I am doing DIY table numbers and escort cards. Do I need to have a sign or something that says “Find your seat” or something like that by the escort cards, or will everyonee know what they are and know to get one? We are having 20 guests.I have been to a few weddings in my life, but none have ever had seating cards so I am not sure how to do it.
Should I make a sign? Or should I just have Maid/Matron of Honor and maybe one or two others sort of spread the word if people start to look confused.

I don’t think you need a sign. Just have the cards in the entrace to the room – so it’s one of the first things they see when walking in.
Edit to add: if you are having 20 guests, would you consider assigned seats – so, instead of escort cards, just have place cards at the tables…..

Hmmmm……I didn’t really think about that. We will only have 3 tables so maybe I could do that.

you know what I think would be cute? On a board with an easel – or even in a large frame – have everyone’s name and what table they are at. You could either do it by table – like Table #1 – and then list all those seated at the table. Or, you could do it by alphabet… but, I like doing it by table because I think it could be more elegant and it’s not hard to find your name (I recently went to a wedding were there were 20 tables and it was easy to scan and find your name). If you do it in your wedding font and/or add some sort of embellishment, it would be very pretty!
Then, I’d do individual placecards at each seat, telling each person where their seat was. And, for a personal touch, you could even write everyone a note and have it at their place setting, telling them how much you appreciate them being there and/or something personal about their support. 🙂
