    Both are so unique & look great! Great ideas!

    I saw these place cards made of metal from Etsy, and they're reasonably priced based on some other paper ones I've seen. I thought that they would be a cool way to tell people how to get to their seats, but I didn't want to overdo it with the placecards and the seating chart. H..

      I have 100+ people coming so would you suggest doing the seating chart and place cards on a table?? Maybe i can get all of my place cards free from vista print. Finding deals on all of these things is going to be a fun task

        With that many people I would 100% do a table with place cards on it!! Otherwise people are going to be walkig around fo 20 minutes trying to find their seats!! We are having about 50 people so I am planning on having the place cards at their place setting when they arrive!!

          For the AHR we will have about 225 ppl. I was going to have my dad make me a sandbox to put everyone name in prob attached to a starfish.

           

          DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE I CAN FIND STARFISH OR SAND DOLLARS IN BULK AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE?

           

          The cards will say there name and table number.

           

          ARE YOU DOING ASSIGNED SEATING OR SIMPLY ASSIGNED TABLE NUMBERS?

            If there are only 32 people, maybe you can nix the place cards and add that to your budget for OOT bags or favors? :)

              I had 32 people too, I just did place cards :)  It worked out perfectly and I could switch it up at the last minute.

                    I ordered some picture frames for our place cards.  They have a beach theme to them and also double as a party favor as well.  I figure they can use them later to place pictures of their trip.  We have some guests who do not get along with one another so I need to do a seating chart so that they don't end up at the same table.

                      Sorry.  My post did not appear.  I ordered picture frame place card holders.  They have a beach theme look to them and I figure that they can also double as a favor where guests can place pictures from their trip after they get home.  We have some guests who do not get along well so we need to have assigned seats.
