You create something called an “escort card”

These cards tell the person what table they sit at.

Example:  Jane Smith : Table 2

You make the cards and display them in a place where everyone can see.

You put everyone’s name in order so they can find themselves alphabetically.

Then people go to the table and see their “place card” and know there to sit.

Hope this helps!

 

PS

If you are not doing assigned seats…only assigned tables…then you only “escort cards”.  At my wedding I assigned the table but not the seat. People got their escort card and then seated themselves at the assigned table.

You are assigning the actual seats?  Typically people do have both types of cards and it tends to not feel redundant. Escort cards are on a front table and then the seating cards are on the tables where people sit.

You could certainly make a chart, just make sure that all the names are in alphabetical order so people can find themselves 🙂
