Believe it or not, escort cards are really important at any event. It defines etiquette, coordination and above all order. When brides ask me if they should create escort cards or just let her guests sit where they want I say absolutely not!, because giving the guests the opportunity to sit anywhere they want can really create chaos,. You will find yourself looking at empty tables, mis counted chairs and spaces and I am sure you as a bride do not want this.
Make sure you write clearly or use your computer to print out full names and last names, make sure your escort cards matches your list, the last thing you really want is someone sitting in a wrong chair with strangers. Be creative when making your escort cards, if you do not want to make them or don’t have time ask your wedding planner she must be able to make them, I know I love making them and always end up helping my brides.
