15 Unique Ways to Help Your Wedding Guests Find Their Seat

You’ve planned everything for your wedding to a tee. Your color palette has come together in a way you never imagined. The food truck you always wanted is booked and your DIY table centerpieces look like a million bucks. What’s left to think about? Table numbers and escort cards. Some brides choose not to have seating arrangements, but if that’s your thing, we want to give you a variety of ideas — one of which is bound to go with your theme. From origami to bundles of lavender and little trinkets your guests can take home with them, here’s 15 ways to help your guests find their seat.

1. Glass and Gold Picture Frame: Mmm hmmm, we sure love the white tablecloth paired with the white candles. The table number here is super simple, and the glass frame really lets the bouquet of flowers and all the white do the talking. (via Either and Smith / Style Me Pretty)

2. Old Book Moss Garden: Who woulda thought a book could take the place of a terrarium or a pot? This little moss garden is super creative and doesn’t just act as a table number — it’s a conversation-starting centerpiece as well. (via Emmaline Bride)

3. Lavender Bundles: Choosing one of your favorite scents to package and give to your guests is a very personal touch that we love. If you’re a fan of lavender, you can tie it in throughout the rest of the floral arrangements to bring everything together. (via The Lane)

4. Key Escort Card: This escort card is very theme specific and can really showcase your antique style. These keys are more than just vintage trinkets, though. They’re bottle openers! Booya. (via Al Gawlik / The Knot)

5. Potted Succulent Escort Card: Succulents have been trending for a while now, and we’re pretty sure they’re here to stay. That being said, giving each guest a succulent with their name on it is fabulous! Friends and family will remember your big day every time they look at this plant at home.

6. Tagged Mini Pumpkins: We’re going to state the obvious and say this is perfect for a fall or Thanksgiving wedding. Heck, even if it’s spring, people go crazy over mini pumpkins. The quick poem is a nice touch as well, for a fun way to give directions to your guests. (via Emily Wren Photography / The Knot)

7. Surfboard Table Directory: If you’re a beach bride and you’re looking to incorporate a few surfboards for a subtle hang ten vibe, this is exactly how to do it. You should also notice that the tables aren’t just numbered — they’re named after Hawaiian beaches. Details, people, details. (via Mod Wedding)

8. Origami Escort Cards: Our biggest tip for doing origami is to give yourself a lot of time to get it done (if you’re DIY-ing it). This is one of those projects that looks really good once it’s done, but getting to the finish line can be extremely time consuming. (via My Wedding)

9. Potted Plants: Super rustic with a slight boho feel, these potted plants are adorable. Paired with an outdoor or summer wedding, we think these would be an absolute showstopper. Plus, you can always give the plants away at the end of the night. (via Lavender and Twine / Style Me Pretty)

10. Miniature Tequila Bottle Escort Cards: Talk about starting the party off right. Greeting guests with miniature tequila (or any booze) bottles really sets the tone for your reception and will likely get everyone in the party mood. Trust us: This is a good thing. (via Amber Gress / Ruffled Blog)

11. Champagne Flute Escort Cards: Incorporating your signature drink into your escort cards checks two boxes at once — they give your guests a cocktail and tell them where to sit. Done and done. This is what elegance looks like, BTW. (via Vue Photography / June Bug Weddings)

12. Rustic Clothes Pin Board: We’re digging this for two reasons. One, this particular style accentuates the theme of this wedding, which is a woods-y, rustic feel. Two, it can almost double as a piece of art. This is one of the first things guests will see when they walk in the door, and we think it’s an eye-catcher. (via Barrie Anne Photography / One Wed)

13. Mossy Numbers: These are big and bold, but the character of the vintage book brings it together so the number doesn’t look out of place or random. A few flowers and some votives with this, and voila! (via A Brit & A BlondeStyle Me Pretty)

14. Backless Clothes Pin Board: This is a similar concept to number 12, but instead of being backed by a chalk board, it’s open air. Little details like the hearts on the clothes pins and sprigs of green show how different brides can interpret what is, generally, the same idea. (via Studiokel Photography / Junebug Weddings)

15. Wine Bottle Table Number: We had to include a wine bottle centerpiece/table number, because it’s been such a huge trend for so long now. We really love how this bride painted her bottles gold sans label and utilized the cork to hold the table number. Crafty. (via Dan Stewart / June Bug Weddings)
