One of the simplest ways to make a wedding memorable for your guests is to anchor them into the day. The traditional American 'escort card' is a brilliant way of doing this as it gives you the opportunity to write a personal note to each guest and make them feel like a part of the wedding. Plus, it's a chic alternative to a formal table-plan board and as they can be made in advance it allows for any last-minute seating changes!
We've just come across these fun colourful ones by Love Post. Write the name and table number on the envelope and add your personal note on the card inside. Display the labeled envelopes in alphabetical order on a table in your reception space.
