10 Elegant & Creative Escort Card Display Ideas

There are many opportunities to personalize your wedding or weave a theme or motif through it. However, one of my favorites has to be the escort card display. This is what guests will encounter after the ceremony and during the cocktail hour. And, while you can choose to have a seating chart instead, escort cards add a little something special. Escort cards are not only a useful tool to direct guests to their tables, they can also serve as an installation, an interactive display, or even favors. So it’s always worth giving some thought and creativity into how you put together your escort card display. After all, it’s an element that will always draw your guests’ attention, so why not make it beautiful and memorable? To give you some inspiration, I’ve gathered ten escort card display ideas from some of our recent weddings. Which is your favorite?

Talk about sitting pretty! Classic tented escort cards look oh-so-lovely placed on clear boxes filled with roses! It makes the setup just that bit more interesting than arranging them all on the table directly.

This was another classic escort card display with a twist. In this case, we traded in standard tented cards for round escort cards. I love how clean and modern the results are, reflecting those white cylinder vases.

At this wedding, each guest found their name printed on an escort card, tucked into a mini envelope. The pattern was repeated throughout the wedding, including on the custom dance floor!

Now this was unique! For this Miramar wedding, we commissioned a custom mural. On either side, escort cards were hung in neat formation for an escort card display that was both modern and personal.

Sometimes a classic display is all you need, especially when the display is styled to reflect the design of the reception with a variety of china vases, flowers, and dozens of candles.
