Last time I talked about how we had to figure out how we were going to get our guests to their seats. Well, next step is trying to figure out how we are going to let our servers know exactly what each individual person ordered.

There are a ton of different options out there that I’ve stumbled across, but I’m not quite sure what route we’ll end up going.

The easiest route to go would be combining our favors to use as our escort cards. Example:

This option we would basically have our favors in boxes, wrapped with ribbon and somehow attach the guests name and table number on the box. The guest would pick up their favor, and take it with them to the table. NOW, because the guests are able to choose 3 different meal options, we would be able to change the ribbon color to depict their choice. Example: green ribbon for chicken, blue ribbon for beef, orange ribbon for vegetarian.

Another option would be to leave the favor boxes at the actual dinner tables and just use the escort card to depict the meal choice. Example:

We would keep it simple in using the popular tent style with the guests name and table number on the card, but in order to show the different meal choices, we could tie a different colored ribbon at the top of each card, or in the next example, we could also get different colored buttons, stickers, stamps, etc to put on a corner of the tent card.

Our options are pretty unlimited, so it makes it even that much harder in trying to figure out what works best for us.
