destination seating cards in a bottle

Are you planning a destination wedding or beach theme wedding? This is a great way to do your reception seating cards.  You can either hand-write these or grab a nice writing font and print them out. Guest will love these little “message in a bottle” cards.

Materials Needed:

  • miniature cork-topped vials
  • paper
  • printer
  • sand
  • glass bowl/dish
  • sea shells


  1. First decide if you are going to hand-write or print your seating cards.  If you decide to print you will need to use a full size sheet of paper and map out your cards in sizes of  2″ x 3″ to fit into the miniature vials.  If you are hand-writing, cut your paper into 2″ x 3″ sizes of paper.
  2. Write or print names and table numbers.
  3. Roll up the paper and slide it into the bottle with name/table number facing out.
  4. Fill glass dish with sand, arrange the bottles and add small shells
  5. For large events, use several dishes and organize by letter
