With my wedding only 15 days away I’m frantic to finish my seating chart and print the escort cards for my 250 guest wedding.
I’ve been to a lot of weddings and always seem to walk into the reception hall to be slightly stunned at the table numbers – they never seem to be in order!
So… I’m trying to make my reception easier for my guests to find their tables.
I’ve searched online and am unable to find a suggestion for doing table numbers – if I’m not being clear I’m looking for help in NUMBERING my tables… like do I put them like this (with the dance floor splitting the ODDS AND EVENS):
5 3 1 2 4 6
11 9 7 8 10 12
Any help? I don’t want this to be confusing!

I can definitely follow the order of your tables so that’s cool
And I think the dance floor would definitely work splitting the tables… Where is your head table set up going?
And maybe with the dimensions of the room and such it’s be easier to get an idea =)

I would do 1-6 on one side and 7-12 on the other. I agree, it can be confusing. But if I see a 4, I want to know that 5 or 6 are near by, not on the other side of the room.
So I would do:
3 2 1 (DANCE FLOOR) 7 8 9
6 5 4 (DANCE FLOOR) 10 11 12
Hopefully I matched the layout to what you are thinking!

I think it would be a little confusing to split it odd and even. I would do 1-6 on one side and 7-12 on the other.

I just re-read your post – there’s no way you could be having 12 tables for 250 guests??
I would start at one end of the room (top right corner being table number 1) and then just number them in order:
1 4 7
2 5 8
3 6 9, etc….
or you could snake it around too (but I like the other version above, better):
1 6 7
2 5 8
3 4 9….
The point is that when someone see’s a number that’s close to theirs, they know they are close to their table.

We have 20 tables in addition to the Kings Table for the bridal party. The dance floor is in the middle, so we are just numbering 1-10 on the left side of the dance floor and 11-20 on the right side. I think guests can figure it out!
