I think if you are serving everyone the same meal you can do one card per couple.  If you are having different choices than you need a card for each person.

I did one for each guest.  I did only table assignments, so I figured that having an escort card for each guest would allow them to secure the seat they wanted at their table, whereas if I only did one per couple, then it might get confusing.

I’ve always ever received one card for me and whoever I was with. At the most recent wedding I went to, we had selected different menu options, but there were 2 marks on the inside of the card indicating what each of our choices was.

Plus, who wants to write out single cards for everyone? Doing couples on one card will save you a heck of a lot of time and stress, IMO!

Usually it’s a card per couple. 

@mkewed2010: Why would this make a difference? You could still identify the 2 meals on one card.

We will most likely do one escort card per person because they will also double as our favors.  Candy will go inside the box as the favor.  Similar to this….

Aren’t they cute?

We’re doing one card per couple but we’re having tableside ordering (i.e. we aren’t putting anything about food choices on the reply card…everyone will just choose at the table). So for us, it probably doesnt make any difference.
