    That’s not where the tradition comes from or what it means at all. Traditionally, the women and men have separate parties in a room that is separated by a divider (for modesty. The men can’t see the women dance). The only time the couple ‘dance’ together is when they are both lifted up on chairs, each hold one end of a handkerchief, and are carried along the barrier on their respective sides.

    Hi Sarah,

    Thanks so much for pointing this out. We’re going to do more research around the origin of this tradition.

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.
