Two weeks before the wedding my mother and I sat down to plan out the seating arrangements. A process which apparently requires huge pieces of paper taped to the wall, countless sticky flags, markers, excel spreadsheets, and a lot of patience.
We made sure to call all parties involved in the wedding planning with questions about table companion compatibility and within a couple of hours we ended up with this
After the seating chart was finalized I got to work on the place cards. My wonderful friend/coworker gifted me with her left over place cards (she lost them and then found them after her wedding) which I promptly put in a safe place, moved that safe place to my desk at work so I wouldn’t forget them, and then forgot them. I wanted to get the place cards done so I turned to option number two, the matching set that came with our invitations. The only problem was that they were individually printed with a design and had to be hand-written. I started writing names and table numbers just to see how it would turn out and before I knew it I was done.
I resurrected my dinner selection stamps and got to stamping. I referred to my food choice spreadsheet and divided the place cards out into ‘meat’, ‘crab’, and ‘veggie’ piles.
The stamping took no time at all and turned out great.
The whole place card process took just about two hours and is completely done!
