Any chance you and your SO met at college? I’d love to use the names of academic buildings and dorms that have significance for us as table names. Or maybe important places to you as a couple? Name of a restaurant, a park, a city, etc?

If you want to do a seating chart, I would make more than one copy for a large wedding

drawn diagram- guests find their name on the alphabetical list on the right, then find their table on the diagram

for a formal wedding-  if you needed to make changes to one or two tables you could just redo those cards

The advantage to using escort cards rather than a seating chart is that you can revise seating right up until the last minute if need be.

With that many guests you need to spread the escort cards between several “stations” or tables so your guests aren’t all in one huge crush trying to find their card. Group by last name- ABC, DEF etc

The “cards” don’t need to be standard cards. Brides have used all sorts of things-

leaves on a tree

 

skeleton keys

favors that do double duty like these flowers

for a nautical wedding

What is your theme or the feel you want from your decor?

@mymychele:  Maybe they had long rectangular banquet tables?

@mymychele:  I am having an old hollywood glamour wedding and our idea for the tables is we are going to use pictures of old hollywood actors and singers ie:judy garland,elvis,gene kelly ppl like that. we will have the picture on the table and a board with the pictures on it and ppls name underneath. i hope that that helps you out 🙂

 

keep us posted on what you decide to do 🙂
