Even the most caring, invested wedding guest looks forward to the reception. It’s a time of celebration and utter bliss: a lovely commemoration and a well-deserved distraction from everyday life. As the bride or groom, you want to ensure the enjoyment of your close friends and family at your soirée, beginning from the moment they enter the space to the second they exit. What better way than to greet your guests with artful escort cards to guide them to their assigned seats?

These place cards are often a wedding attendee’s first glimpse into the overarching motif of the evening, as well as a fun keepsake they can use to remember the day by. Past couples have gotten incredibly innovative when designing their escort cards: get inspired to do the same with these examples from real weddings and styled shoots feature on InsideWeddings.com.
