Eccentric Escort Cards

Let's get creative!  Escort and place cards are a great avenue to highlight the overall theme of your wedding and showcase your creativity!  Picking something a little off the beaten path instead of your typical table lined with plain white cards can be a fun way to spark guests interest, create a memory and even have their own special keepsake!

You can do anything from arranging your cards on a vertical frame to using that card as your favor!  For a coastal affair, consider using oyster shells.  They can hold your cards or for a more "cast away" look, inscribe directly on the shell!

For a vineyard themed wedding, try a wine cork or even get seasonal with gold foil leaves attached to a tree for a fall wedding.  In this heat, I'm already dreaming of the cooler weather!  My personal faves though are ones that really show the personality of the couple.  I both of the ideas below of hand-painting Mexican tiles (try Tuscan for an Italian style wedding) with guests' names or creating a paper flower for each table with guests names as the petals! 

Here are just a few ideas to spark your own!
