Maybe, since you only have 10 tables, you can just make a table map that you display along with the seating assignments. The tables in the map can be numbered, and people can just find their table based on where the map shows it to be. For example, if I know that my table is the one on the far right in the second row, or whatever, I don’t need a table number on the actual table in order to find it.

Whatever you do, don’t make yourself crazy sewing 75 napkins!! It’s a cute idea, but totally not worth the stress.

What if you got/made a little post to stick up out of the middle of the flowers that would hold a circle that matches the patterns shown in your first pic for each table?  Like this but just with the pattern circle and not a name/number:

Hmmm, if you have pedestal vases for each table, what about a different colored ribbon that coordinates with each vintage hankie? Say, for that table choose a turquoise ribbon and tie it around the base of your pedestal vase?  For the next table, perhaps a pink ribbon tied around the pedestal vase.  green, yellow, orange, white, peach?  Then just get a bunch of tiny bows or those tiny roses on the stem.  I think you could easily get those at a craft store, also I think efavormart has them.-You could maybe attach them with glue dots to the cards.  Will this work for you?

Can you add a sash or sign to the back of a few of the chairs at each table?

Wouldn’t have to as obvious as this picture, but here’s something I saw from another Bee in another post.

@mg1363: that’s what I was wondering.  doing #’s will be the easiest for you, AND least confusing for guests.  I don’t know that all my guests would figure out to match their fabric from the card to the napkins on the table… and I certainly wouldn’t want to be sewing napkins this far out.  Mrs. Cardigan cursed her napkins, and she made them months before!  If it were me, I’d do #s and tell Fiance he’ll just have to get over it to save my sanity and for ease of our guests.

@Nola: His mom told me that I allow him to have too much say in the wedding.

lol Future Mother-In-Law for the win!!

I agree with PPs. Tell him to get over it and just do numbered tables. Is he purposefully trying to drive you insane!?

@Nola: I think this is the perfect task to assign to your Fiance.  If he’s so anti table number he obviously has a better idea.  I don’t think it’s fair when someone puts the kibosh on all ideas and isn’t willing to contribute some of their own.

That said, I think with 10 tables a seating map could work out well.

that’s what i was thinking!  and to the OP, if he doesn’t want them – ask him to come up with a plan and do the work necessary to make it work! then see if he still doesnt want table numbers!
