Card Conundrum

My dream for our little wedding has always been about family getting together and just have a great time. I want the event to be as far away from formal as one can possibly get. So I suppose the whole “informality” theme, it begs the question, “Place cards? Yay or Nay?”

Remember this? I posted it when I was wondering about where everyone should sit during the ceremony.

It may work for the ceremony, but does it work for the reception meal as well? In one of the copious wedding websites I read, it said that people like to be told where to sit at events. I can see why, it might be confusing to just walk in and pick a seat.

I don’t want to say I am excited to add something to the already 7 page long “To Do” list, but I do love a good project! And the best part is the brain-storming idea part! I think the best thing about DIY place cards, is that they are simple. They have to be. Place cards are something you kind of need to do at the last-minute, after your guests have mailed in their R.S.V.P. cards. Super complicated DIY projects do not belong in your life a few weeks before your wedding!

Since there is a little bit of a butterfly theme wound throughout my flowers, I’m thinking about carrying that through the place cards! Anyone else have some super cute place cards ideas?
