Escort Cards!

Escort cards are a great way to add your personal touch. You can do almost anything you can think of. Here are some great ideas and inspiration.

"Candles and calligraphy made the escort card display extra elegant. Rose petals under the cards matched the color of the writing."

"Jenifer bought round stickers, printed guests’ names on each one and placed them on envelopes containing the table assignment inside. Vintage enamel flower pins made the display eye-catching."

"The couple used the same tan paper from the invitations and made rectangular cutouts for the escort cards. They decorated them with a custom heart monogram designed by the bride and then hung the cards around a big oak tree with twine and clothespins for a natural look."

"To honor Corey’s music-industry job, the couple named their tables after some of their favorite musicians. The escort cards were printed to look like concert tickets."

"Small Greek pitchers of olive oil doubled as the favors and the escort cards. Erin and Andy personalized each pitcher with a blue, geometric patterned label with their names and wedding date stamped on them."

"Becci and Jimmy had a tough time deciding on escort cards that fit their lighthearted wedding theme. Finally, while scouring on the Internet, Becci found a photo of Jones Soda bottles with the escort cards tied to them and fell in love with the idea. The soda doubled as an extra favor for guests."

"Rectangular escort cards hung by ribbon from two Manzanita trees decorated with orchids."

"Robin and her mom found these vintage-looking picture frames at Michaels and decided to turn them into cardholders, which doubled as favors for the guests."

"Escort cards doubled as an edible treat and were stacked on top of wrapped gift boxes to mimic the shape of the actual wedding cake."

"The bride’s father, an art teacher, hand-sewed the place cards in a rainbow of colors. After doing all of the calligraphy, he added a tiny butterfly to each one. The butterfly details were another way to honor the bride’s late grandmother, who had always felt a special connection to them."
