Escort Cards: Getting Creative

Every bride wants their wedding to have unique personal touches that reflects their style and vision. One easy way to do this is by giving your escort card some flare. There are many ways to personalize your escort cards so that they can fit your style, budget, and theme.

If you are going for a glam wedding, one fabulous way to display escort cards is in ring boxes. To display these escort cards you would open the box then attach the name and table number to the inside. These cute boxes can be ordered online and are very affordable. They come in crystal clear, white or black velvet. To make the boxes pop, rest them on a bed of rose petals or lay them on a bright colored linen.

If you are having a fun, laid back summer wedding get a long rectangular plant pot, fill it with sand and then place large round suckers standing in the sand. Attach the escort card in the center of the circle and it will look incredibly creative.

If your wedding is in the fall, pine cones are always an excellent escort card holder. Cut off the end so it is nice and flat, display them on a table and insert the escort cards.

Do you love music? Why not combine your escort cards with favors for your guests. Make a CD of songs that are important to you and your hubby then print off CD Labels with an engagement picture as the background. Either attach the escort card onto the CD or incorporate it into your CD label. Don’t want to bother with the labels? No problem, many companies will custom make them with every detailed touch you want. An easy way to display this would be in long sheets of CD holders that can be hung onto the wall.

There is something special about a wedding during the holidays. If your wedding is in December and you love a little holiday spirit, print off your escort cards on normal rectangular paper. About one third above the bottom edge of the escort card glue a stick of cinnamon on the back.
This will make the card stand on its own, add a wonderful aroma and fit your theme.

If you love the organic look but still want a bit of glitz, you can have the florist make you a large willow like branched tree or you can buy one yourself at the store. Attach beautiful flowers sparingly throughout the branches. To give your escort cards some sparkle, attach some beading onto the bottom for a really couture look and hook them onto the tree branches.
