I’d assume this is the table information, placed at the entrance to the reception, so guests know what table they are on, and just have to look for their table number. They may then have an allocated seat with another name place on their table.

@MsquareM:  These would actually be escort cards, that may help with your confusion. These would be at the entrance of your reception to direct guests to their table number in general. Then, it’s up to you. You can just have escort cards and they get to pick a seat at the table or you could have another set of cards, these would be your place cards. They would sit at the persons seat and tell them which place setting (and chair) at the table is theirs. Does that make sense?

Your guests would remove these cards to know where they sit-table number. Yiu dint have to sign seats at the table.  

So you thought people wandered around inspecting each table to find their name?

Escort cards are used instead of a seating plan at the entrance of the room to assist guests in finding their table.. There may, or may not, be place cards on the table.
