An introduction to wedding escort cards

Meeting with couples to chat about wedding stationery always inspires me. (You’re all brilliant, you know that?!) A question that came up again and again at the Muncaster wedding fair was “how do escort cards work?”.

apple escort cards

These wedding escort cards tied to apples are rustic, quirky and fun! A table full of decorated apples looks fab too. They were so popular at the wedding fair that a gorgeous little girl called Robyn even ate one! (not the tag)

I’ve written a quick post over on my calligraphy blog to introduce escort cards to anyone who isn’t familiar with them. They’re basically a more creative, cheaper, interactive and flexible alternative to a formal wedding seating plan. Find out more here: my wedding escort cards article

  • Dearest Claire,
    Excellent concept for killing two birds with one stone. Looks very special with your artsy calligraphy and makes an excellent wedding favor as well.
    Wishing you all the success you deserve.

    Escort cards are a fab idea when couples want an alternative idea for a table plan. One of my clients is having a Christmas wedding so it was suggested that they have baubles scattered on a table each with an escort card…useful and also acts as a favour! It’d be lovely if you could go an find your bauble hanging off a huge Christmas tree though…
    Your escort cards look absolutely stunning; I love the lace 🙂

      Hi Wendy,

      That’s a fantastic idea! (I think there are baubles in the air today!!!)

      I love the interactive aspect of escort cards – more fun already than just reading names from a chart. Your suggestion of picking baubles from a Christmas tree is fantastic and takes things a step further! I LOVE it!!
