Hi! Does anyone have any fun or creative ideas for the escort cards/place cards? Or are you doing something more traditional and just folded card stock?
I’ve been looking online as to where I could buy folded escort cards…but haven’t been able to find anything where they would print the names for me (I have awful handwriting). That got me to thinking of doing something a little more creative. What is everyone else doing??
I have a 1920’s theme wedding so would like something to go along with that theme if possible (feathers, pearls, etc.) although I really do like the wine cork idea I have been seeing a lot!
Also, does anyone have any fun decorating ideas for their name card table??

Each escort card was cut across the bottom with decorative scissors to create the illusion of lace. The cards were placed on fabric-lined picture frames, some of which are vintage and others, sanded and spray-painted to fit in with the decor
combine escort cards and favor- silhouettes were very popular in the 20’s

We are using mini chalkboards for our escort cards

We’re tossing around the idea of using picture coasters that you can slide a picture or piece of paper into. Another coaster would be set on the napkins on the tables and would have the table number inserted. The pair would be a favor as well.

I used a special pen when writing my invites to make any handwriting look neater, they are called berol italic pen.
Then you can write your own cards and it will make life a little easier.

I’m doing something sort of like this. I’m laminating the tags and I’m not doing customized labels (because we are purposely using beers that correspond to the countries of origin of ourselves and our guests).

I hand stamped guests names onto mini bag/envelopes and pinned them to a cork board frame. The envelope had the guests name but the tag on the inside told the guest which table they were at. Our table names places in Colorado my husband and I have traveled. There was a description of each place and why it was special to us on the tag also.
It was a fun project for me to work on, and was fun to share some of our funny personal stories with friends and family.

I am doing a seating chart (most likely on an old window or door – we are going for the rustic look) and then on the tables for seating assignment we are putting pieces of birch with everyones name on them at their seat.
