One way to add a custom touch to your wedding is to create unique escort cards for your guests. These days, many couples are straying from the traditional escort cards and are opting for something a bit more creative. For those of you who are looking for a special touch, there are lots of great ideas out there!
Your wedding theme should serve as the starting point for determining which escort card style to use. If you are having an outdoor reception, you might want to consider using flat stones to display your guest’s names and/or table numbers. Grass or moss could be used to create a creative display for your stones. For a beach wedding, you could create place cards from shells by cutting a slit in the back to support the place card. Sand could be used to anchor your shell display.
To make any outdoor wedding fun and whimsical, try making novelty tickets in place of traditional escort cards for guests. This idea could work for both outdoor and indoor weddings. Display them in new and different ways to allow for more interaction with guests. This is sure to be a crowd pleaser and your guests will definitely have something to talk about!
Another fun option is to print out the name and table number on a clear sticker and put it on a votive candle holder. This is a great idea because, not only do your guests leave with a votive holder, but the guests carry the candles to their seats and each table is lit with candle light during the reception.
There are so many different ideas out there for untraditional escort cards. Have fun with them … and get creative!
