So getting the seating cards together….
We have two people with the same NAME!!
How will they know who’s is whos?
For ex: John Mayer the friend and John Mayer the cousin….

That’s funny and usually I have the answer for everything and this time I am stumpled unless you want to put (cousin) after his name LOL

Are they coming with spouses? If so, you could list them(if you’re doing a seating chart) or put their escort card beside their wives?
John & Lucy Mayer
John & Susan Mayer

We had the same thing happen! It confused me majorly when doing invitations.
However, we are not having a seating chart so I am not of much help 🙁 Sorry!

Haha. How interesting!
Do either have a nickname? Even if it’s Johnny? Or middle initial? Or just call them and say “hey, we have 2 john mayers. You will be J mayer. Don’t pick up the John mayer tag.” And then call the other and explain it the opposite way?

Nope, none are married, and both coming on the solo…eeek!

Darn!! Okay you might have to go the route of (cousin) and (friend).

Maybe you could use their middle initials?
Edit: Oops, didn’t see that someone else suggested this!

I actually had this multiple times. We either put a nickame, or middle initial. Also, their wives or guests probably don’t have the same name so you could include also do Mr. and Mrs. Jane and John Smith
This is an exactly what I put on my seating board for one of these (names have been changed):
Mr. & Mrs. Vincent Smith
Mr. & Mrs. Vincent “Cuz” Smith

@notintoplanning: Can you find out their middle initial? That way Its John V. Smith or John R. Smith and they will easily be able to tell the difference? Or you could maybe attach a little picture of the person to the name card?

i think the middle initial is the way to go. haha, wouldn’t it be funny if that were the same too…

I agree with @MissBoPeep – I would use middle initials if they have them.

Just put them both at the same table. Then it won’t matter who picks up which card.
