When doing escort cards, do you usually do for example: Megan Smith & Guest on one card or do you do Megan Smith on one card and Guest on other? I know some of our responses are just Megan Smith & Guest when they reply. It wouldn’t be hard to find out, but it would be easier to just do Megan Smith & Guest (Table 1). What is the norm? Thank you!

you can do it either way. I’m putting couples on one card.

If they were not married we gave them separate cards. I wrote on them and I have huge, fat cursive handwriting so it just worked better that way..if they were married I just put “mr. and mrs john jones”
ETA: We found out the guests name for all of the significant others

I did Megan Smith and Guest (Table 1). When possible, I tried to find out the guest’s name to make them feel a little more special. 😉 I didn’t separate any parties on the escort cards.

I’ve seen it done both ways – at our wedding each person had their own escort card but at my cousins wedding a few months ago they included my husband and myself on one escort card. I think its more of a personal preference.

@MlleBrielle: I think that is a great way of going about it.

Ok great! I’m thinking of just putting couples on the same card but wasn’t sure if it would look bad if I did that! Thank you for your input!

We will be putting each person on their own card. As a guests, this is easier for me because sometimes you don’t enter the reception with your partner. At a wedding where you know a lot of other guests, or where the cocktail hour or ceremony is in the same place, you might be in conversation with someone else and walk in at different times, and this way each person can grab their own card and avoid confusion. I don’t think it’s a big deal either way though- guests will figure it out.

Does your venue need menu choice? I had to one card per person because we had to have a way to indicate who had the beef, salmon or veggie. The flower on the escort card indicated the meal.
Double check with your venue first before making your decision.
