Do We Need To Have Escort Cards?

We get this question from couples all the time! While you don’t have to have escort cards, it is always a good idea to assign your guests to a specific table. Can you imagine searching for a seat at a wedding where you don’t know many people? Talk about stressful! By assigning tables, you’ll save your guests from that stress, help everyone find a seat in a timely manner and make sure your rowdy college friends don’t accidentally sit with your conservative grandparents.

As an simple, decorative and budget-friendly alternative to escort cards, we love the idea of a seating chart! Names can be listed alphabetically or organized by table name, and the sign can be displayed on anything from an calligraphed chalkboard to a simple frame. Then, guests can either choose their own spot at the table, or each seat can have place card (which comes in handy if you need to tell the caterer which dish each guest ordered). Check out some of our favorite seating chart displays, below!

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.
