Please take your seat...

Yesterday marked the 6-Month-Count-Down to Ryan and Angela's Wedding. We are moving along according to schedule, having booked all of our venues and vendors. Currently, we're hammering out the smaller details relating to the DIY projects we will be taking on.

As many of our projects require unique materials, we're searching high and low to acquire the right pieces. The rustic and romantic ambiance we strive to achieve will be accomplished through the personalized details catering to Ryan and Angie.

. . .

In the coming weeks I will assemble various options for ceremony and reception decor. Below are several rustic options for our escort cards:



  • Left: I love this option from a Victorian & nature inspired wedding {sharing your colour palette} featured on Brooklyn Bride. The understated elegance of the rustic burlap and pretty ribbon have a lovely effect. I see this option within an over sized antique frame [maybe with mini clothes pins?]
  • Right: The second ribbon option is equally as stunning. It was used in one of my most favorite weddings ever featured on snippet & ink. I think it might be a perfect solution to mask the 'office window' in our reception entrance. What do you think?


  • Left: I've been a fan of the amazing details of this wedding on a The Bride's Cafe for some time. I just adore the look of this vintage door: stunning. [See a close up of the details].
  • Right: Always great for inspiration, this knot wedding ingeniously adapted old shutters into an escort card display. How lovely would either option look propped against a wall in the entrance?


  • Left & Bottom Right: The following green-inspired options would also work within our space. These Knot weddings one & two use traditional escort cards on beds of fresh grass.
  • Top Right: This idea is just one great detail of many from this wedding featured on With This Ring.... The pretty green glass pebbles in flute vases can double as favors.

Ryan & Angie
: I think antique & vintage pieces [whether they be frames, doors, shutters, or window panes] would work perfectly, accentuating the wood prevalent in our venue. The idea of reusing and re purposing items really appeals to me.

I'd love to hear your thoughts.

I had my table cards in wheatgrass and loved it! I love that first option as well.

We LOVE the grass idea...it's ridiculously cute and would definitely fit our decor...the other one we love is the first one inside a large antique frame, as we both love things victorian (and it would like nice by the vase with the wiggly willow)...tough call!

I LOVE the second option. Very rustic and romantic at the same time! The third is really great, a little more on the modern side. I love them all and I'm sure whatever you all decide to go with will be beautiful!

Thank you for all of your feedback, everyone.

It's hard to choose between such great ideas, isn't it? I am glad you like these options.
