“If I were” a place card name tag

Guest post by evewasinnocent

OBT member evewasinnocent is taking her mother's creative party place card idea and putting her own spin on it for her upcoming wedding. And she's not only giving us the whole scoop, but giving you permission to steal this idea…

At my college graduation party, my mom had the brilliant idea to create name tags with each person's name (obviously) and their relation to me; ie: “Jenny's Friend,” “Jenny's Aunt,” “Jenny's Mentor,” ect. My FH's mom liked it so much she did the same thing for his grad party a year later. And now we're doing it for the wedding too! Of course, I had to put my own spin on it:

These are going to be printed on Avery US labels #5895 which prints eight to a page. We'll also have straight pins on hand for people who don't want to stick it their clothes. So far, I've created thirty-five unique “If I were” statements. I think I'm going to shoot for fifty, but that may be a stretch. Than I'll start repeating. As long as no one sitting at the same table has the same question, it'll be fine.

I think it's better if none of the questions are too obscure. And you could just use the same question for everyone (maybe “what cartoon character would you be?”) but I wanted to create some talking points.

Anyway, feel free to steal at will. And blessings on you.

    • Awesome idea – but I was wondering the same. And also did you have lots of tags that said ‘friend of the bride and groom?’

  1. such a cool idea

    just wondering how do you work it for wording when you get down to the random + 1 guests like

    “I am the wife of the grooms work colleague”?

  2. In answer to two questions: yes, we have quite a few that say “Friend of the Bride and Groom”. I’m debating whether use that phrase for guests of guests whom we’ve never met though… I might just say “FirstName LastName’s Guest”.
