Being a crafty lady I wanted to do something fun and different for my escort cards. My wedding theme is basically summed up in five words: Vintage Victorian Lace and Burlap which goes nicely with our venue. We are getting married in a Victorian-style historic home that is decorated with fireplaces, beautiful pastels and intricate crown molding. In keeping with the vintage theme I found some really cute ideas on Pinterest for escort cards. The one I decided to do was pinned from Bridal Musings.

It was super easy to create. First I stamped little fleur de lis in the corners of all the tags. Then I wrote the guest’s name and table number underneath. Before I did this, though, I practiced on a scrap piece of paper so I didn’t waste any tags. Then I simply tied the key to the tag with a bow using my pretty “happily ever after” ribbon and voila!

I will be displaying the keys on a small table with a sign that I created that says “Please find the key to your table and choose a seat.” Hopefully everyone will enjoy this unique twist to the plain old white escort cards!
