Untraditional seating cards

Wouldn’t it be kind of fun to use a rolodex for your seating cards instead of the traditional tented ones? These beautiful cards from Lovely Design would be perfect! Just type or handwrite the names and tables directly onto the cards, and let people search away!

    What a clever idea. You could even adapt it to suit different types of cards. Thanks for the idea!

  2. Eric Says:

    I remember one wedding I did where the couple put together large boards with library slips in little manilla envelopes (like school library check out cards).

    The guests would find their name, and pull out the card which had the name of the table on it: classics, romance, poetry, sci-fi, and so on.

  3. People St.Clair Says:

    what a cool idea. you could even use the different cards to code each guest menu selection too! such great ideas.

  4. Blue Orchid Designs Says:

    love it! these would also tie in really well for school fundraising galas or the other million events that schools always have. :)

    I love love love all these ideas… one of my FAVORITE weddings is from Paper + Cup oh-so-many issues ago in Martha… (the school theme)… I’ll have to store this post in my files…

    i love this rolodex! i’ve been trying to get my hands on one for ages, but i think they’re very back ordered since the designer is a new mom. phooey! but great idea nonetheless.

  7. Life Design Event Planning Says:

    This has to be one of the more cleaver ideas I have seen in a while. The only problem I would see with it is all your guests piling in at once to get their card. Thoughts anyone?

  8. Vane Says:

    i guess one way you could keep everyone from crowding around is assign someone to find everyone’s card…. any other ideas?

    meladoriem – i actually have the dark walnut rolodex and LOVE LOVE it! of course, i’m a complete dork and refuse to staple or write onto the cards because they’re too pretty, so i have business cards just sitting in front of them.

    is there a self-help group i should be joining for this??

    I adore this idea — maybe because I have this very rolodex from Lovely Designs? ;o) It sits on my desk here at work. I love seeing it pop up online every once in awhile. It was featured AGES ago in an issue of Real Simple. Keep checking back — her products are frequently re-stocked (I had to wait for mine)

    i think this is adorable as well. as with most uber creative, cute ideas…it may only work very well with small groups. thus, the bunching up and 200 people try to read from one rolodex. or buy more! yeah!

  12. Nicole B. Says:

    I love this idea! I will definitely have to remember this for the future!
