Most people usually do one per guest – cute escort card idea!

I’ve seen it done several different ways.

Married couples share a card (assuming they are sitting at the same table).

Couples that are unmarried, you can give each their own, or put it under the name of the person you invited as , "So and So and Guest".

Families can also share one if they are all sitting at the same table.

Grouping couples and families is a great way to save on materials (and giving them all their own can seem redundant if they are sitting at the same table).

I think that, if the escort card is doubling as a favor, it should be one per person.  If it’s just a card, one per couple or family is probably sufficient.

We are doing one escort card per couple or family.  Since there will be a lot of young children at our wedding, it doesn’t make sense to make a separate escort card for a three-year old.  It will also save on materials.


 The point HL made above about escort cards as favors is a good one.

First these escort cards are so cute, and if you decide to put them in sand (like in your inspiration pictures) I think that is the cutest idea ever!

To answer your question, we are in a similar situation too, we have alot of couples that arn’t married. What we plan to do is have both their names on an escort card and put the males name first so the card would read "John Doe & Jane Smith" table 1. Unless we have a female friend who we are closer to, and if we don’t really know her Boyfriend or Best Friend, we are going to put her name first then his.

For families and married couples, they will all go on one card. I think it would be redundant and unnecessary to have each spouse/family member have their own card.
