Having a symbolic representation of them such as a photo or keepsake close by helps fill the empty space they’ve left while offering comfort and bittersweet joy. From your bouquet to decor, here are meaningful ways to honor the memories of loved ones at your wedding.

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.
