Ligature Arturo Style Invitation

"The experience of receiving an invitation starts with the envelope, so you want it to feel special and significant right from the start. When your guests see that envelope in their stack of mail, they will begin to feel the excitement of the event before they even open it up," Bryn says.

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.
