- Wedding: April 2011
I have 2 great ideas (I’ll do 1 per post) that I would like to do at my wedding, but would like to find out more info on where you know you can get this done, have you seen it before (have u done this or plan to) and suggestions on how to DIY…mind you, I really don’t have much skill as a DIYer.
I was recently at a wedding where there were a lot of guests (about 460), I don’t have THAT many guest, but regardless, I want to do this. Instead of doing individual placement cards for each, they have a huge(3 foot by 2 and half foot) posters (2), framed, with names alphabetically, organized, with a list of all guests with their table number next to the names displayed.
I thought the idea was genius. It was very nice. It went in alphabetical order by last name, and for example, there was a silver, much bigger, script, and bolded “A” to the left of all the “A” last names (which were written in black), then, next to each name was the # of the table the person (or couple) was seated at…the numbers were color coded. All table number fives were red..and so on. **This was not hand written, it was typed out**
Then there was a space between all the “As” and then under it, there was the same looking “B”…. and it was all in columns, which made it very easy and organized to read/understand. So the As were in the top left corner, and they made sure that NO certain letter last names started at the bottom of one column, and ended at the top of the next column. It was on nice paper, with a subtle pattern, like a marble look, and was covered with a glass framed and placed on a stand.
Any one know a place you can get this done, perhaps a site online, or a computer program you suggest to get in order to do this… as I do not know how I would print it using regular sized paper? Please let me know.
