#MakeItMonday – Place Cards

Place Cards (or Escort cards) are a cute essential detail to match your table plan and table number that is sometimes forgotten about once your guests have sat down. Depending on where you live in the world, place cards can either be sitting on the table at each guest’s place, or all sat together at the entrance to the wedding breakfast room, with the guest’s name and table number on so they can choose where they sit at a table. We here at Kiss The Bride want to make every little detail count, so we have found some inspirational ideas for place cards for you to create yourself at home.
