Continuing from my last post about our table numbers, we also decided to use map paper in our escort cards.
I had a really hard time deciding on what to do for escort cards. I really felt like this was a place I could be creative, and something that people would actually notice because, well, they literally have to look at the escort card display if they want to sit down to eat!
Most of my inspiration was travel/airplane themed…

But my favorite of them all was…
After doing the initial searching and pinning, I did what every procrastinating bride would do and forgot about it for a while. Then, one day while browsing Etsy, I came across these fun little dudes.

I revisited my inspiration pins and knew these had to be incorporated in our wedding. Off to Hobby Lobby I went, where I picked up a few bags of the tiniest clothes pins known to man.
(Personal photos from here on out.)
And so began my journey of gluing 200 tiny little paper airplane cutouts onto 200 tiny little clothespins.
Meanwhile, at the tiniest airport in the universe…
I even mocked up some of our escort cards to get the full effect.
I have yet to determine how we will be displaying the little planes as guests arrive at the reception, but I will definitely have a wine glass or two present so people get the idea. Mr. Plane is totally convinced no one will use these little guys on the edge of their drink glasses, which might be true. But even if that is the case, these things are so gosh darn cute, you might end up seeing one in my up-do at some point during the reception!
Did you do traditional escort cards? Be honest — do you think any of my guests will decorate their beverages with little plane clips?
