I do not think that is childish at all- it’s whimsical!  I love that idea, you should go for it.  How elegant!

I would put the name of the flower at the bottom of the card, in smaller print. I love the idea though– if/when we have a daughter, I’m planning to decorate her nursery with these, I even have some fabric my mom found years ago that will become her baby blanket (coincidetally, I also have her name picked out which guarantees we will have all boys!)

I think it’s an adorable idea!  What if the escort cards had the letter and a faint outline picture of the flower in the background?

I like it. It’s a bit childish but that’s at the heart of “whimsical” so I don’t think that’s a bad thing. And I think the pictures are very pretty. They are a bit girlish, but if your fiance is okay with them, then I say go for it! Mini pictures on the escort cards would be best but I think guests will figure it out if you just put the letter. And, of course, put the letters in order in the room.

The title of the post made me think that this could go a little childish, but seeing the sample you posted made me change my mind. Very whimsical and cute.

Baskerville Old Face… I’m pretty sure it’s a standard font 🙂

Absolutely gorgeous! I used to love the flower fairies. We had some antique books of flower fairies when I was a little girl.

@juliette.eliza:  I agree – the flower fairy’s type should be put on the card in smaller print somewhere.

I love this idea! It is very whimsical and it goes well with what you have shared about your reception plans. I have a soft spot for flower fairies; I love how specific and detailed they are in being based off of different flower varieties.

I love this idea! I think it’s romantic, whimsical, unique, and certainly memorable. This is much better than most ideas I’ve heard of or seen.

I love fairies (even have 3 tattooed on my back) so I think these are perfect for an outdoor spring wedding!

I agree with previous posters that perhaps the flower name should be on the escort card as well as the letter, just to help folks more easily determine where they are sitting.

I love it!  You could maybe add a vase of each flower on the tables as well.  You made me want to find my old Flower Fairy book!  I absolutely loved them and dreamt of coming back as one in my next life!

I think it’s perfect and it fits the theme, season, and venue well.
