Catherine and Mike never considered one song “theirs” they fell in love with “Come Live With Me” by Ray Charles and chose it for first dance at their Orange, VA wedding.

What made it special: “Although we had originally wanted something more upbeat, the lyrics to this song were too good not to choose our first dance,” said the bride. The lyrics “With these hands, I”ll build a roof to shield your head/Yes, and with these hands/I’ll carve the wood for our baby’s bed, ” because Mike is a carpenter. “It reminds me of Mike’s hard work ethic and determination and desire to provide for us,” said Catherine.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
