I was wondering if it would be appropriate to put “Mr. and Mrs. So-and-so and Family” on a place card (or escort card? not sure of the difference). I want to do this instead of making a seperate card for each individual person in the family. They all live together, it’s two parents and three teenage kids.
I have to hand write them onto the paper because ink from the printer won’t stick to the paper that I want to use. So I wanted to get a head start on these. And would rather not do a million more than I have to. Thanks so much for your help, bees!

At a wedding, you usually have many relatives with the same last name. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it though.
You could just do a seating chart, without placecards where people sit where they wish at a particular table.

Sure. I’ve been to weddings where DH and I were on the same escort card so I think that would be fine! If you were doing place cards, then they’d need to be separate, obviously.

@AB Bride: Yeah, I think I meant escort cards. Not the one that’s at your plate, but the one that tells you what table you are at. We are not doing place cards. I know that other people will have the same last name, but if it’s a family that all lives together, I was wondering if it would be ok to do. Hopefully it is!

Most people don’t do escort cards here, so I can’t really help out with that. I have no clue!

- Wedding: April 2014 - Italian Villa
the wedding I went to most recently, everyone that was on the same invite was on the same escort card (though there weren’t escorts- we just plucked them off the tree ourselves and found the numbered tables)
i think your way is fine

sounds goodto me. It will probably be alot easier for them as well rather than a familyof 5 looking for seperate cards and taking up the area aroun the cards creating a bottle effct. Do it however you want and people will just go with it, I think you have a good idea

I think multiple people on one escort card is fine as long as they’re family or partners and at the same table.
