I hope you enjoyed the earlier installment of creative escort and place card ideas!  There are so many great ideas, one post couldn’t possibly contain them all.  Here are a few more ideas to help inspire your wedding day stationery!

How cute are these escort cards? Let me count the ways: The type!  The twine!  The glitz!  Designed by Amy Hardy –  Design8days, photographed by Paper Antler via 100 Layer Cake.

  1. How are you supposed to use the tags in the top image as escort cards? They’re tied to the string.

  2. All of them are gorgeous, great selection!

    Do you guys not call them place cards? Is that a wired Australian thing or are they different?

  3. Hi Liz! Thanks for your comment! Place cards and escort cards are actually two different things. Please check the bottom of the previous post for a description of the different roles for place cards and escort cards. :)
