For our wedding, we are having a seated dinner with menu choice.  Therefore, I have to do place cards in order to denote meal choices for each guest.  But I’m opting to doing table assignments only, not specific seats.  I designed my own place cards and board to hold them.  Guests pick their place card and pick any seat at their assigned table.  They place their card in a little holder at each place setting for servers’ views.  I enjoyed making my own place cards and boards and it wasn’t very time consuming or expensive.  Just another place I got to put my own style into the wedding.

I’ve only attended weddings where we had place cards (with assigned seats or just tables).  Are you doing a specific seating chart or just by table?  It might be easier for guests to pick up a place card and carry it looking for their table number then trying to memorize a seating chart. If you are just going by table, then listing table #s with names probably would work just fine.
