Unique Ideas for Escort Cards


Your wedding guests have all joined together to celebrate your big day, however, at your reception, they will certainly want to be seated at times, such as when they enjoy their meal, or to take a break from the dancing. Oftentimes, guests find their seats from a place card, displaying their table number, however, the plain and simple cardstock place cards can be a bit boring for some brides, who would rather bring a unique and creative approach to their elements of décor.

Because your place cards play an important role on your wedding day, you should consider creating them to be a prominent element of décor, and stand out in a personalized way. Here are a few fun ideas that are sure to catch yours guests attention!

·         Succulents. Everyone loves flowers, however, they can be hard to maintain, but, if you choose succulents to create your escort cards within, you can ensure that the choice will be pleasing to all of your wedding guests. Succulents offer a unique and intricate design, with their thick leaves that stores water within them, allows them to strive in warm and dry climates, needing very little tending to. So, not only will your guests be able to find their seats within these little beauties, as you can label their pots with names and numbers, or include a fun little sign sticking out of their dirt, but they can also serve as a wedding favor that allows your love to keep growing.

·         Cookies. Baked in a variety of flavors, you can almost guarantee that your wedding guests will enjoy cookies if you choose to create them to be your place cards. The fun aspect of cookies, is that you can create many flavors and designs. For your table number information, you can cut the shape of the cookie to reflect the table number, and write the name in frosting among the cookie, for a delicious and informational outcome, that can also serve as wedding favors as well.

·         Leaves. For a more natural approach, especially for a Fall wedding, consider using dry leaves as your place cards, as they will bring an earthy feel to your big day in an absolutely stunning way. Create your leaves to be either all alike in size, or choose different sizes and shapes for a more personalized approach, then, choose a beautiful colored ink to create lovely calligraphy among them, displaying your seating arrangements.

You have all enjoyed a great meal, delicious cake and then you jetted off onto your honeymoon. After returning, you have unpacked your suitcases, and opened all of your lovely gifts, so now it is time to sit down and write the perfect “thank you” notes.

Does a "Day-Of Coordinator" only show up on the wedding day?

"I've done all my own planning and want a "day-of" coordinator but can't find one who will show up on the wedding day only!  Why?"

There's probably a lot of confusion amongst engaged couples because of the term "day-of" coordinator. If you end up speaking to someone who says they will only show up on the wedding day and save you lots of money because of it, please stay clear of them!

Many wedding planners may label their coordination as "day-of" wedding coordination, but there is far more involved than just showing up on the wedding day when it comes to a professional wedding planner who knows what she/he is doing.
