When trying to keep your nuptials organized, assigned seating by way of escort cards can ensure guests a table and a seat to come back to and to leave their personal belongings at while they enjoy the party. In addition to their functionality, escort cards also serve as a beautiful introduction to what lays ahead in your reception decor! Most commonly escort card displays can be found during the cocktail hour so guests have time to mingle and find their seating prior to the start of the reception. A common and cost effective setup of bifold stationary with a guest name and table number can be accompanied with florals that match your centerpieces or just a simple candle light glow. A modern take on escort cards can allow for the names to be written on surfaces other than paper such as leaves for Fall weddings or river rocks for a natural feel or outdoor wedding. When placed in the center of a cocktail area or near a wedding guestbook, escort card settings can be a creative and interactive way to welcome your guests to your special day. We've attached a few creative inspiration images sourced via Pinterest for you to view below!

Although colors change from one wedding season to the next, there is always a consistent request for Rustic styled weddings every year. We love putting these together because it gives us an opportunity to get our creative juices flowing and give the whole room some personality with handmade decor items and displays giving your guests are very intimate and cozy feel. We have birdcages, furniture, etageres, wood stumps, vintage glass bottles and mercury bottles, dessert stands, metal bronze items, mercury vases, classic hardcover novels to use as part of the centerpiece, branches, trees, glass jewelry boxes and the list goes on! Check out the following images for some Rustic ceremony and reception images we've put together to inspire you for your upcoming event!
For a rustic wedding cake, add a bed of moss on a pedestal for an earthy feel, fondant designed to look like a chalkboard for that eclectic touch, and lots of fruit and foliage for a fresh look.
Leafy greens, mason jars, jute, twine, vines, tree stump slices and raw wood and fantastic elements to incorporate to give that homey feel.
For a rustic aisle and backdrop, use framed branches full of blooms to add a whisp of romance. Forget precision here and find beauty in perfect imperfection.
For a fun and eccentric spin on seating assignments, embed cards into branches on a board and surround with blooms! For family members, the bride and groom can assign seats on a family tree! Name tags attached to old fashioned keys could double as a favor.
For a take-home treat, a popcorn bar served out of wooden pails would be a hit with the kids and adults. Mini caramel cake pops, little syrup bottles, or mini jars of marmalade add a warm and sentimental touch.
For rustic florals, wispy greens with wild blooms and a slight pop of color among a neutral color palette is stunning! Boutonniers tied with twine are the perfect eye catching detail. Get in touch with us to start designing with these and other unique details for your special day. (Images sourced via Pinterest)
Table numbers are an often mundane detail that can provide a platform to add some personality to your table. It can be a fun way for a couple to get creative and express themselves. As always, the love is in the details.
For a classic or romantic look, these whimsical calligraphed table numbers are quite splendid to add to your table filled with blooms, candles and glassware.
The Rustic reception - Table numbers written on cork and wooden sections with leafy greens and earth tones.
For the vintage rustic look another option would be to do metal or brass table numbers on vintage hardcover books!

Nadia and Monti's Holud stage was encircled by a canopy of floral garlands over a tall backdrop of coral, salmon and champagne drapes. The garlands hung end to end in soft yellow and orange blooms. The ethereal stage was flanked with wicker floor seating and teal pillows.
The perfect amount of uplighting kept the stage aglow throughout the festivities. The wide stage allowed for all the family and friends to take turns applying turmeric and feeding sweets to the bride and groom. Vast floor seating and an open dance floor helped everyone sing and dance the night away.

Ameet and Michael's wedding was an elegant and luxurious affair! A gorgeous outdoor ceremony started off the day. The gazebo was adorned with large gilded vases overflowing with white hydrangea. Petite arrangements of blush-hued florals with hints of moss green decorated antique birdcages.
The blushing bride was perfectly complemented by a lush bouquet of veronica, roses and lisianthus.
The classy ceremony lead the way to a sophisticated ceremony as the guests made their way inside to the stunning ballroom. An escort card table displayed a large arrangement with tiered mercury glassware along with assorted mini arrangements. The array of blush toned florals was truly romantic.
The ballroom was glowing in lilac and the tables helped illuminate the room with candlelight. The centerpieces continued the theme of Victorian-chic elegance presented by the range of mercury glassware full of fresh buds. The lace embroidered linens provided the ideal neutral yet detailed accent. The couple enjoyed their first meal together from their sweetheart table decorated with tiers of florals and of course, lots of candlelight.

Soft pastels of mint, lavender, and pink illuminated Hareem and Omar's Nikah! Mercury vases were adorned with baby's breath and pink roses and rested on side tables clothed in mocha sequin fabric. Our classic cream sofa set sat in front of eggshell white, baby pink, and mint green drapes.
Mini arrangements hung in mercury vases with drop crystals on the mint green drapes in rows- it's all about the details. White pyramid embellishments displayed small florals with lisianthus through the glass. Complementing arrangements in a variety of silhouettes filled the gorgeous home.
