Are you tired of the same ole' standard table seating cards? I know I am! I’ve rounded up some new, fresh and “not so boring” ideas for you courtesy of Martha Stewart. Thank-you Martha! Seating Cards in a bottle – This idea is not only clever, it is inexpensive and ideal for a beach-destination wedding.

Shell Seating-Card Holders - Another perfect idea for a wedding by the ocean, these scallop shells clasp table designations as if bearing treasures from the sea. Guests pull out their cards to discover their table numbers, which are hidden behind the shells.

I JUST LOVE THIS IDEA! Add a playful & fun twist to your guests' tables and make a Cootie Catcher (fortune teller game) as your place cards. This is a great Ice-breaker for your guests sitting on the same table.

And this gets my vote for the most outgoing table cards - table cards featuring a fun photo of the bride and groom. You can use different poses for each number. They're great for an informal wedding, rehearsal dinner, or shower.
