I diyed my escort cards, and they took a lot of time so I decided to give one to each couple. Less work for me!

I put married couples on the same card, but couples who were dating I did seperately.

Our escort ‘card’ is going to be a chalkboard with names and their table numbers next to it.  We are going to do it by couple or family and not by individual.  That’s also the way I’ve seen it done at two other weddings.

So, even though you are doing escort cards, I don’t see why you can’t do it by couple or family.

We did couples on our escort cards. If you’re DIYing them, it would take a ton of time to do one for each person. Plus the way I look at it, as soon as people find their table, they throw out the card anyway. Might as well save yourself time and money by condensing as much as possible!

Yep, like most others I did couples/families on the same card and it went very smoothly 🙂

Yup–you can put an entire family or a couple on an escort card so long as they’re all sitting at the same table. But if the kids are sitting at a separate table (like the kids’ table), you might want to separate the kids from the parents.

(FYI: escort cards tell a person which table they’re at (hence they “escort” you to your table). Place cards tell a person which seat they’re at when they get to the table. Most brides omit place cards these days)

I would make couples escort cards just incase you have that one person who you can’t get ahold of to find out the name of their +1.

I’ve seen it done both ways, and I think either is fine. I think LetsGoPens’s point is a good reason to do couples cards if you are inviting people with unnamed guests.

I’ve seen it done by couple and it seemed to work fine!
