31 Creative Escort Card Displays

Hi, loves! Today we’re inspiring you with escort card displays for weddings. If you are assigning seats to guests, an escort card display (or seating chart) is essential. (Read: Wedding Seating Mistakes to Avoid.) Escort cards can be displayed using tented cards — or try your hand at a creative twist! We’ve found ways to use chalkboards, pinback buttons, ladders, trees, pinwheels, vintage doors, succulents, weathered windowpanes, and even an old library card catalog to display your escort cards. Read on to see our hand-picked finds and tell us your favorite! Enjoy!

Escort Card Displays

One of my favorite escort card ideas is a favor and escort card in one. You can make DIY pinbacks with simple tent cards and pinback buttons (you can make your own buttons affordably — try Uber Buttons as one resource, as it’s really easy to use).

First Christmas ornaments engaged/married via 50+ First Christmas Ornaments Engaged / Married

Hi, loves! Happy Monday! Emma here and I am *definitely* getting in the holiday spirit. I swore I would wait to listen to Christmas music until after Thanksgiving, but I lied. I have been sneaking in a few tracks from my my favorite album and I secretly loved it. Plus, I am getting those mailers to my house chock-full of holiday decorating ideas (I’m looking at you, Bed Bath & Beyond) so naturally I flip through them and sip on my coffee and dream of the holidays. Anyways, we’re kicking off this beautiful Monday with a round-up of first Christmas ornaments engaged / married — all handmade from Etsy! — that you can add to your gift lists. I’ve attended many weddings this year and I want to give ornaments as gifts to newlyweds. I am pretty impressed with what I found on my search, so I’m sharing this HUGE round-up with you! And I honestly just ordered my first Christmas gift for someone this year (probably the earliest I’ve ever started) and once I did the item was marked “sold out” — I got the last one! — so it does help to order gifts early.

So go ahead and grab some coffee (this one is my favorite right now — so good) and get ready to deck the halls! It’s a little early, but it is actually just in time to order and have everything personalized + shipped in time for the holidays. P.S. You might want to Share on Facebook or pin on Pinterest for later! Enjoy!
