Ombre blue escort card display board with envelopes

You picked the perfect centerpieces, designed gorgeous place settings and (finally!) arranged the perfect seating chart. But how to go about directing guests to their meticulously selected seats? Point them in the right direction with this escort card display that can be totally customized to your wedding style and guest list. We opted for a cool blue ombre look, but don't be afraid to get creative with a checkerboard or striped pattern. If you don't know the exact layout of your venue yet, fret not, because this display can be hung on a wall, sat on an easel or propped up on a table—basically it can work anywhere.
