Have you considered escort cards?  That way people know what table they are sitting at but they can choose their own seats.

IMO the easist is to do assigned tables (escort cards) but not assigned seats (place cards.) The poster you descirbed is like one big escort card, she put the names all on poster vs. having an individual card per person. The escort cards simply tell guests which table they will sit at, once they get to the table they can choose where to sit. This is the easist because its less planning on your part and you don’t have to think about who sits next to who.

We did escort cards and place cards because there was a very specific way I wanted each table laid out.  However, as long as you at least direct people to a table you should be fine.  There are a lot of ways to do it…you can have individual escort cards or you can do a seating chart.  I think the wiki probably has some neat ideas…

All of the weddings I have been to had escort cards and none of them had place cards. We’re always been told what table, but not what seat at the table.

@ MsJoe, like Cfitz said, I have been to several weddings where there were escort cards and no place cards, you can def get away with escort cards only 🙂

I think it’s totally okay to do escort cards with no place cards.  That’s what we are doing.  I’m grouping people by category of acquaintence, but they will be able to sit wherever at the tables.
