Wedding Direction Cards
For printing out Wedding Direction Cards, you need to take a couple of decisions. First check is whether the ceremony and the reception are held at the same address. If not, do you need to provide directions to one of the locations or both? Next, is it possible to give easily understandable directions or do you need to provide a map? If you have to provide directions or route maps for both the ceremony and reception at different locations, you can use two-sided cards that are printable on both sides.

Wedding Escort Cards
Most people consider Escort Cards and Place Cards to be the same. And they are right as far as the usage is concerned – to help the guests to find their seating positions. The difference is in where they are placed. Place Cards are put on the tables and the guests have to go from table to table to spot their names. Escort Cards are usually kept at the Entrance, so that the guests donot have to wander around. Depending on how you display the cards, most place cards can be used as escort cards too. You can even use gift tags as escort cards!
