One thing about Meghan and I, we like unique! Traditional is great, it's worked for many years, and if your wedding is traditional, then by all means place folded cardstock with your guests names written on it, and place it on a table! Done. But, that's just not our style. The escort cards needed to serve two purposes, seat people and add to the decor of the wedding. After searching the internet for countless hours we found the perfect idea; A large poster of Philadelphia, cut into rectangles, mounted onto foam board with each persons name written under the poster. We found the idea on theknot.com. The poster served as a piece of art! Before dinner they would pull off their piece of the poster and on the back was their table name. It worked perfectly!
