    @Shkragoldfish:  Could you assign someone or perhaps two people to serve as hosts or hostesses to assist guests whose names are not represented on the escort cards?  These helpers could then direct any unexpected/uninvited guests to a particular table or tables that would be reserved just for these potential, uninvited, extra guests.

    As for those whom you are inviting but who may end up being last-minute no-shows, I don’t think you can immediately assign unexpected guests to those tables, since you will not know for sure that the invited guests aren’t just arriving late until most of your reception has already concluded.
