Escort Cards vs. Place Cards

I am often asked what is the difference between place cards and escort cards. There is a very simple answer to this question.

Escort cards show the name of the wedding guest and the table where they are sitting.
A place card actually is placed at the seat of the individual wedding guest at the table.

Typically you would not have a place card without an escort card unless you are having a small number of guests. Got it?

Here are a few examples of how to display an Escort Card:

and here are a few examples of a place card:

It makes it easy for your guests when they know exactly where they are sitting. Even though that seating chart is such an enormous task it is necessary to keep your wedding reception organized. Plus you end up with great pictures like the ones above. :)
