Howdy, ladies! We have a really fun week coming up, where we’ll be unveiling the top ten finalists in our first Ultimate Southern Challenge. A few weeks back we asked y’all to submit your best ideas for the most Southern and inspiring escort card design, and we were blown away by the submissions! We’ve decided to post the top ten this week, and the winner (who gets Southern Weddings bragging rights!) will be determined by reader popularity (i.e. the number of comments on their post) and the opinion of the SW editors. So let’s get cracking!
First up is photographer and all around crafty gal Emily Steffen, who submitted adorable homemade barbecue sauce and spice rub escort cards!
I imagined a backyard wedding with the couples’ favorite food and desserts to share! So, why not use their favorite BBQ sauce and rub to double as a gift and escort card for the guests?
Materials: vintage milk jars, corks (JoAnn Fabrics), small baggies for spice rub (JoAnn Fabrics), paper for printed tags, twine or ribbon of choice, barbecue sauce (family recipe), spiced seasoning rub (family recipe)
Thank you so much, Emily! Your escort card idea sounds absolutely delicious. Readers, if you love Emily’s idea, please chime in in the comments! This isn’t really voting, per say, so you’re welcome to comment on more than one finalist.
We’ll be back with our next ideas soon!
