Taking care of the guests seating can be a very time-consuming affair. Dividing the crowds in smaller groups and decide how to sit them at table is definitely a hard job.
But once you’ve dealt with this, creating a display for the escort cards is actually a fun thing to do!
Escort card boards are quite outdated. They are generally not very attractive and quite impersonal. Instead we now tend to display the individual cards in a very orderly way but on everything but a board…
Check this out, for example. The tree trunk is a perfect stand ….! Clearly this is a perfect display if your wedding has a bucolic feel to it ..immersed in nature, of course.
For a country-side wedding in a very elegant villa near Lucca, Italy, we liked to use a carpet of real grass over a table top.
