I made an assigned seating chart and escort cards – my question is, do the escort cards have to have the table numbers on them???

@Mint2Bee: i put the table numbers on my escort cards. i didn’t have a chart too though. the guest tables then had place cards.

@Mint2Bee: How else would the person know what table they were at when the picked up their escort card?

I would assume so… Otherwise how are people going to know where to sit?

What is the point of an escort card if it doesn’t have a table number on it?

the escort card is dictating to the person at which table to sit.

@Mint2Bee: It generally is the best move to put the table number or name on the card. Or you could do a seating chart. You could also separate things into groups on a table with like table 1 guests in one area and line them up in front of the sign, etc etc.

@Mint2Bee: Most people do either a seating chart, a place card, or an escort card. I think you are getting a little mixed up by having both a seating chart and escort card. You don’t need both, but if that’s your plan, I would still put the table number on the escort card.

I think generally you do the seating chart OR the escort cards. The card is to tell people which table to sit at, so having one without a number seems a little pointless?

@Mint2Bee: Do one or the other,I think both is just waste of time

@Sea_Ashley: @BrandNewBride: @pixiecat: @ajillity81: she said she did a seating chart AND escort cards, therefore they wouldn’t need the the number as the chart would tell them
@Mint2Bee: I would assume you need placecards for your caterer so they know who is eating what? if that’s the case, I would have the placecards on the tables ahead of time and have people look at the chart to find their table number. If you hadn’t already made a pretty chart then I would say forego the chart and just use the cards and put the table numbers on them.
