The escort cards vs. placecard conundrum

While the wedding invitation is the most important element of a stationary suite, the *escort card and place seat card can be equally important. Whether you choose escort cards or place cards, they can help to carry out the theme from your invitation suite or wedding theme to the reception and carry to make your event cohesive. There are thousands of unique versions available today and the sky is the limit!

You can spray paint river rocks to include the names on the front and the table assignment on the back

You can tuck the escort or place cards into pinecones, sand, wheat grass, coffee beans, candy or whatever else to help carry out your wedding theme. These also include a pig, chicken and cow to indicate the guests' entree choice.

You can tie your escort and place cards to your favors. A sweet treat from the start as the escort cards were tied to pink and green lollipops and anchored in boxes filled with jelly belly's.

These escort cards continued the wedding color theme and wrapped around scratch lotto tickets!

Add meaning to your props: These escort cards were pinned to the tree for the family members and placed on the table for friends.

Black buttons listed the guests' names and the pink card listed their table number

*Escort cards include the guests' name and table number that are displayed in a central area (they can be displayed on a table or hung from a tree) and organized by last name, which guests use to find their table assignment. Placecards seat guests at a specific seat at their assigned table. So, escort cards seat guests at a specific table, while placecards assign each guest a specific seat at the table.
