Wedding Wednesday: Escort Cards

DIY-ing things is a lot of hard work but it's also a lot of fun.
It adds personal touches to the things we're including in our wedding and I wouldn't have it any other way. I enjoy having a hand in creating so much of what we're doing and planning.

As the date slowly creeps closer and closer we realize we need to get a move on with some of the smaller things that we couldn't really do before.
In an effort to get a head start and not have to do everything the week before, we went out and bought the materials for our escort cards.
Everything except the stamp, which I bought on ebay about 6 - 8 months ago. Or more. 

I saw a really cute idea on pintrest a looooong time ago (right before I bought the stamp) that fit with our vineyard setting. The escort cards were written on wine cards and arranged on a cork board.
Like this image below.

We went to DeSeres and found these tags and bought up 120 of them.
We'll probably need another package but we'll wait and see.
For $1.99 a package you really can't go wrong.
We got white tags and cream coloured tags.

Using the stamp I bought and the two stamp pads (in pistacchio and violet) we bought from DeSeres, I got to stamping.
The end result looks a little something like this:


Guest's names will be written over top of the grape stamp along with their table number.

Hurray for DIY wedding stuff!
