Take a Seat
 
There are many cutesy options for this that you can find on sites like Pinterest, but you may wish to make it more personalized. Instead of saying “Pick a seat, not a side” here are some great twists:

     

  • “Pick a Seat, Not a Side: Either Way it’s For a Bride”
  • “<–Grooms Side …… Grooms Side –>”
  • Use the names to indicate sides
  • Use pictures of the future newlyweds

 
Escort Cards and Wedding Favors
 
One idea that could double as escort cards and wedding favors is a little planted succulent plant. These little favors are great for lasting longer than bubbles or other small trinkets. These even have great symbolism behind them.
 
Another great idea is to send them home with a candle that is rainbow colored in order to show off your pride!
