Following my blog post on creative table plans, this week we’re tackling escort cards.
Escort cards are an excellent way to show your personality and style throughout your wedding and are a great alternative to table plans. They are a great opportunity to get really creative with both the design and theme of the day and from a practical point of you if you have any last-minute guest changes it’s a lot easier to change an escort card than a whole table plan.
But wait what are escort cards you may be asking? Escort cards are a US alternative to the table plan where rather than a single board (or multiple boards) that list the guests’ name by table or alphabetically, with escort cards each guest has their own “card” (as you’ll see below you’re not limited to cards), which will say their name and designated table name/number.
An escort card can also be a lovely keepsake for your guest to remember your wedding by and makes a great alternative to favours too.
Whether you’re a modern, classic or boho bride this list has something for everyone.
To start with something classic, traditional calligraphy escort cards, elegant and timeless.

Escort cards in envelopes also give you an opportunity to add a personal message to your guests
These geometric cards are beautiful, the beehive shape is fun and unique and great style for an art deco inspired wedding day.

As I said above you’re not limited to cards, in these examples the couples used agate geode slices. A lovely way to inject some good energy into your special day, perfect for a boho style wedding.
An escort card and a refreshment? Yes please. Grab a cup and serve yourselves a drink!
Flowers and vases are a great idea as they not only give your guests a little token of your affection but will brighten up your tables.

Individual glass boxes can be a very romantic touch and lovely keepsake from the wedding.
Your wedding day should be a reflection of your lives together. Having an actual physical representation of some of your favourite things is a fun and unique way to celebrate this.
As always there are so many other styles and designers I wish I could share with you, but do take a look at my Pinterest board for more ideas and make sure to check out my previous blog post Always Loves: Creative Table Plans .
