There are plenty of creative ways to arrange an escort card display filled with expertly calligraphed cards or name tags, but we have to admit—there’s a special place in our hearts for edible escort cards. For starters, they can double as favors, and they're also good for curbing any hunger pangs that might creep in before dinner.

Look to your wedding theme to inspire your escort cards or tap a seasonal, local treat, like fresh apples from a nearby orchard or hot sauce from a favorite local restaurant. Here are 10 of our favorite ideas to get you started.

1. Macarons
