While planning the lay out and décor of a wedding reception, a main goal is to create points of interest that grab the attention of guests while guiding them to various areas such as their table, the bar, etc. One focal point that often gets looked over is the wedding card box. Between the transition from ceremony to cocktail hour, and socializing and entertainment that follows, people get caught up in the reverie of the day. It’s important to set up a highly-visible display to remind them that the card they’ve been carrying has a proper place to go. No ‘just married’ couple wants to return from their honeymoon and learn that their guests were confused and cards were misplaced, or even worse, lost in the shuffle.

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 soirée 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.

There are certain elements of wedding decor that are made to not only look pretty, but serve a functional purpose as well. One such element is the presentation of escort cards and seating charts. Traditionally, escort cards are placed neatly on a table topped with an eye-catching arrangement. After cocktail hour, guests pick up the cards and are directed to their tables. This conventional setup and process is tried and true. However, what we have noticed most recently is that couples are requesting unique and ‘out-of-the box’ designs for their escort cards and seating charts. It’s the first decorative piece people see as they head to the reception after all, and sets the vibe for the rest of the night. And even if you are planning a timelessly classic wedding, this is one area that allows room for putting a personal and creative spin on decor. Feeling inspired? Read on for unique escort card and seating chart displays guaranteed to impress your guests.
