I am not a fan of wedding favors. I find them wasteful and oftentimes a total oversight. However, with that being said, I am a fan of wedding favors when they are well thought out and serve a significant purpose. Wedding favors that can double as escort cards are just that. They are resourceful while providing a personal touch that your guests can take home with them. I’ve compiled a few of my favorite non-paper escort card trends below.
We’ve all seen the custom mini-champagne bottles that serve as favor cards, but take it one step further and tailor it to your theme. These vintage soda bottles with personalized labels and camping thermoses with name tags are a super rad fit for the ‘Burgers’ and ‘Summer Camp’ themes.
Tiled, sea and modern shaped glasses all provide a very different aesthetic, each appropriate for a different kind of event. However, the overall aesthetic the hand written calligraphy provides is elegant and whimsical, perfect for a touch of romance to any wedding or event.
Whether you are hosting a casual dinner or an elegant affair, trinkets of all shapes and sizes can be used as a seating indicator. I especially love the arts and crafts feel that the engraved leather strips and azurite rocks have. But the clear glass boxes with name cards and greenery sprigs are easily repurposed at home. A cassette tape can be a great throwback gift, and host a few of your favorite songs to be played throughout the evening as well, to serve as a wonderful reminder of how fun your reception was.
All in all, it’s really up to your own imagination to create something unique to your personal style. But I’d love to help you along the way! Drop a line in the comment box below and let us know your ideas for your favor-escort cards.
