Here's a smart way to trim the costs of your escort-card presentation and your centerpiece budget in one fell swoop. For a September wedding at Beltane Ranch in Glen Ellen, California, this bride attached escort cards to bud vases that each held a single dainty bloom, so when guests took them to their tables, the vases could also serve as decor. "This look made sense for our intimate, whimsical celebration, which took place in farm country," explains the bride, who chose cheery red and pink dahlias, daisies, and bright yellow craspedias. "The bud vases were from my florist, who sourced them at Cultural Intrigue, and our cards were from San Fran stationer Hello! Lucky. At the end of the night, guests could take them home as favors if they felt like it," she says.
