place cards for 35 people

Recommended Posts

Hi - we have 29 guests, and we are going to have place cards. Even though it is a small wedding, we think that if people were not told where to sit they would just gravitate towards the people they already know. By using place cards we can sit members of his family with mine, and hopefully that will be enough encouragement for people to get to know each other.

We had 50 people and didn't do place cards. We didn't even designate a bridal party table. It worked out really well...people only sat for eating, the rest of the time they were up dancing and mingling.

Saved me some work!

I like the idea of place cards and my wonderful mother has offered to write them in calligraphy which is even better! I second the idea about how it's nice to mix up the group and we will be having a head table as well. The one thing I think we're not going to do are menu's...I don't think they are necessary. What are others doing on that front?

We have 40 ppl coming & are doing place cards. Like Marcia said, we want people from both sides to interact a little so forcing them to eat together should do the trick. wink.gif

I just want to avoid having one table of 12 crammed together of all his friends and another table of 4 with just mine (or something like that) so we felt like using place cards will help even it out.

Oh & we're not doing menus either.

I had 35 people at my wedding and I did place cards. Definitely didnt need to, but they also served as our favors and I liked them, so we did! :)

I think either way is fine. It's a small wedding so if you don't assign seats it's not going to be mass confusion or anything. On the other hand they do make a nice little favour and dress up the venue a bit, plus like others have said you can mix your guests together easily. I say do them if you want too, and don't stress about them if you don't.

 

ETA- maybe check out some place cards and holders online (I found mine on Etsy). If you fall in love with something go for it, and if they don't do anything for you or they seem like just an additional cost that you don't need then just forget about them.

I am doing them because both of our parents are divorced and hate eachother and probably eachothers families,... sooo I didn't want to take the chance of them not being as far from each other as possible!

I personally dislike the idea of placecards. I think if you are doing a several-day destination wedding, there will be plenty of opportunities for people to get to know each other.
