I’m currently mail merging my escort card and undecided if I should write formal titles such as Mr. Mrs. Dr. etc
It’s a nice formality, how often to people get to use these?
Perhaps we can have fun with our friends by titling them Lord, Lady, Your Honorable, etc. But maybe some of the older adults might think this is too silly
It’s much easier to scan an find your name without the extra bit at the beginning-p we like simplicity and try to avoid the pompous

The easier you can make them to read, the quicker guests can find them/get to their seats. (“M&R” was our “logo”-our initials)

In my opinion, you don’t necessarily have to use Mr. or Mrs., but if someone is an MD (not a phD~for some reason that title of “Dr.” is not used in social situations) you need to use the title of Dr. It’s my understanding that that is what is socially proper.
Same thing with military rankings for officers. We had several retired military at our wedding and we made it a point to write the titles out on the escort cards.
I wouldn’t use the Lord, Lady, etc titles you mentioned. Unless your theme is some sort of very obvious renaissance type of affair.
Organize your escort cards on the table by last name and you’re guests will know how to find their last names. Better to err on the side of more respectful than not.

I will just put Bob Smith or whatever the name is. Then go alphabetical (last name probably) and they will have no issue finding their names.

Thanks for the thoughts. I’m dropping off the escort cards to the venue next week and have to send them by table, so won’t get the option of alphabetizing how I see fit.
Asked my guy, and he said just the names. 🙂
