French Inspired Wedding (Series 1 of 2)

You don’t have to travel to Europe to have the wedding of your dreams. Elegant, romantic, and airy elements can turn any venue into a vision of the French countryside. Color palettes of white, pale gray, and soft pink accented with timeless pieces makes for one breathtaking wedding. We love the idea of having a champagne tower with elegant crystal glasses, or adding some macaroons to your dessert display! Take a look at these photos for inspiration for your own wedding!

Reception Seating: Escort Cards (2 of 2)

Escort cards are placed on display at the entrance of your reception and include the names of your guests and the table you have assigned them to as well as their meal choice if applicable. They are a great way for guests to easily find their names as they are categorized in alphabetical order. This allows guests to choose their seats by placing their cards at the table. Escort cards can be a great opportunity to showcase your unique style during the first look into your reception!

Make your cards noteworthy by writing on something other than the usual cardstock, or by settling them into coffee grounds or pieces of wood surrounded by foliage. Adding details to your escort card design can express your personality and add to your guests’ experience which will not go unnoticed. Check out these photos for inspiration!

Reception Seating: Table Assignment Charts (1 of 2)

Creating a table assignment display can be a great way to add a big statement to your reception decor. Not only does it create a simple, organized way for everyone to find their tables, it gives you a chance to add a piece of art to your wedding! When they arrive at their table you would then have a name card at each place setting with their first name, another stylized detail to be able to layer into your tablescape design.

Get creative with your table assignment display by writing on a piece of glass for a clean modern look, or by using old books to add a romantic and enchanting feel to your fairytale. Adorning frames with foliage and flowers or incorporating a calligraphy will really top it off. Take a look at these ideas for inspiration for your own table assignment chart!
