I did a guest post for the fabulous Allison of Engaged and Inspired yesterday, and so naturally I HAVE to post it here! :) When Allison asked me to guest post, I was SO excited! I wanted to do a post that was true to {ELD}, so I did an extended, more detailed take of {Detail To Love}!


This {Detail To Love} isn’t just a current love of mine- it’s long lasting. One of my absolute favorite wedding details ever. What might this detail be you ask? It’s escort cards and items! Note: I add in items because it’s becoming popular to use actual items (commonly doubling as favors) to escort guests to their seats as opposed to the traditional cards, and because I LOVE them!


The greatness of escort cards and items is all in how they look. They could be set up on or in something different, or the cards/items themselves could be completely unique and reflect the whole style of the wedding flawlessly. Let’s take a look at some of the awesome escort card/item setups I’m loving….



Go the traditional route and add your own twist to it with different patterns of paper!

Add a little something to your traditional escort cards and voila, you have adorable escort cards with a little pizzazz.

Cards but not really….

Use something that meant to be an escort card and just attach the names to them. With something like the below example, you could even have your tables named with the colors, and not even numbered!

Hanging cards…

Oh how I love hanging things! Having your escort cards hanging is a great way to grab people’s attention!

Vertical display…

This escort card display is another hanging one, but this time the cards are on a magnetized board with a fabulous frame. Another great way to get guests’ attention!

Escort items…

And finally, my favorite. These little books have the guest name on the spine, and the table number on the front as the “title”. They doubled as guest favors, and added a fabulous element of decor to the whole wedding!

There are SO many different ways to display escort cards, and I’m pretty much obsessed with them all- that is, as long as they’re not traditional! Tell me, what are some of your favorite ways to see escort cards/items? (Include links too if you have them!)
