Right now I'm relaxing on a beach somewhere in Maui! Jay and I just got married last Saturday and I scheduled some wedding related posts for you this week in honor of our special day :) I hope you enjoy!
We wanted to do something a little different for our escort cards at the wedding. We got married on an organic farm and we we're really playing up the vintage vibe. The farm also has honey bees (on another property nearby) and they jar and sell their honey. We bought a bunch of jars in four flavors (raw, cocoa, mint and cinnamon) and I wanted to incorporate the escort cards to tie it all together.
I used some thick brown card stock, a large tag punch, mint bakers twine and the honey jars to create the final look. I used Adobe PhotoShop to create the tags using two different fonts. I made the last names larger so that our guests could easily find their jar. After I was happy with the font and size, I printed them on the card stock in a darker brown ink color. I then cut the card stock in to smaller pieces so I could use the punch to get the exact shape I wanted. After they were punched out I measured some bakers twine and tied it around the jars. So simple! It didn't take long at all.
After they were all put together I put the jars in vintage cocoa-cola crates that I found at an antique shop. I think these look great with our vintage theme and I am really happy how they came together!
Future brides: will you do something unique for your escort cards? What other DIY ideas do you have?
