Silvertone Wedding Two Hearts Bell Place Card Holders
We bought 18 dozen bell place card holders with plenty of time if any did not meet our expectations when a couple dozen did not Oriental Trading quickly shipped out a replacement for those needed. They are tested and ready for use now. Good Value for the holders. I would order them again.

These will work perfectly to hold cards on the buffet table stating what the dish is. I may also use them to hold the table numbers - my centerpiece is low and do not want to use a tall table number holder.

I read the reviews & was a little hesitant due to people saying they had issues w/not hearing the bells, the rust inside the bells, the inside falling out and ribbons being and issue. I decided to try them knowing OTC is good about returns if something isn't satisfactory. I ordered 7dz for my wedding coming up Nov 2012. I personally checked each one and not only can I hear them ring loud and clear but I was able to get each one open enough to slide in the place card. I did notice some rust in quite a few of them but unless someone's looking inside the bell, they won't see it. The outside's beautful and I would highly recommend this product.

I ordered 14 dozen of these little bells for my wedding reception to use as placecard holders/favors. They are cute and elegant. They are small... the bell itself is perhaps slightly larger than a thimble. I didn't have a problem with any of the two heart handles being stuck together, so putting place cards in shouldn't be an issue. As mentioned in other reviews, the ribbon is bent and rumpled, and I will replace it with ribbon in my wedding colors. You should definitely check the finish and handle on all of your bells when you receive them so OTC can send you replacements for any damaged ones. Some of the clappers will fall out, but they are easy to put back in. The biggest problem we had was with the two heart handles; we found about 2 dozen that had a loose or broken handle. The finish was good on most of the bells, only a few had rough surfaces. I would definitely recommend these to anyone, especially if you can't spend much money on favors. The quality is about what you would expect for something you get for 50 cents. The bells are actually louder than I thought they would be. They may be harder to hear individually once music is playing and people are talking, but if people join in, they shouldn't be hard to hear. I especially liked these because we are using a two hearts theme at our reception. It's also nice that you can use them as picture, recipe, or card holders, or for anything else you might think of.

I was really excited to have found affordable bell name card holders, but when I received them, I was less then pleased. All of them were scratched up with paint missing all over the place. I couldn't possibly use them, so because of their poor quality, I returned them. Very disappointing.

The bells are very cute, but when you ring them you can not really hear them. When i try to put a card in the holder part i could not it seem that it was sealed closed. Not sure if they were all like that, but i did check out a few of them.
I call oriental trading and told i was not happy with them, the staff was great about it and also e-mail me a return label.

Beautiful bells with a lovely ring!
I'm using these place card holders with matching ribbon and cards. These are good quality with a nice weight and ring to them.

Good so far
I bought these for my upcoming wedding in October of this year. They arrived last week and should work perfectly for place card holders. The ribbons were flat and very hard to reshape, so I will be replacing them with ribbons in my wedding color.
