In all the excitement of greeting your guests and getting ready for dinner to be served, it can be easy to to forget to save yourself a seat! Create clever signs to display on the backs of your chairs to let everyone know where the couple of the hour can be found, and to give your seat an extra-special touch. Label your chairs with your names, initials, or even "Mr." and "Mrs." or "Bride" and "Groom." We've seen this trend gain momentum in the last few years, and we love how creative couples have become!

See how 15 real couples labeled their chairs, using flowers, burlap, wood, and even horseback riding award ribbons. Hint: this makes a great DIY project for you and your fiancé(e)! Get inspired by the adorable bride and groom signs in the photos below.
