So at this point my programs are probably going to be nothing more than half of a sheet of 8 1/2″ by 11″ paper, or possibly a full sheet folded in half like a simple booklet. My question is: does it seem like a good idea to put info like a small assigned table seating list on the back of the program? We are flipping the room between ceremony and rehearsal and I am worried that not everyone will see the seating chart during the cocktail hour. I am not planning on doing placecards for the same reason and because we are only doing assigned tables, not assigned seating. If table assigments were printed on the back of the program, then at least everyone would have a copy of it in their hands and would know ahead of time. But does this idea seem weird? Has anyone else seen it done this way?

Is there any reason you wouldn’t do escort cards? I’ve never heard of using the back of programs, but can’t think of any reason it wouldn’t work.

Given your scenario, that actually sounds like a really good idea, as long as there is enough room to do it without making it so small or cramped that it is not readable.

i have never seen this either, but i also see no reason why it wouldn’t work.
I think as long as its understood that guests need to keep it after the ceremony.. or remember their table # ( i could see people accidently leaving them on ceremony chairs, throwing them away ) . i think if you layout the table seating clearly and its not crammed at all then it would work perfectly!

I don’t see any reason this couldn’t work, but I would maybe put a larger version up on the wall somewhere in case they forget, or throw away their program.

Yeah, I bet enough people will see it that even if people leave it, they can ask to see someone else’s. Good luck!
