10 Escort Card and Seating Chart Displays to Inspire your Wedding Reception

Escort card and seating chart displays are often an overlooked element of a wedding reception. If you’ve taken the time to agonize over a custom seating chart for your guests then the escort card display is something you’ll want to put some thought into! The escort card or seating chart display is the perfect time to showcase your personality or something special that you and your new spouse share in common. Or, perhaps the display simply ties into the wedding theme and design. Get creative and think outside of the box for this detail of your wedding reception. If you need a little inspiration to get your creative juices flowing, we’re sharing some of our favorite escort cards and seating chart displays from the last year! Be sure to check out the vendors featured for even more ideas.

1. Our Favorite People in our Favorite Places:

This beautifully crafted escort card display is lifesize and draws the eyes of everyone in the room! Or, outside in this case. Designed by Sweet Zion Paperie and First Look Events, this escort card display showcases the bride and groom’s favorite places. Each place has a custom drawing near it, and guests are represented by custom stemless champagne glasses! Cheers to the new couple as you find your way to your seat! What a great way to share something about yourself with all of those you love and care about.

2. Custom Seating Chart Vases:

This beautiful setup was featured in the 2019 Colorado Fall/Winter Magazine. Designed by Sweet Zion Paperie, this seating chart was displayed at a styled wedding shoot at The Broadmoor’s Cloud Camp. The earth tone vases blend in well with the surrounding elements, while also serving the purpose of displaying what table each guest is assigned too! Simple, yet elegant.

3. Moscow Mules Escort Card Display:

We love an interactive escort card display, especially when it involves Moscow Mules! Guests can grab a drink to go. Sip and mingle while finding your seat. Choose a common staple for the drink or opt for you and your significant other’s go-to happy hour cocktail.

This fun setup was designed by Michelle Leo Events for a Utah Wedding.

6. Sophisticated Lifesize Statement Seating Chart:

This lifesize seating chart is bold, sophisticated and makes one heck of a statement! We love the sleek, black color that was chosen for the background. It stands out. The candles and greenery add a nice elegant touch. Opt for a lifesize seating chart because, well, frankly they’re easier to read! Guests will be able to locate their name and seating assignment much quicker.

7. Acrylic Seating Chart:

This stunningly chic acrylic seating chart is breathtaking. This seating chart element was created to mirror the ghost chairs used for seating in the reception area and elevated the wedding theme by incorporating florals and moody candles from the tablescapes. Creating a cohesive design is the key to planning an unforgettable wedding day.

9. Floral Inspired Escort Card Display:

This Sun Valley, Idaho escort card display is breathtaking. This display was inspired by the flora of the valley. The escort cards had alternating watercolor painted wildflowers above calligraphed names. Combined with the stunning floral arrangements that surrounded it, the entire display was a show stopper! Let the beauty of your surroundings, the natural world, inspire not only your wedding day but the love you have for your significant other. Nourish your relationship and watch it flourish.
