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).
I love this escort card display which utilizes an old library card catalog. You can actually buy an old library card catalog here, can you believe that?! So cool. I want one for my home as a vintage piece.
… and this cork escort card display for a wine-themed wedding.
And last but not least, I love this succulent escort card display set in small silver pails. Cute idea! You can also DIY this one yourself. Order succulents in bulk along with mini galvanized buckets.
