@muzikfreek13: This is what I am planning on:

Table Names – what do you think?

I have also seen other brides do their favorite TV shows, martinis, street names, places around college campus where they met, different dates they went on. etc.

I went to a wedding where the escort cards were pictures of the bride and groom holding the number.  I thought that was cute.

For the seating, I am a fan of the escort cards as opposed to a seating chart…but its personal preference.

If you use a seating chart, I would recommend you try to lay it out the same way as the tables, especially if the tables are not numbered (named instead). 

If you have lots of people, escort cards, or an alphabetic list, plus table diagrams (again, if they’re named, not numbered) is good.

Depending on what access to the venue is like, figuring out where your escort cards/seating chart should be located in order to avoid bottlenecks is also a good idea.

We used the names of scientists/writers/economists/writers that we liked, but put #s in the background, plus made the seating chart laid out the same way (very close anyway) as the tables.  We also had two copies, because we just printed it off the plotter at my spouse’s work.  We had about 78 people at that one.  Seating was fairly quick, once one family member identified where their whole family went.


Reception two I used the favours (boxes w chocolates) as escort cards, for about 50 people.  The only sort of concern there was they were laid out on cake stand things and the boxes were a bit tall, so the ones on the lower tiers were apparently a bit hard to read.
