Place Card: A small card with the name of a guest on it, placed on the table, to indicate where he or she is to sit.
Which will you use? Know the difference and use the card that best suits your wedding needs.
Proper labeling: After you have decided, here are ways to address and label them properly. For a single guest and their date, Mr. John Jamison and guest. For a married couple, Dr. and Mrs. William Hartman, for a single guest, Ms. Megan Jones. Note that you do not need an escort card for each guest. You will need a place card for each guest. Dietary restriction may be flagged with a logo, monogram or color; usually near the right hand corner.
We love that Brides use these cards to assign guests to specific seats. The escort card gives the guest a place to sit and usually with others that they know and will love to share the evening with. It is also a great way to designate and alert wait staff of any guest having a special dietary restriction.
Escort cards don’t have to be to be a “card” and they certainly don’t have to be lined up like soldiers in little straight rows. We love adding personalization to the cards and even using unexpected elements in place of a place card. Whether you have a dramatic floral design or a fun decor accent on your table, guests will appreciate a little direction and having a space reserved especially for them. Which do you prefer?
