Wedding escort cards are still relatively new in the UK. They’re a wonderful trend from the US. Instead of a wedding seating plan, escort cards are picked up by guests as personal directions to their tables.
Escort cards can stand alongside a wedding seating plan or replace one. They’re small cards, sometimes in envelopes, with your guests’ names and a table name or number.
Introducing wedding escort cards
Think of wedding escort cards as little guides: pretty cards in a beautiful display which your guests will take by the hand, read and be led to their tables by. It’s a lovely personal touch, a practical idea and an excuse for a wonderful visual display of cards at the entrance to your wedding breakfast room.
Calligraphy for wedding escort cards
Having escort cards written in calligraphy is the icing on the cake – so to speak. Because there’s something very personal about hand lettering, something traditional and precious in the art of calligraphy.
A special, personal touch with calligraphy
Imagine personally greeting each guest and walking with them to their table for the speeches and wedding breakfast. Escort cards are the personal touch that comes a very close second to being shown, in person, to the right table.
