The escort card is an important part of a wedding reception. Without it, your guests would not know where to sit for dinner. But most of these cards are pretty boring; a white or ivory written on it in black ink. Your escort cards are a great place to do something creative. It is great if you can come up with a unique format that also fits in well with the general theme or feeling of your wedding. Although you need them, you do not need to limit yourself to the standard form, especially when you are having your wedding outside. Check out these best escort Card Ideas for Weddings.
Your escort cards do not even have to be traditional notecards. If you are having an elegant style outdoor wedding, the sort where the bride wears a really graceful wedding dress and handmade jewelry, a very fresh look would be to use a gold marker to inscribe names onto a piece of fruit such as a pear or spray gold onto fruit. It is the epitome of the simple but elegant effect that so many brides strive for as their wedding design, photo by ashleybuzzy

It is great to bring elements of your wedding setting into your displays. If you are having your reception in a field, a neat way to arrange the table cards is to “plant” them in a tabletop field of wheatgrass. You can easily grow your own patch of wheatgrass, or in a pinch, get a piece of sod from a landscaper. Trim the edge of the grass square with a thin strip of wood or bamboo. The escort cards can be lined up in tidy rows on the bed of grass. This little project takes a minimal effort, but will pay big dividends in the style department, photographed by Tess Pace

A length of clothesline serves as a great place to display your seating cards. Arrange them alphabetically and use clothespins to clip each one to the clothesline. As a bonus, intersperse photos of the bride and groom or old family photos between the escort cards by pinning them to the rope between about every eighth or tenth card. Your friends will love strolling down memory lane as they look for their dinner assignment, photographed by Lexia Frank Photography
