25 Ideas for the Prettiest Calligraphed Escort Cards
When it comes to leading your guests to their seats, there are a couple of different options to choose from. You could go the creative route with your escort cards, or skip them altogether in favor of a seating chart. While there's endless ways to display seating assignments, there's one that will never go out of style: Calligraphed escort cards. In addition to being timeless and elegant (let's face it, calligraphy details lend a classic, elevated vibe to every aspect of your décor), they're also the perfect opportunity to show off your personality or your wedding theme. Some couples might choose to incorporate their color scheme into an entire display of escort cards, while others like the idea of giving theirs a double meaning by making their calligraphed cards favors as well.
Whatever you choose as your "card," finishing it with calligraphy immediately takes the display to the next level. From classic tented cards and marble slabs to those affixed to mini vases of flowers or tucked into beds of fresh fruit, there's a unique you way to use calligraphed escort cards in your wedding. See how real couples put a personalized spin on their calligraphed cards and get inspired for your own seating assignments!
