Escort Cards vs. Place Cards

So many cards...what do they all mean?

An escort card lists the guest and their spouse or date and contains their table assignment. Sometimes cards with table numbers are place inside petite envelopes with the guests' names on them for easy switching in case Aunt Winnie sits at table five instead of table nine.

A place card sits at each place setting on the reception tables letting guests know where they should sit at the table.

Don’t care where guests sit after they get to the table? It’s perfectly acceptable to skip the place cards and let them choose their seat at the table. Just make sure the wait staff knows how many place settings each table needs.
