usually it’s just the escort cards around here. i think place cards would be way too much work.

Yeah just do assigned tables.  Assigned seats is way too much work.

I am not planning on doig placecards either.  I may personalize the escort cards a little more (like attach a note, or something), but placecards for me would be too much work and too confusing!

That is really up to you.  Escort cards tell the couple at which table to seat themselves.  Place cards are only necessary if you want to control where people sit at that specific table.  It’s nice if you know who has what in common if you plan on place cards.  Most of the time, I think it’s fine to allow people to choose their own seats.  

My FI wants to do place cards, thus creating more work for us in the future 🙂
