Escort Card (?) Roundup

One of the next projects I'm working on for my own wedding are the escort cards. While I love me some pretty caligraphy and heavy paper, there are so many other options out there.

On of my favorite options--particualrly for spring and summer weddings--is to use natural elements like fruit and flowers. Print guests names with typewriters (or maybe some courier new made to look like a typewriter) or beautiful caligraphy and you've created a really unique display for your guests.
Or if you have an especially unique theme, try to work that theme into the escort cards. I love excort cards that are not cards at all, but bottles, or a library card catalog.
But even if you do choose to do paper, there are so many ways to arrange the cards that it does not have to be boring. I love the use of tags, or arranging the cards as leaves or blossoms on a tree. And I've seen a lot of weddings using beautiful ribbon or string in escort card arrangements.

Lastly, I love it when escort arrangements are done by using large chalkboards (I know PB likes this one as well).

If you haven't already done so you should definitely check out Martha Stewart Wedding's website for more inspiration.

  1. I'm just guessing here but are the matrioskas your favorite? I lean towards the lavender sprig and the mini bottles

  2. such fun ideas. i wish i had something more creative like this at my wedding.

  3. I had never even thought about this nor have I paid any attention when I've been at weddings! Duh! I just want to know where my table is so that I can put my purse down.
    Now that I'm looking at these ideas I rather like the ones that look like playing cards (it needs to fit in a purse or pocket) ... maybe for a gift you could give a deck of cards with your cute faces on them!
