Craft escort cards from paint chips

Want free escort cards for your seating chart? Steal this colorful idea from Lauren and Vaughn’s Mennonite wedding.

Use clip-on earrings as place card holders

My very good friend’s wedding was beach themed, so I thought it was appropriate to suggest using beach-y clip-on earrings on the place card holders. They continue the theme, they add stability to the cards, and they’re a snap to put on!

Repurpose cassette tapes as place cards

If you’re like me, you probably have an old shoe box full of cassette tapes, and nary a cassette deck in sight. Instead of ditching your old tapes, you can do what Offbeat Bride Lauren did at her House of Blues wedding

Create a spooky place card display with flying bats

Cut out bat-shaped place cards, and hang them from dark branches to make them look like they’re in mid-flight!

Use vampire fangs to display your place cards

Looking for an awesome way to display your place cards at your Halloween, horror, vampire, or gothic-themed wedding? Then do what Kari and Rick did at their Halloween wedding. Kari painted vampire fangs silver and placed the cards between the fangs!

Show your guests to their seats AND give them a drink at the same time

Monica and Mike used old-timey bottled sodas that served as both favors and escort cards. This would be a great idea for a summertime wedding to let your guests quench their thirst while they search for their seats!
