Wedding Escort Cards | 2015
Today I’m going to show off some wedding escort cards! I’ve recently given a lot of advice on your wedding reception seating, but now for less words and more pretty photos of options for completing the task of seating your wedding guests at your reception. You can also check out my 2016 wedding invitations for more wedding stationery ideas.
Many couples will put thought into how these cards will be displayed at their wedding reception, for a few reasons. First, if the cards will be outside, they need to be secured from a breeze. Second, this is often one of the first things your wedding guests will see when they arrive at your reception, and you will want this table to make a good first impression.

As an alternative to escort cards, you can guide your wedding guests to their reception table with a seating chart or poster! Two of my 2015 clients opted for this. Be sure to organize your seating chart alphabetically by last name, so your guests can find their assignment quickly.
