14 Edible (and Drinkable) Escort Card Ideas Your Guests Will Love

Tequila shots, anyone?
by The Knot

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 14 of our favorite ideas to get you started.

1. Marshmallows

Having a cozy winter affair? Marshmallows are an on-theme, tasty bite everyone will appreciate. 

2. Tequila Shots

Set the vibe immediately with individual tequila shots topped with lime slices.

3. Beer

Your guests will be happy to be instantly holding beers (and your bartenders will be relieved when they aren't immediately flooded with swaths of thirsty guests). 

4. Macarons

These soft, delicate (not to mention wildly Instagramable) French cookies definitely won't go to waste. 

5. Fresh Olive Oil

Guests can place these eye-catching bottles of olive oil in their kitchen to use for cooking or just décor. 

6. Apples

Apples provide a whimsical touch, bright pop of color and, best of all, they're super affordable. 

7. Cherries

Perfect for summer weddings, guests can toss a cherry in their drink (or mouth). 

8. Themed Sugar Cookies

Who doesn't love sweet sugar cookies? The sky's the limit with colors, shapes and designs. 

9. Sparkling Water or Juice

Make sure every guest (even the underage ones!) stays hydrated with some fruity sparkling water or juice. 

10. Table Number Cookies

Have dessert before dinner with this fun favor that doubles as a table number. 

11. Peaches

Whether you're in the South or not, fresh peaches are perfect for rustic affairs. 

12. Hot Sauce

Turn the heat up at your reception with mini bottles of your favorite hot sauce. 

13. Champagne

Get the party started right away with glasses of bubbly. 

14. Candy

Fill small jars or cute cups with bite-size candy for guests to munch on throughout the evening.
