- Wedding: August 2018 - Banquet Hall/Conference Center
For a couple, is it typical to write both of their names on the same card, or do you make separate cards for each person? What if they are unmarried or have different last names? We are having a large reception with 325 people, so my mom said usually they are grouped into 2’s (ex: John and Jane Smith – Table 13) to not turn it into a conference registration table haha.
If combined, then do you make 2 of each? Or can we get by with just one? On Minted, they are running $1.40/card, which could get pretty expensive if we get individual cards for all 325 guests…
(I’m referring to the cards that people pick up with their name on it and their table number. I’m planning on doing logs on moss with slits for each namecard).

I’ve never seen escort cards with 2 names on them, but I’ve also never been to a wedding as big as yours.
We didn’t do escort cards, we did a seating chart and then individual names with food preferences at the table. You’d still have to do the individual cards so not sure that would save you money but it would save you space, especially since you’ve got such a big crowd! Just an idea.

We had 300 guests and did one card per couple. If they were unmarried, we wrote it as John Smith & Jane Doe.
It worked well for us since we had a plated dinner and everyone was served the same meal…beef, chicken and seafood..unless they were vegetarian or had dietary restrictions. In those cases, our venue was given a seating chart from us which noted where those people would be seated and their meals were prepared accordingly.

One card per person makes it a lot clearer especially with regard to meal choices etc.

If your wedding is that big I would go with a seating chart instead- that’s what we did and no one had a problem (Except for the name my mom screwed up so it was wrong on the chart lol)
