I didn’t put couples on the placecards, just individuals.  When I sent out invitations, they were "Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Smith" and so on.  The placecards just say Joseph Smith, Ellen Smith, Carol Jones, etc.

I would probably go with the formal way for everyone. Mr. and Mrs. HisFirstName HisLastName for everyone. I think that is the proper way anyway. And especially since your wedding is a Saturday night black tie optional (so is mine). I think it’s better to upgrade the formality on the night of the wedding instead of downgrading it.

Do you mean place cards or escort cards? Escort cards should be 1 per married couple, so I would address them how you addressed the invitations. Place cards should be one per person.

For us (also a black tie optional, Saturday night wedding), I did Mr. and Mrs. Joe and Jane Smith on the invites (and will also do this on the escort cards), and Mr. Joe Smith on the placecards (one for each person, so Mrs. Jane Smith would also get her own).

i agree with rebecca–for a more formal wedding include the Mr or Mrs or Ms or Dr in front of the individuals name!
