Say My Name Say My Name – Creative Escort Card Ideas

After you’ve said “I Do” and everyone’s had a chance to enjoy a drink at cocktail hour, your guests will be looking to find their reception seats. It’s amazing to see how escort card displays have evolved over the years and the creative things couples are swapping out for simple stationary.  Traditionally, classic seating cards are pieces of paper with names and table assignments on them but you certainly don’t have to follow tradition these days. If you’re one of those brides who wants to think outside the box you’ll want to keep on reading and consider anything from marble tiles to acrylic drink stirrers.

Here are some of personal favorites! Click the description to head straight to Etsy where you can place your order.

1. Acrylic Place Cards starting at $2 each

2. Marble Hexagon Place Cards starting at $3 each

Elegant and timeless! These are sure to impress your guests.  *Insider tip* Do you already have someone in your inner circle who is skilled at calligraphy? If so, head to your local Lowe’s or Home Depot and pick up some tile samples. Often times you can find these tiles in 12″ samples and break them apart to make individual place cards.

3. Personalized Agate Slices starting around $4 each

Perfect for the boho bride!

4. Double Sided Calligraphy Scrolls – For Champagne Glasses starting at $1.80 each

Aren’t these gorgeous? You can add your guest’s table number to the bottom of the scroll and on the opposite side add in your wedding date, monogram, etc.

5. Laser cut drink stirrers starting at $2.50 each

Start the party off right with a glass of bubbly for each guest and a drink stirrer with their name etched on. 

6. Laser cut wood cutout place cards (also available in acrylic) starting at $1 each

*Insider tip* While these laser cut place cards are one of my all time favorite choices they are also one of the most delicate options when it comes to transporting them. If you love this style I highly recommending ordering them way in advance and allowing enough time to re-order a few that might have been damaged during shipping.

7. Personalized Hand Writing Calligraphy Capiz Shell Wedding Place Cards starting at $3.13

8. Gold dipped Magnolia leaf place cards starting at $2.25 each

Where do I begin? If you're considering hiring Event Prep as a wedding planner, stop thinking and DO it. Cassandra was the BEST decision we made for our wedding day (besides each other, of course!) I was working full-time, in graduate school full-time, and trying to plan the wedding. Because of her, I was able to truly relax, especially on our wedding day, and live in the moment which I am so grateful for. We can’t thank her enough for helping to make our wedding day exactly as we had hoped and dreamed it would be!

Event Prep is the best decision you can make for your wedding planning needs. Period. From the beginning vision phases, to the tough decision making moments, Cassandra is there not only as a seasoned professional but as a friend. There were times where I was at my wits end, and Cassandra became my place of peace and calm. She was always 10 steps ahead of the game and guided me in the right direction. She made me feel like my wedding was her only focus and her efforts showed through. My husband and guests were absolutely speechless at our ceremony and reception. They were truly blown away. None of it would've been possible without her. Simply put, Event Prep made my wedding dreams come true.

You will not be disappointed in your selection with Event Prep. Cassandra is the most professional, kind and bubbly spirit you’ll come in contact with.  We both have full time jobs and knew we would need all the extra help we could get.  Cassandra and Event Prep were the answers to my prayers! She made sure that we were all able to enjoy our day and not think twice about what needed to be accomplished. When I needed her, she was right there. I could not possibly fit a list of all the things Cassandra assisted with into this review. However, I can say she is a big reason I am able to look back on my wedding day with joy and happiness. Having the ability to focus on our guests and enjoy the most important day of our lives was priceless.
