The traditional paper escort card certainly has its place in the history of wedding planning and design. After finding their assigned seats, guests typically toss these rectangular pieces of paper to the side without giving them a second thought. Rather than being purely functional and let’s be honest, run-of-the-mill, what if this essential wedding component was a conversation starter and something your guests actually want to keep?

The great thing about escort cards is that they allow couples to play up their wedding aesthetic and personality while offering the chance to veer off brand a little – there’s no rule saying you can’t incorporate gilded miniature dinosaurs into an elegant all white wedding! You can have the most extravagant florals in the most luxurious venue, but it’s the unique and personal details of your wedding that everyone remembers most. From artistic to fun to thoughtful, we rounded up creative escort card ideas guaranteed to surprise your guests.

If binge watching Bridgerton during the pandemic taught us anything, it’s that in order to throw a fabulous social event that will have the town talking for weeks to come, you must go BIG on flowers. As wedding florists, we couldn’t help but be inspired by the lavish soirĂ©e scenes styled with decadent blossoms that looked whimsical and curated at the same time. This got us thinking… since weddings are widely considered the most important social occasion one will ever have, arrangements and decorative elements that dazzle the eye, flirt with the heart, and push the imagination must be in order.

There’s no denying the romantic charm dancing candlelight brings to the wedding tablescape. While white and ivory are a classic choice, more couples are opting for color when it comes to lighting up their reception. What is so attractive about colorful taper candles other than beauty is their versatility – they work with just about any wedding style and type of venue. From a floral designer’s perspective, we love how colored taper candles can be used to accentuate the decorative aesthetic while creating a sense of cohesion through out a space. And one thing is for certain, colorful taper candles will elevate the room whether you make them a focal point or just scattered them across the tabletop.

Truth be told, for each Real BB Weddings bride who embraces pink for her wedding bouquet, there’s one just behind her who wants nothing to do with the color. Pink symbolizes compassion, femininity, love, and romance – everything you want on your big day. And because of this, it tends to be a bold color on the eye and emotions, thus, influencing the overall aesthetics and mood of a weddingscape. If your style is modern, refined, or understated, high-impact may not be what you are going for. Recently, however, we are seeing clients use pink in innovating ways that will make naysayers have a change of heart. Neutral, muted, soft blush, even nude are the adjectives that come to mind when describing these calming pink tones that are appearing more and more in bridal arrangements.

Flowers are used to punctuate the most important elements of a wedding’s decor and atmosphere.
