Instead of posting one single DIY project today, I decided to share this Seating Options board I created for a bride. I am a HUGE proponent of assigning table numbers to guests, because it eliminates so many possible problems that could possibly occur. However, there are so many more options to choose from for your seating other than just plain escort cards. Don’t get me wrong, escort cards are awesome, and so classy, but you can display them in SO many fun and unique ways!


Below are some examples of different ways to display your “escort cards”…and they are all very much DIY!

Row 2: TwineApple Escort Cards, Buttons

Row 3: Escort Card TreeCloth Escort Cards, Chalkboard

Row 4: Old Door, Grass Display, Triangle Display

Row 5: Empty Window Pane, Cloth Tags

Row 6: Pinwheels, FramesApples


So, which one is your favorite? I’m going to be honest, I really can’t decide which one I like the most. I think the magnetic board with the actual numbers is pretty cool though!

    I love the numbers in the top row. I’m so glad brides (and planners) are getting more creative with escort and place cards and seating charts. It’s fun to see what creative ideas they come up with!

    I’m still debating on what I’m going to do for our seating chart. I need to make that decision soon.

    These are a lot of great ideas!

    So many great choices to choose from! I am beginning to like the single board options, either in frames, the chalkboard, etc as I think it is a very green way to do it!
