Wedding Escort Cards and Bridesmaids Gifts…

Hey there…we hope y’all are having a great week. Atlanta weather has been beautiful – although our temperature is dropping by the minute today. We certainly love the colder weather, even though not everyone in our households agree :)

Today’s post will showcase two more wedding projects. We are so glad that you have enjoyed reading these highlights of the Big Day :) We have enjoyed reading and answering your e-mails for more detailed information. We are glad to assist you in any way that we can!

Back at the beginning of the year we were already in wedding planning mode. We had an idea of what we wanted the look and feel to be for the wedding and the reception. We shared our visit to our friend Jim’s antique store – Black Bear Creek Antiques –  in Clayton, Georgia. You can read that entire post here.

Wedding Escort Cards - keeping with our vintage and rustic theme - antique skeleton keys were used as our escort cards that matched well with our DIY table numbers. The keys and cards were added to a large, moss covered frame.Jim procured a lot of skeleton keys for us so that we could choose the 60 keys that we needed for our wedding escort cards.

We printed out a sheet of cards on thick card stock and attached each key with jute.

The cards were attached onto a moss-covered frame, in alphabetical order so that each couple could easily find their key to their table.

We loved how they turned out – and they paired so well with our rustic table numbers. You can see that post here.

Bridesmaids Gifts…

Before leaving the hotel for the wedding and reception venue, each bridesmaid was given her gift…

A special map necklace was created for each bridesmaid. The vintage maps included the city in which I met each bridesmaid and also had a hand-stamped brass initial charm.

I wanted the gifts to be special, meaningful and something that each of my girls could use in their everyday lives.

They all loved their gifts…

I also have a necklace for myself. My hope is that each one of my bridesmaids remembers my special day – and our friendship – each time she wears her necklace.

    After having planned a wedding for our daughter last Thanksgiving, I can so appreciate the time and thought that went into the place cards and bridesmaids gifts!!! Like, SO appreciate! Those keys are NOT easy to find (I know), and figuring out the names and seating arrangement is a job in itself!!!
    Jennifer and Vicki, I hope the day was so very special for both of you.
    Thanks for sharing these personal, great, unique ideas!
