The most underappreciated (and sweetest) of details

Escort cards aren't something you see all that often in Australian  weddings. It's a pity really, because they can be the sweetest of little details.  

If you're not sure what an escort card is (and most Aussies haven't heard of them), they're akin to an interactive seating chart.  Guests find their card with their table number and take it with them before they head over to their table to find their place.  Escort cards aren't a replacement for place cards, although they can replace your more traditional seating chart. 

The lovely thing about escort cards is they can  a) be gorgeously styled to tie in with your overall look b) by incorporating them you will ensure your wedding stands out and c)  they add a fun, interactive element to your day for your guests to enjoy. 

Options for escort cards are really only limited by your imagination.  So, to spark some creative thoughts, we have found some of the prettiest, sweetest escort card ideas together for you.  Enjoy! And, make sure you read to the end, because the last two are our favourites!
