    I’m doing one escort card per person, just because I know I like looking for my name at weddings. Are the kids even sitting with their parents? Most weddings I’ve been to have a kids table or two.

    I’ve seen it both ways. We did one per guest because we only had 75 people total and I had a 4′ escort card table– i wanted to make sure it looked nice and full!

    We did it this way (I’m not an etiquette maven though):

    Married couples – one place card

    Singles, couples (living together and not) – separate place cards

    Children – separate place cards (However, all of the ‘children’ were 10 and up)

    I am doing one card per couple/family. So if you’re married, y’all have one card. If you’re bringing a guest, you can just assume that the “guest” is sitting at your table with you. If you’re single then you get your own card. We only have about 5 kids… but they won’t get a card, they’ll sit at their parent’s table. I want their parents to watch them (because they’re 8 and younger), so no separate table for them.

    I did one per guest.

    I know that when I am a guest at weddings, I enjoy finding my own individual card with my name so I wanted to do the same for our guests.

    I’m doing one per party. So one per couple (married or not) or one per family, etc.

    I wanted to do one per person but Mother-In-Law contacted our venue and had them change it. Whatever, no big deal. So it ended up being one per couple regardless of married or not. If that person was listed as their guest then they were on the same card.

    I am doing seperate escort cards for each guest. This is because they will be attached to on of our favors. We are doing handmaid bud vases, my stepfather is a potter and has made one vase for each guest, with a flower in it with the escort card cliped to the flower with a mini clothes pin.

    I was wondering about this same thing.  I think I’ll just do one card per couple.  I’m not sure if any kids will be there.  I’ll have to decide that later if they are.

    I did one per person, alphabetized by last name. We know married couples where the woman didn’t take the man’s last name, and it would have been confusing, deciding where to put their joint escort card.
