So I’m trying to have something like this picture for our place cards, but we only have 80/85 people in total. That said, to fill up the space I was going to give each guest their own card as oppsosed to Mr. & Mrs. Jones just on one.
Is that incorrect etiquette or does it really not matter? Based on the pic I found online, it looks like everyone is on their own card. I only question such a thing b/c I or my SO have always been included on one card.

The weddings I’ve always been to have each person on their own place card.

we had everyone’s food choice on their seating card so we did one per person. we had 120 people.
do it either way you want, it is your wedding.

BurlapnLace: I was actually under the impression you are supposed to do a card for each person. Maybe I’m wrong though?

Each person should have their own card IMO.

BurlapnLace: These are not placecards though. They are escort or seating cards, used to find your table assignment. Placecards are found on the table in front of your place setting.

Westwood: kimmo416: anneh1990: Interesting and good to know! Every wedding I’ve ever been to, both myself and whoever I was with were on one card or were an “and guest”. It got me wondering if that’s the “way you do it”. I guess anything goes, though!

BurlapnLace: I’ve seen it done both ways and never thought twice about it. I think if anything, it would only be an issue of how to address people with salutations, etc, and you can easily make a card “Mrs. Mary Smith”

blushpink10: Yeah, I’d avoid that altogether and just have first and last names. No big deal. 🙂
