3 Showstopping Wedding Escort Card DIYs

Escort cards (aka name cards, place cards) set the scene for your wedding reception, and it's easy as pie to transform something ordinary (or unexpected) into something extraordinary! All you need is a little creativity and craftiness! The December issue of Martha Stewart Living gave me three wonderful ideas for do it yourself escort cards, and I couldn't wait to share them with you!

Stitch 'em - If you know your way around a sewing machine (sadly, I do not), this DIY idea is perfect for you! Just run pre-trimmed escort cards through the sewing machine individually to add an embellished edge that will surely wow guests!

3 unique wedding ideas for escort cards Embossed

via Martha Stewart Living

Emboss 'em - Love sparkling metallics and the luxe look of embossing? We do too! And it's easier than you think to incorporate both into your handmade wedding escort cards. All you need is soft copper sheets, a steady hand, and blocks of painted wood, stone, or any flat, hard surface to attach the embossed copper nameplates to.

Gild 'em - Another brilliant idea for our metallic loving brides! Imitation gold leaf can transform just about anything, including card stock, real fruit, twigs, branches, vases, you name it! And gilded gold escort cards will have all your guests talking (and swooning)!

Which of these DIY escort card ideas would you love to try? Have you considered homemade place cards for the reception to save a chunk of your wedding budget?
