What is the difference between an escort card, place card, and table card?
Traditionally, an escort card assigns the table where a couple will be seated, and is placed inside a small envelope with the couples’ names on the outside. A more contemporary approach to escort cards skips the envelope, and the names and table numbers are on the card together. A table card is the same as the modern take on the escort card: it tells guests what table to sit at. Escort and table cards are generally set up outside of or at the entrance to the reception. A place card is placed at the individual seats at a table and lets your guests know which seat to take at the table.
