Programs

Whether you choose to have individual programs printed, or a large sign with all the details for guests to read as they enter, wedding ceremony programs are a wonderful way to share all sorts of details. Keep it simple with just the order of events, add pizazz with an illustration or make it fun with a thank you note or even fun facts about your bridal party!

Place Cards

Place cards go hand-in-hand with your seating chart, denoting exactly where at the table each guest should sit and welcoming that person to their seat. A hand-calligraphed place card adds a touch of class!

Escort Cards

What’s the difference between place cards and escort cards? While place cards are found on the tables, escort cards are another kind of seating chart where guests find their name and pick up their own place card from the wall (to then escort them to their table). We love both options!

Koozies

To have and to hold and to keep your drink cold! Koozies put the fun in functionality, and your guests will appreciate both! An opportunity to carry on your wedding theme, emblem or monogram, koozies are one place where really anything goes, even if your event is more formal.

Ring Bearer + Flower Girl Signs

Watching the ring bearer and flower girl walk down the aisle is always an aww-inducing moment. Bring a little laughter to this moment with a cheeky sign for the little ones to carry – as seen in this example, it can still be beautiful and elegant!

 

Other Day-Of Wedding Essentials and Finishing Touches

Signage and stationery (more than just the invitation – anything involving words on display!) are often-overlooked but oh-so-important wedding day essentials and contribute to the overall hospitality your guests feel as part of your big day. It’s the little things that make an impression! Overwhelmed by the options and not sure exactly what you’ll need? Reach out to a professional Oklahoma calligrapher to assist and make the details of your dreams come true. Cheers!
