(Closed) At how many tables, does finding a table name (vs. a table number) get too hard?

I am doing it and we have 13 tables. I did not expect the guest list to grow… So now I am doing the table names and posting a seating “map” at the table with the escort cards so guests will have an idea of where they are seated.

The seating map is a great idea!  I’m figuring having to hunt around our 8 tables will give guests a little extra time to mingle and spare us a few minutes more for photos!

I think if the table markers are color coded in some way (as well as having names), that makes the finding process infinitely easier.  The table map is also a very good idea; I’ve seen inspiration pictures of that being hung very artfully on an easel.

I’d say much more than 12ish it would be difficult unless there was some sort of “sensical” order, like they’re alphabetical starting at the front.

Make a map. That’s what I would do.  You could ask your bm or gm if they could help people get to their seat.
