| Wedding Wednesday | Place cards or escort cards?

Welcome to Wedding Wednesday!  Today we're answering a question we commonly get...

What's the difference between place cards and escort cards?

Most people actually think they are the same thing but they are in fact different.  While both are used to inform your guests where they will be seated at the reception, place cards are more formal and more specific.  A place card not only tells the guest which table but the EXACT seat as well.

If you're looking for a more informal seating arrangement, use escort cards.  These cards will direct everyone to their table number but they are then free to choose their own seat.  Consider it the more casual choice.

Occasionally couples will have both escort cards and place cards.  Or it's totally fine to skip place cards and opt for escort cards.  It just depends on what kind of wedding you're planning on having.  

No matter what your style is, we're here to help you achieve your dream day!
