In all my planning, it’s funny the things that seem so minor that turn into such a big deal for me. One of these, has always been ….. escort cards!
Honestly, until I got engaged, I did not know the difference between seating cards and escort cards. I am pretty sure that I am not alone in this. Right? (See here for a simple and easy explanation if you’re unsure like I was!)
I knew that I wanted really cool escort cards. And I wanted to somehow tie in our “nautical” theme. I didn’t want just cards on a table, I wanted something fun.
Here were a few of the ideas I was loving 🙂

I also knew that I wanted something that I could DIY. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on paper products, because let’s be honest, people don’t save their escort cards. I also thought about attaching them to a favor, something like this:

I absolutely LOVE them. And they were honestly, so easy to make. Granted, I have to make 175 of them, so I’m sure I’ll be cursing myself soon, but I’m so excited to get them all finished!
