Seating charts are important - after all, you don't want your big day ruined by Uncle Murphy and Cousin Scott hashing it out over the cake course. Seating charts, however, are a bit ridged and might leave guests feeling option-less. What if Uncle Murphy doesn't like seat 2 at his table? Another chance for a cake catastrophe?!
That's where escort cards come in handy. They do not restrict guests to specific seats, but they still direct them to the right tables. Their casual demeanor will set a perfectly laid back tone, letting guests feel comfortable and confident.
Other pluses: they can communicate your wedding's theme and they can double as a favor for guests. If you're still doubtful, keep scrolling and I bet you'll be saying "I DO" to escort cards by the end.
