As a guest, I really prefer the alphabetical seating chart as opposed to grouping by tables. I know what my last name is, but I don’t know what table I’m at, so it forces me to read through all of the tables until I find mine.

@cheebs:  Agreed!  Instead of table numbers being the headers and breaking it up, you could do last name initials.  Kind of like this?

@Mint2Bee:  If you had some time to spare (and good hand writing) you could make up the seating chart when you get there on a chalk board. If you google chalkboard seating chart, there are hundreds of examples. The best thing to use would be a chalk marker (from craft store like Hobby Lobby). It won’t smear that way.

If you’re looking for more rustic/DIY, here is kind of a cool one kind of like with bunting. OMG, you could use bunting and print the table numbers and names on iron on transfer paper then string them up when you get there. that’d be way cute. Or combine bunting and chalkboard in this style.

Here‘s a cool font/format for table Letter and names. Kind of carnival style?

This is pretty cool. Have a tie be each table. Then use a “tie clip” to hold the names on, but put all the names on 1 sheet so people do not think they’re escort cards.

Cool idea. Guest have to match their name to the table #. It make be a bit confusing for older guests, though.

OMG, this would be hysterical if you had a pic of all your guests! Which is easy to do now with social networking!
