so I am helping a close friend with her wedding (I am matron of honor) and we are doing her seating arrangment (she had roughly 150 guests coming). Everything is going well everyone gets along great So no difficulty placing people. My question is how did you make it so that people couls easily find their table/seat. I feel a large board with peoples names would impossible. Tickets could be hard and could easily be lost between when they get them and when they are seated. so just hoping you ladies have any good ideas

I’ve been to large weddings with either a seating board or escort tags, and neither were confusing. Give people a little benefit of the doubt- they’ll do fine 🙂

ment.to.be2013: If she does escort cards in alphabetical order, it shoud work fine. Just be sure to split up the alphabet into 3-4 sections so you don’t have all 150 guests lining up in one area.
Alternatively she can do a seating chart-also alphabetically

I think you are overthinking it. We had little seating tickets pinned with clothespins on a DIY board and all of the guests found their names without difficulty (we also had about 150). We put couples on the same ticket to cut down the mber needed. A seating chart would also work fine.

ment.to.be2013: I had one daughter marry in 2103 and the other in 2014. With both, the venues wanted escort cards – by couple or preferably by individual, so that they could be marked for the guest entree. Some people do different colored cards, put a colorful marking of some sort on them (we did stars), etc., so that the servers can move quickly and not have to ask each guest what their entree choice is. If you’re having a buffet, obviously you can go with a big chart.
