I can’t really help you with the size as that’s really up to you and your preferences. Some people attach escort cards to favors or a decorative element like apples or vintage keys. Just depends.  

As for how to handle guests…I always like to know who is coming, so I would just reach out to the groomsmen and ask for their guest’s name.  I did that before I sent out invites, so I could put the guest’s name on the inner envelope and not “and guest.”  

Are you having a plated meal with assigned seating or just assigned tables?

I was planning to print them on cardstock and cut and fold them myself but then i discoverd the pre scored tent cards by staples and I bought those instead. Now all I have to do is print on them, separate them and then rubber stamp them

Here’s what I’m doing: I ordered these place cards in my main wedding color (purple) and two kinds of card stock in my accent color – one a dark orange and one a lighter, shimmery orange. I cut rectangles of the dark orange a little smaller than the place card, and I cut the shimmery orange a little smaller than the dark orange. I rounded the corners of both of these and I will glue them together on the placecard, so the darker orange forms a nice border around the shimmery orange. I have terrible penmanship and I don’t think my printer can handle 105 lb. cardstock so I’m just using clear labels that I’ll print with my guests’ names and table number.

As far as the names of guests, people should be writing the name of their plus one on the RSVP card. If they don’t, it’s fine to call them and ask!
