I wouldn’t put it in the program. Make a big board with everyone’s name to put at the entrance on the reception and list their table number next to it, or you could put their name and table number on our favor. We’re debating between the two.

usually you have a seating chart with all the table numbers and then the people designated to that table. People find their number and take a seat

Escort cards will tell your guests where they are sitting.

You can do this a few ways.  Some people do a chart like this at the entrance:

I went with escort cards.  Inside the envelopes with people names on them was a card that told them what table to go to (and doubled as a drink ticket).

Are you doing favors?  You could have favors that serve a dual purpose (as an escort card) where you attach a tag that will say what table they should go to…

@August2013Bride:  

Yeah to make it really simple you could just print out an 8×11 piece of paper with all the table numbers with the names of the folks sitting at the table number listed beneath it.  Frame it and set it up at the entrance.

If you want to make a bigger statement with it you can just do the same but on thick poster board so it’s big…but same idea.  We’ll be doing it this way and our venue has an easel that we will set it on when people walk in.

We did escort cards. You can buy these blank and run them through the printer. I made mine a little fancy with the color of the flower indicating meal choice. I also wanted to be able to change table # at the last minute, so instead of printing them on the card, I attached it separately. We had them on a table out side the room.

Here are mine. The numbers are Japanese numbers. Pink=steak, orange=salmon, green= veggie

@geekspice:  Thanks. One of the easier DIY projects. I used paper flowers from Prima, used brads for the center. I sat in front of the TV and made the flowers a few months before the wedding. I printed the table number onto green scrapbook paper and punched them out. The after the RSVPs came in and I knew what people wanted, I printed names, made a little hole in the corner and put the brads through. Then once I knew who was sitting where, I attached the table #. If I were to do it again, I would make the table # punch smaller.
