If you are having a sit down reception following your ceremony, you will normally have a seating plan for your guests. But how do you get the milling throng to the right tables without a lengthy queue or crowd around the seating chart? An easy way to guide your guests – and show off a splash of personality or coordinate with your theme – is to create escort cards. These can be of any style but should have the guests names and table name or number printed clearly.
At The Knot there’s a great gallery of escort cards from real weddings that could help you chose what style you like. For fun, I love these brightly coloured elephants, for sheer beauty opt for the crystal drops and elegance, pick the pretty bud vases with gerberas that also double as favours.
