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.

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”
