If you’re planning a special event or wedding, you’ll need to make a lot of decisions about guest seating. Something that might come up during your planning is whether to use escort cards or place cards. While both will direct your guests to their appropriate seats, they also have important differences.

Escort cards are decorative cards that are placed near the entrance to your party space or wedding reception venue. Your guest finds the escort card with his name on it, which identifies his table number. He then locates his table and chooses his seat. Place cards state the name of each guest, and are placed on the specific table and in front of the specific seat in which you want your guest to sit. These offer less flexibility and make it more difficult for guests to find their seats.
