The easier you can make them to read, the quicker guests can find them/get to their seats. (“M&R” was our “logo”-our initials)

In my opinion, you don’t necessarily have to use Mr. or Mrs., but if someone is an MD (not a phD~for some reason that title of “Dr.” is not used in social situations) you need to use the title of Dr.  It’s my understanding that that is what is socially proper.  

Same thing with military rankings for officers.  We had several retired military at our wedding and we made it a point to write the titles out on the escort cards.

I wouldn’t use the Lord, Lady, etc titles you mentioned.  Unless your theme is some sort of very obvious renaissance type of affair.  

Organize your escort cards on the table by last name and you’re guests will know how to find their last names.  Better to err on the side of more respectful than not.

I will just put Bob Smith or whatever the name is. Then go alphabetical (last name probably) and they will have no issue finding their names.
