Escort Card Ideas

The ceremony is over, and it’s time to party! As we all mosey on to the reception, everyone has the same questions: Where do I sit? Who’s sitting with me? Where is my table? Is there champagne at my seat, or should I swing by the bar first?

Escort cards are the answer! You can go big and grand, or you can go small and simple. For the creative bride and groom, one fun option is to combine escort cards and wedding favors into one!

Do you and your beau love board games? Chess pieces and Scrabble letters can make memorable and adorable keepsakes for your guests.

Simple ornaments with guest names and table numbers would look decidedly un-Christmas-y if hung from a string of lights between two posts or from dowels on a peg board, but would also remind your guests of the fun they had at your wedding when they decorate their homes each winter.

Do you and your future spouse enjoy cooking together? Your guests would love watching these culinary herbs grow from beautiful seed packets, and you could use the different varieties of herbs to name your tables.

For the couple who loves to travel, consider using luggage tags or map-covered favor boxes filled with little treats.

Pro Tips:

• Make sure your reception hall and/or decorator are providing a table or some other place for you to display escort cards.
• Make sure your escort cards are in an obvious location near the entrance to your venue.
• Table numbers and/or names should be big enough to be seen from far away!
