Each guest has their own place card.

We’re doing couples as applicable for table assignments. Mostly because I don’t want to find a place for 100+ cards, and we’re not connecting them to a place card holder favor or anything like that..

I think etiquette wise, it should be one per person.  I did one card per couple.

I did one per couple, because I was indicating meal selections on the placecards and most of the RSVP’s didn’t indicate which person wanted which entree.  Plus, yeah, the fewer the better…

We did couples have a placecard. Singles were by themselves. It just made it easier for people to find themselves if there weren’t SO many placecards. And for my DOC to set up.

You’re getting different answers because of your wording. 

PLACE cards are on the table already and show guests where their actual chair and plate are. If you’re doing this each guest should get their own card.

If you’re doing an ESCORT card, which is found prior to entering the reception portion of your wedding, and directs guests to a particular table number, but they can choose their own chair when they get there, then putting a couple on this card is normal and expected. No need for everyone to get their own.

@atalante:  I did the clarification because you’re probably not the only one. I bet you the OP is actually talking about escort cards and not place cards. Most people don’t realize there is a difference.  I’m a wedding planner so I have to know this silly stuff ๐Ÿ™‚
