You’ve said your I dos and had a buzzing cocktail hour! What now? It’s time to fill those hungry stomachs and refuel for a memorable reception bash. When it comes to seating charts, we know that you’ve spent quite some time mulling over who sits where and with whom. After spending hours fine-tuning your seating arrangements, it’s only fair to get creative with displaying those names! Sure, the classic white cards do the job just fine, but who wants to stick to the basics when you can have fun with even the simplest things? Whether it’s revamped paper designs or items doubled as favors, here are some of our favorite creative alternatives for your escort card displays!

These modern display ideas feature a fun pop of color, perfect for a boho beach or desert celebration as unique as you! Get your guests ready for dinner with cool cocktail sips or fun shots. Make it interactive and prompt your guests to click pictures that you can look back at and rejoice.
Bright & Colorful

Colorful and creative, these artistic ideas are great if you want to do something out of the box. And if you’re planning an art-themed wedding, all the more so! It’s the perfect idea to add fun colors and follow a unique theme. Get paint-dipped brushes customized with names carved, assigning a color to match tables. For another attractive display, we think following an ombre color scheme is pretty cool too. Add sweet thank you notes in each pocket to personalize it for your guests, creating something attractive, surprising, and heartfelt.
Floral or Crystal?

This wall titled ‘Our Favorite Wallflowers’ held contemporary frames of pressed flowers, over which names were beautifully calligraphed. We love the simple yet artsy idea, perfect for a modern-chic wedding theme. Raw quartz crystals are unique escort card ideas that can double as pretty favors.

For something more playful, let your favorite game fuel your imagination. From Lego figurines to this creative deck of Cards Against Humanities, you have many options to draw inspiration. This set of cards was personalized to create an interactive experience with a clue for each guest to match up with a prompt on every table. Now that’s different! Escort arrows on a target board is another excellent idea you can use, best for a sports or camp-themed wedding.
Keep The Love In A Photograph

Another great idea for creating personalized escort displays is with fun polaroid shots of your guests. You can also add sweet love notes behind each picture, a nice gesture to thank them for being there on your wedding day. But these memories are enough to have them feel the love! After all, a picture can speak a thousand words!
Add Sweet Quotes

Selecting a few of your favorite quotes is a smart way to style up your escort card display. From neon signs to gilded in gold, jazz up your display for an eye-catching look that guests will love. If you’re anything like us and love a quirky wordplay, add a quote that’s cute and punny like in the first photo! We’re sure your guests will be amused.
