How to Address Wedding Place Cards

While etiquette varies across cultures and eras, you want to ensure your guests feel welcome. With that in mind, we recommend omitting words like “plus one” or “guest” on your wedding place cards. Whenever possible, try to include each guest’s name.

From there, options vary. More traditional approaches include using titles such as Ms., Dr., Mr., etc. For a modern approach, you can omit the titles and just use first and last names. 

Additionally, you can list couples on one card or give each guest an individual escort card. The most important thing is to make your guests feel valued and part of the celebration.

Remember, your wedding planner is there to help you navigate these decisions. Make sure to speak to your planner on which style best suits your needs. For help finding a top wedding planner, head to PartySlate’s curated directory.
