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…

Hi, loves! Question: have you heard of Brighter Day? Whitney, the designer behind this amazing brand, puts her whole heart into each beautiful accessory. She loves custom orders and she even donates 10% of her proceeds to a good cause. As a Featured Artisan in The Marketplace, we took notice when she launched her new collection of gathered clutch purses and we think you’ll agree they’re pure perfection. Instead of a wedding clutch you will carry once and stow as a keepsake – or, a bridesmaid clutch that matches their wear-once dress – consider a gathered clutch purse that can be carried long after the last song. Read on to find out more and share your favorite…

Planning a perfect bridal shower is a whole lot easier with a theme set in place. One of our favorites is a kitchen themed bridal shower, in which guests can stock the pantry or bring gifts of baking to the newlyweds. If you’re planning a kitchen themed bridal shower for your favorite bride-to-be (or you’re hinting at ideas for your party-planning posse) don’t forget the secret ingredient: bridal shower recipe cards. When you send out invitations, include one card for each guest to fill out with her favorite recipe and bring to the shower. When guests arrive, collect the cards and place in a recipe book for the couple. They’ll have a collection of handwritten, tried-and-true recipes they will cherish for a lifetime of home-cooked dinners. Plus, this is one gift that kicks any registry’s you-know-what.
