Escort Cards Vs. Place Cards
For an intimate wedding, use place cards with each guest's name. Escort cards let guests (mostly couples) know which table they are sitting.
After the ceremony ends, the guests head towards the reception venue. Before you and your husband arrive, it is better that everyone finds their tables. Even though place cards can help get the job done, escort cards are much easier to reduce any sort of confusion. With the guest names and table numbers displayed on the cards, you can be sure to enter your own reception with nothing but celebration on your mind.
