Sailboat Wedding Escort Cards

I was pretty lax when it came to wedding planning. So much so, that a few months before the Big Day, I suddenly realized I had given it that little special touch – ENTER SAILBOAT ESCORT CARDS.

I immediately called my sister with my new brilliant idea – knowing she could make it work somehow. She said Origami. I called her dumb, for the first time completely and utterly disappointed in my artistically gift and creative sister… She was right. I was wrong. I had to call her back and apologize not even a day later:

Honestly, it was A LOT of work. I mean, A LOT. Even more so in the midst of wedding planning. It took FOREVER to find the right size and color origami paper, then I personally folded about 150 of these puppies, then after finding the perfect markers – I wrote all of the names and table numbers on them. Don’t get me wrong, it was definitely worth it – but I was not prepared for what I was getting myself into.

All in all, definitely recommend this to anyone else. If you have the money though – it might be worth letting someone else do the work. I have been thinking about adding Origami Sailboat Escort Cards to Sailor Sister’s Etsy, but am still undecided — I don’t know if my marriage would last through anymore origami! haha

The Origami Sailboat Pattern I used is here:
