    People might not know what table they’re at and it would save a ton of time looking for their names on tables rather than in some specific order. 🙂

    pinkrose23:  Your guests will find their cards much faster if they are arranged alphabetically. It’s also a good idea to separte the cards into 3-4 groups (A-H, etc) so you don’t end up with only one couple at a time being able to look for their card.

    We didn’t do escort cards, we just had a chart.  The chart was by table, but there were only 60 guests so it wasn’t too bad.

    Depends on how many guests.  We had 47 and had a seating chart by table.  If you have a larger group alphabetically by last name would be the easiest.

    Alphabetically by last name, as everyone knows what their last name is, and one person in a family can collect cards for the entire family (who is probably seated together) easily if all the cards are right next to each other.
