Whether you are planning a rustic wedding or a regal ballroom soirée, you undoubtedly want it to be the most memorable and fun day. To us, there are a few elements that make for an unforgettable wedding: one of which is Escort Cards. You may feel escort cards are quite pricey, but we honestly believe they're worth it because a fabulous escort cards concept can make for a great experience for your guests. Your escort cards are one of the first things your friends and family will see when they arrive at your reception, and help set the mood for the rest of the evening. To ensure your guests make it to their arranged seats, we've put together some of our favourite escort card ideas for different types of weddings. Use these ideas as inspiration to create your own!
Consider hanging your escort cards from a beautiful tree outside using elegant pastel ribbons, or peg them to twine wrapped around a tree trunk.
Lay your escort cards on a bed of flowers, or make a statement escort card table boasting a chic statement floral arrangement.
This escort card display is quite a unique modern architectural sculpture, with the different tables represented by a different colour.
Use fresh produce such as apples as inspiration and attach leaf-shaped escort cards to their stalks. Alternatively you could display pretty escort cards printed onto kraft paper in decorative wooden crates.
Seashells are the perfect accent to any beach wedding, and make for beautiful keepsakes and escort cards for your guests.
A dreamy tree of escort cards or a wall of pretty paper lanterns are sure to wow your guests, and will definitely be a talking point for your friends and family as they search for their names.
Whether you're hosting a destination wedding, or are a well travelled couple, a beautiful world map could be the perfect answer for your escort cards display.
Depending on the time of year, you may wish to choose something seasonal for your escort cards. As an example, you could use honey sticks for the escort cards, and then have mini pots of honey as favours at each place setting. Or if you're hosting a wedding around Christmas, you could present your escort cards as baubles.
Another fun, interactive escort card idea could have your guests taking polaroids, which double up as the perfect keepsake for your wedding album.
FOR THE CEREMONY
Mix it up and get your guests to find their escort cards before your ceremony - give them little bells which they can chime during your recessional as husband and wife, or ask your friends and family to light candles, with their names written on the cuffs, in the church.
FOR THE RECEPTION
Keep your guests refreshed during your pre-reception drinks by serving pink lemonade with guests' names tied to the bottles, or serve mini champagne bottles which your friends and family can take to their seats with them ready to pop and enjoy during the toasts.
SYMBOLIC OF YOUR LOVE
You may love the idea of symbolising your love for each other through a key to your heart, or through small pot plants which your guests could plant at home to embody the growth of your love.
