Wedding Escort cards that star your gorgeous guests are a fun alternative to the traditional small card with name and table number. Check out these creative takes on this fun, photo escort card idea.
Now that you’ve exchanged vows, it’s time to party! Guests will be making a beeline for the bar but they’ll also be looking for their reception seats. The escort card—typically a small card printed with their name and table assignment—is their guide to get there.
These days, though, couples are coming up with crazy-creative ways to direct guests to their seats. One of our favorite escort card ideas? Repurposing a photo of each guest as the escort card itself. Start by collecting pictures of every guest (labor-intensive, yes, but you could start with Facebook and use everyone’s profile pictures). Next, print them out with their name and table number. Then, display them at cocktail hour in a fun and unique way. All your guests will get a kick out of seeing their mugs up on display!
I love this clever idea! Ask guests to replace their escort card with a photo. Here, the couple strung traditional calligraphed escort cards onto twine with clothespins. Then, they set up a station with Instax instant cameras so guests could snap their photo and replace their escort card with the picture (for the couple to keep). Such a fun way to repurpose an escort-card display!
Or, for something a bit simpler, print out photos of your guests to resemble Polaroids, along with their names and table number. Cut them out so that they are tented and able to stand on their own, then arrange the photos in alphabetic order by first or last name.
Turn a simple framed chalkboard into a creative escort-card display by attaching lengths of twine to create rows. Use miniature clothespins to affix photos of your guests with their seating information, then finish the display off with a fresh garland of greens.
