You exchanged your rings, you said your vows, and now it’s time for the party! As your guests make their way into the reception they’ll be wondering who they’re sitting with, so the escort card table is the first stop they’ll make. To give them a display to remember, we’ve compiled a list of creative and exquisite escort card ideas.

Make it personal. Do you live near the beach, a lake, or a river? Beautifully handwrite your guests’ names on seashells, driftwood, or river rocks to further incorporate your lives into the evening. Personal touches like this are part of what make weddings so special. Your guests, especially those traveling from afar, will get a sneak peak into your daily lives. By collecting and creating name cards, you’re giving your guests a glimpse into the things you hold dear.

Create a vignette. Do you have a theme for your wedding? Here’s your chance to add a special little something to the décor. If you’re channeling organic vibes, think of opting for a take-home escort card, such as a namecard on mini potted succulents or attached to a small vase with a single flower. Feeling traditional? Keep it elegant and romantic with an English garden tablescape of soft candles and gorgeously manicured floral arrangements.

Your wedding is a place of love, joy, and fun, so remember to keep it light! Are you particularly crafty? Make your place cards using paper flowers “growing” out of a bed of grass. For a Las Vegas theme, use personalized chips on a roulette table or name cards as a message in a bottle à la Treasure Island.

Think vertical. Nobody ever said your escort cards need to be on a table. Consider hanging them from twine with clothespins surrounded by bouquets of wildflowers or tied to vines accented with peony blooms. We’re loving floral live walls as an option, where escort cards are displayed against an entire wall of stunning flowers. The contemporary creativity of these ideas will make your escort card display unforgettable.

A unique and true-to-you approach will ensure your escort card display will be a memorable and exceptional addition to your important day.
