What I love most about place cards vs. escort cards is that guests often take them home as a memento from your wedding. Since place cards only list the guest's name and no table information, guests often re-use them at home or even in their office at work. Unique place cards like marble tile place cards, acrylic place cards and tassel place cards are beautiful options for stylish designs your guests will love.

If you're looking for a last minute place card idea or an easy DIY place card idea, be sure to consider place card download templates or printable place cards. Purchasing a printable place card design on Etsy is easy and fast! Then simply edit your design for your guests' names and print them at home or at your local printer for a fast turn around! 

This Garter Girl Loves post is filled with unique wedding place card ideas and inspiring designs, all sourced from Etsy.

What Are Wedding Place Cards?

Place cards are typically set at each individual seat to designate where each guest will sit. They are considered a more formal experience since it allows the bride and groom to select not only the table for each guest but also the exact seat.

What Is The Difference Between an Escort Card and a Place Card?

Escort cards are typically placed at a communal table setting at the entrance to a reception. They include the guest's name and a designation to which table they are assigned to sit. Guests take their escort card, find their table and then choose their own seat at the table. 
 
Since place cards are already set with the place setting, weddings using place cards often use a seating chart at the entrance to the reception. The seating chart is a list where the guests can find their name and the table they are assigned to.  Once they arrive to their table, they will find their place card to know which seat is theirs.
