Good morning + Happy Wednesday! We hope you grabbed a gigantic cup of coffee today (or tea) because we have quite the read for you today! This is one of those posts that inspired me (more than usual) while writing it, so I sincerely hope it does the same for you. (Be sure to pin it for re-reading later!) First things first… if you’re planning a wedding reception with assigned tables, you’ll need an escort card display. Escort cards inform your guests where they’ll be seated… so, rather than roam around from table to table to find their name, they’ll easily grab their card, a drink, and have time to mingle before sitting down for dinner. Escort cards may have been a bit basic in the past, but thanks to handmade artisans (+ photographers to capture their work!) escort cards are in a decor class all their own! Today, we are sharing twenty-five of the best escort card ideas to save you time, energy, and give you a much-needed jolt of inspiration to kick start your day. And, whether you’re planning a rustic, vintage, nautical, or otherwise themed wedding, we’ve got you covered. So, if you’re ready to be inspired… let’s begin! (*Note: to purchase or see details on any items below, click on the link below the photo)
25 Best Escort Card Ideas for Weddings
1. Carnation Escort Card Display
Carnations were once a filler flower, but not any more! Score a lush setting for your escort cards (+ save a little money) with carnations, bunched together in a pretty hue like so…

February 14th is weeks away but it seems love is in full bloom in retail stores across the country. It’s hard to believe those red-lined candy canes were so quickly replaced by conversation hearts, valentine cards, teddy bears, and stockings of an entirely different kind. Yes, the best gifts will be gone in a hurry – in stores, that is. In the handmade market, though, right now is the perfect time to start shopping for the perfect gift to tug at her heartstrings and support handmade. Over the holidays, so many couples popped the question; in the next few weeks or months, brides-to-be across the country will be asking “will you be…” to another special person in their life: their bridesmaids. Asking “Will You Be My Bridesmaid” is an occasion that we think calls for something shiny, sweet, and sentimental – heart-felt, perhaps? – and we think you ought to get first dibs before the husbands and boyfriends nab the best handmade gifts. So, in honor of those best girlfriends who stood next to you in line at recess, who answered the phone in the middle of the night to heed advice, and to those who would laugh with you so hard you could barely breath (we all have at least one of those girlfriends!) we present these 14 heart shaped pendants sure to tug at your bridesmaids’ heartstrings. And, to the boyfriends and husbands out there, you’re welcome: we’ve done the hard work and uncovered 14 beautiful handmade ideas that will last longer than a dozen roses ever could. Bookmark this page and remember to support handmade! Each item listed below is handcrafted by an artisan and made-to-order exclusively for her.
