Today, as more couples are looking to incorporate a color or theme into their wedding, the seating card dispaly is one of the first opportunities to give your guests their first impression of the reception that follows. Your seating card display can set the tone for the wedding by being elegant, whimsical or colorful.
Seating boards are becoming more popular. With a seating board, guests cards are either attached to the board or the names are displayed on the board in a particulare sequence (alphabetical or by table number). The guests look for their name and table number on the board and can see who else is sitting with them.
The board can be a simple frame with an enlarged copy of the guest list in alphabetical order or the board can be elaborate, incorporating the wedding’s theme. You can match the material of the board to your wedding colors and even match the paper to your invitation.The newest trend is to hang the seating cards from the branches of a chandelier trees. The cards are attached to ribbons which are draped on the tree branches. If you have many cards, you can divide the cards into multiple trees and then include a sign at the foot of tree to let guests know which letters are on each tree. Flowers can be added to the chandelier tree as well as crystals to complete the look.
A beautiful display will certainly make a memorable first impression and your guests will look forward to what is to come.
