How can you keep your guests engaged throughout the day of your wedding? If you think about it, there are moments when guests are left to wander your venue while waiting for you to finish taking photos or get changed after the ceremony. You can avoid dull moments at your wedding by making every part of the day extra fun for your guests, including how they are to find their seats and tables! Here are 10 creative escort card and seating chart ideas that will get your guests excited to find their tables.
(1) Give them a shot before looking for their seats. This will surely give them the jolt they need to start the rest of the festivities.

(2) If not a shot, you can give your guests a peek at what’s coming their way in the near future with a fortune cookie. You can include their seat number or table name at the back of the fortune.
