Beach Escort Cards for a Shore Wedding

Escort cards are a great way to show your personality and get creative. They can be simple to make on your own and cost effective. Today, we're going to share some of our favorite shore themed escort cards!

Starfish Cards

Creating this look is very simple! Have a calligrapher or a friend with amazing handwriting write the cards out for you. Using a hole puncher, punch a hole at the top of the cards to attach the starfish using ribbon. There are plenty of sites to purchase starfish but HERE is an Esty shop where you can buy them in bulk. Then all you need is a tray from Michaels and some sand!

Beach Badge Cards

Guests tables can each represent a beach town and your escort cards can match in the form of a badge. Websites like Shore Chic can create these for you- the best part is, they are very affordable at $2.99 each!


You can purchase driftwood specifically for crafts so they are flat and smooth. HERE is one Etsy listing for them, but there are many! Photo from Once Wed.

Surfboard seating chart

If you or your love are big water sports fans, you can incorporate a surfboard into your décor and use it to share tables numbers with guests. Photo from

Sand Dollar

Another simple one to create- Sand Dollar Escort Cards! They can be purchased from Shore Chic and then you can either use a calligrapher or someone you know with nice handwriting!

Sea Glass Display

Sea Glass is definitely trickier to write on, but we still love it! Instead of trying to write names on it, try creating a sea glass display in a tray for your escort cards. This is something already built in at The State Room in LBI but you can create the look yourself with seaglass that you have collected or purchased from a craft store like Michael's.

Mini Umbrellas

Mini umbrella's in sand are a great reminder of sunny days at the beach! These are so cheap and can be made into escort cards by simply attaching a tag. Photo: Martha Stewart, Charles Maraia
