Each week, we will share our top picks for inspiration and style in many aspects of the wedding planning process. In addition to us creating lists, we will also have guest bloggers contribute their top picks of the week on occasion. This week, Laura from Fresh + Inspired Events will be offering her Top 4 favorite ideas for escort cards!
Escort cards are a great opportunity to add a little something different to the reception. Aside from being functional, escort cards allow you to infuse color or favors into the seating process. Sometimes, the cards are the first glimpse of your reception the guests will see and can really set the tone and style of your wedding reception.
This combination of coral and navy adds a special pop of color against the neutral tan escort cards. One way to create a colorful escort card display is to use color codes for tables, in addition to numbers.
I’m a huge fan of offering guests a token of thanks in addition to providing them their seating location. These succulents are perfect to display escort cards and your guests can enjoy taking them home!
Offering a beverage as an escort card is lovely! Since it takes a while (in most cases) for beverages to be served during a reception, your guests will love a refreshing drink as they sit down. Think about serving a signature beverage to guests — tea, lemonade or sparkling water are all great bases for signature drinks.
If you don’t want to dedicate more of your budget to creating escort cards, writing your guests’ names on mirrors or window panes is an economical and stylish choice. Whether you’re having a rustic or contemporary wedding, a lovely backdrop and beautiful calligraphy is a perfect option for seating assignments.
