding Seating Boards – The Place Card Table Alternative

Wedding Seating Board - The Place Card Alternative

Last week we provided  a variety of creative wedding place card ideas.  This week we wanted to follow up with another seating option.  Many wedding couples are foregoing the traditional place card table for a seating board.  These eye-catching place card alternatives not only let guests know where to sit, they also add to the reception décor.  We’ve seen beautifully decorated chalk boards, antique window panes, fabric covered push pin boards, and elegant frames.  From simple writing to tags to corks and more – there are so many creative ways to incorporate your theme or colors on the boards.  You are only limited by your imagination.

Proper placement is key.  The board should be prominently placed during your cocktail hour so that guests can easily locate their seating assignments.  You don’t want to simply place it immediately outside the doors to your reception as this will cause a traffic jam.

When you book your wedding at The Clubhouse at Patriot Hills, our event planners can assist you with choosing the perfect seating board for your reception and ideal location to showcase it.

One of the first areas guests gravitate to as they enter your reception venue is the place cards.  Where will they be sitting? Who will they be sitting with? Everyone wants to know!  So, where better to introduce guests to your wedding theme, showcase your personality, or simply make a welcoming, statement than the place card table.

We have seen many different place card ideas over the years – elegant to whimsical to fun.  Below are some you might want to consider for your wedding.

Simple Elegance. A warm, inviting place card table with simple seating cards that coordinates with your centerpieces can set the mood for the evening.
