Do you put people's full names on the placecards or just their first names...? What about their titles? Also, what do you put for Bride, Groom, MOG, MOB, BM, Best Man etc... e.g. do you put their name and role or just their role or just their name...? unsure.gif

Iv had title from some weddings and some without and some with the last name and I dont know how they knew it?! without the title if that makes sense.
I think iv seen placecards in WI which say Bride and then their name but I think its a bit much to right out on a placecard fully... Mother of the Groom Jean, for ease I think I will right just first names and hopefully not get too many with the same name! oh but thinking about it their last name wil be on the table plan x

I was having this discussion with my Mum earlier. I want to just have first names on them and full names on the table plan. I don't want it to be too formal.

I done a thread like this a month or so ago I was also unsure. Basically you can do what ever you feel comfortable with. I decided to do first names only (luckly we don't have anyone with the same names). For the top table I had Bride, Groom, Mother of the Bride ect... I thought your only these tittles once in your life (unless your lucky to be a BM again ect...) so its nice to be called the Best Man ect...
I have also made Wine charms for everyone, but the top table I found these, http://www.charmsupp...roducts_id=1054 so they go with the tittles too.

You can do what ever you want. we make printed name cards and table plans, most people seem to have ful names on the table layout and just first names on the names cards.
With the top table some people have bride and groom, mother of the bride etc but some like to put Mr and Mrs ??? as it will be the first time they sit down to their new name.

it's up to you, whatever you want.
