I’m planning on using escort cards to tell my guests which table they’re assigned to. Should I make one for each person or for each couple? They won’t be something that could double as a place card, so I’m not sure if everyone gets his or her own or not. Advice?

If they’re not being used as place cards as well, I would make one for each couple. Saves you making so many, and if they are arriving together and sitting at the same table, they only need one. If you make two, you might have momentary panic as people think that you might have seated them separately!

my florist told me that it’s usually 1 per couple if they’re married and separate cards if they’re dating, and my mom agreed!

I agree with rebecca
1 per married couples and 1 each for everyone else

What if you don’t know the name of the guest??

I call and find out the name of the guest, but if you can’t (or they aren’t sure who they are bringing) I would just put Ms. Friend and Guest

I made one for each person, just because I did them ahead of time, and there was no guarantee that both members of each couple were coming.
I’d probably find out the names of guests as well… certainly my way wouldn’t work with ‘loose’ guests =P
Either way is probably fine =)

Was wondering the same thing. Thanks for the info.

Welcome! I’m making ours all for individuals. I think it’ll make things easier on me. Since I won’t have to worry how big or small to change the font on my printer depending on if there is one or two people on the card. I don’t think I’ve been to a wedding in the last few years that I was on a card as a couple, even though I’ve been with my FI for three years now, we were on separate cards.

I think doing 1 per married couple is fine, but definitely 2 for the single but dating people :o)

I am doing the guest and +1 together on one card. Trying to save a little paper where we can.

We’re doing one per person, since the color or design will signify to the servers which meal they’re getting. But I think it’s ok to put couples together! Surely they’ll sit next to each other anyways.

We’re making escort “cards” out of wood – a la this bride on The Knot. We’re writing the names with sharpie on the wood (instead of printing it on paper like in the example,) and I’m going to do one per person, not per couple. I think either way would work – we didn’t really think about it all that much, to be honest!

@Ashlop- I am having place cards in a frame which will be a favor as well, what if for some reason I cant find out the name of the guest? What will their frame card say as an individual one?
