While planning your Orlando wedding, you’ll find that the right stationery and signage can keep the night going smoothly, making sure everyone knows what is happening next, where they should be and who is eating what!
Seating charts are an important element in making a smooth transition into your reception. They can also be a great way to elevate your overall wedding decor, highlight your theme and even offer a way to get creative and let your wedding favors dub as an escort card.
What’s the difference between a place card, an escort card and a seating chart? Great question.
To put it simply, an escort card is offered to the individual guest listing their name and table number. A place card is waiting at the guest’s seat letting them know where to sit, and often indicates to the servers what the guest’s food preference is if you’re serving a plated meal. A seating chart is similar to an escort card, but all the info is listed on one large chart, and sometimes on a unique and beautiful display.
And, unique seating chart displays have become more and more common at weddings, and WE ARE HERE FOR IT!
We’ve rounded up some really unique displays put together by Orlando Wedding Vendors, and we hope this list inspires you to get creative and let your personality shine in the details of your Orlando wedding!
1. Take A Treat & Find Your Seat
Adding a treat to your escort cards is the perfect way to keep your seating chart sweet and simple.
We love the idea of including something sweet that your guests can take with them as they find their way to their dinner table and take home to enjoy later. Functional AND delicious!

2. The Grass is Totally Greener over Here!
We absolutely love a gorgeous greenery wall, and this lucite seating chart display tops it off perfectly.
Your seating chart doesn’t have to be boring. If you’re looking for ways to make an impact with your decor, your seating chart is a great way to elevate the overall theme and aesthetic by incorporating a large statement piece!
3. Wherever you are is home.
Being unique and letting your personality shine through your decor is one of the best ways to have fun during the wedding planning process. Don’t second guess yourself. When you have a fabulous idea, just run with it!
We love the usage of calligraphy on these glass lanterns in this seating chart display. A beautiful idea that just works!
4. You look like you need a margarita!
Seating charts are a fun way to get playful with your decor. You can use the seating chart as an opportunity to offer guests a welcome drink or to display a unique wedding favor. I mean, come on – who doesn’t love a personalized margarita upon entry to an event?!
We also really love that these “adult juice boxes” are reusable, giving your guests a fun wedding favor to take home and remember the day on their next trip to the beach or boat outing!

5. Will You Accept This Rose?
We LOVE personal touches like this seating chart’s nod to the bachelor rose ceremonies. Bringing elements of your everyday life into your wedding is such a fun way to let your personality shine and give your guests a hint into your relationship.
This statement wall is not only beautiful, but the individual vases also include every guest’s name and table number. As the guests bring the roses back to their seats, the florals look gorgeous adorning the place settings as well.

6. Our Favorite Love Story
On your wedding day, feel free to get personal and add those special touches to the details.
This seating chart is a gorgeous hand-painted work of art that includes bits and pieces of the couple’s story throughout. Each number has a different memory or meaning that bring you along on the journey of their love story.
7. I’m Coconuts About You!
We love when couples find ways to create fluidity in their day and expand their creativity with multi-use items — like a seating chart that dubs as a beautiful work of art. Or, let’s be real, a personal favorite might just be the seating charts that offer a tasty treat or a cocktail!
Notice the monochromatic lettering along the far left side of this display allowing guests to easily find their names and the simple tags hanging from the straws guiding guests to their seats.
