Definately alaphabetize them by last name.  You don’t want folks hunting for their card. Alphabetizing them will make things easier.

Whether or not you want to make it formal with “Mr./Mrs./Ms.” in front of their name is up to you, just be sure to have their first and last name. 🙂

I alphabetized my escort envelopes by last name, and each couple was represented on the outside of an escort-card envelope (i.e. “Mr. and Mrs. John Doe”), and each single person was addressed by his or her individual name (i.e. “Ms. Jane Doe” or “Mr. John Doe.”)

You could still employ that method but, in addition to a card in side the envelope indicating the couple’s table number, you could include separate cards to indicate the specific meal selections (i.e. two cards that say “beef,” or one card that says “chicken,” another that says “fish.”)

If you are using escorts cards only (i.e. no escort envelopes to contain the cards), I would omit the courtesy titles altogether and just write each person’s full name. If you do decide that you want to use courtesy titles, the proper honorific for a married woman using her own  first name would be “Ms.” and not “Mrs.”
