    I am doing the samething with the fabric board.  Just to save space I am putting all married couples on one card.

    My escort cards are going to double as favors, but I like the idea of doing them individually anyways. I suppose if you’re having a large wedding I could see doing them as couples, otherwise I’d vote individual cards.

    I’m putting every person on a separate card.

    @BlushingMonk:  No children.  I think if you’re going to combine married couples onto one card, you should combine all couples who were invited together onto one card.  So you should have as many cards as invitations.  As a not-yet-married couple, I’d be annoyed to have my Fiance and myself on separate cards just because we’re not married yet.

    I put each individual name on separate cards.  The only combined cards I did were for people with very young babies, in which case I put the mother’s name and infant’s name.  It worked out well for us because we had so many couples with different last names (both married and unmarried couples), and it would have been confusing to do the cards as couples, I think.  The children, too, were really excited to have their own.

    @BlushingMonk:  non married couples I was going to give them separte cards. 

    I was planning on writing Joe and Jane Smith for married couples. And write out the names for other couples. 

    I haven’t decided on how I would display it on the board yet.
