Place card & escort card ideas… continued

As promised… here are a few more ideas for place cards and escort cards!  First up – escort cards hung from a clothesline have been a staple of outdoor weddings for the past several years, but are also really easy to customize to suit your wedding style and theme:

Instead of hanging escort cards in the air, these escort cards are attached via miniature clothespins and twine along a flat table surface:

One charming wedding featured escort cards in the form of a handwritten note to each guest from the bride and groom – such a wonderful and personal touch!

If you plan to work with a calligrapher for your place cards (or even plan on doing the calligraphy yourself), stamps are a great way to dress up standard tented place cards. Paper-Source carries a great selection of stamps featuring floral patterns, animals, and other designs, but you can also try searching ebay for vintage stamps.

If you’re not planning to use calligraphy, try Kathryn’s suggestion of using individual rubber stamps to spell out guests’ names, or try using an every day object, such as these old playing cards, and label them using pre-printed or hand-written names on store-bought labels:

Continuing the rubber stamps idea, I’ve always held a particular fondness for this constellation idea, as well as using small bunches of lavender as escort cards:

Last for today, in addition to making fun Save the Date cards, post cards can also serve as a fun option for escort cards, with guests’ names and table number written in place of an address:

I’d love to hear your ideas – what are you doing for your escort cards or place cards?
