Well Im getting married in Georgia and we are most definitely doing assigned tables (not seats). My Future Sister-In-Law got married in Georgia as well and she had assigned tables too. Honestly people will not be confused because they will see all the escort cards and there were probably be a few people that guide the other guests on what to do.They will figure it out! For your situation though it might be good to just leave the tables as numbers instead of naming them. People might get confused if they are looking for “Knoxville Table” or something like that as opposed to just a number.

I think weddings without assigned tables feel awkward

I live in Florida and all of the weddings I have been to (including my own) had escort cards for guests to their assigned tables.   I have been to 6 weddings in the past 5 years or so.

I’m also in Tennessee, and we’re doing escort cards (assigned tables).  Most weddings I have been to here had escort cards.  I don’t think it would cause confusion.  I think it’s awkward to not have assigned tables, especially if you don’t know many people.  Also, if you have family issues (like divorced parents), it’s easier to already have that mapped out so you don’t have to deal with who will sit with who at the reception.

All of the weddings in Florida I’ve attended have had assigned tables, but the one I went to in Nashville last summer didn’t. It was at a really large venue but our group of friends had to rotate out of the same table due to not being able to find enough seats together. I personally like to know the table I’ll be at vs trying to scout one out and claim my seat, but maybe it’s cause of what I’m used to. You know your group and your wedding set up best, so I’d say go with that you think will work.

I got married in South Carolina, but am from TN and live in North Carolina, and I’ve been to weddings in all 3 states that have had assigned seating (including my own).

An option for you to try instead of escort cards could just be assigned tables.  Have a cute display of who sits at what table, and then just let them choose their seat at the table.  I did this at my wedding and it worked out well for everyone.
