@LilySparks:  We did a seating chart, and placecards at the tables.  The seating chart indicated what table (whether by number or name) to go to, and placecards to show where they should sit.  Best of luck! 🙂

@LilySparks:  we’re doing place cards and table numbers on the tables. i thought the seating chart was redundant, so we’re probably going to skip that step.

We’re doing a seating chart that will be placed on an easel as you approach the reception area. At each table we’re doing a table number/name card, and place cards at each individuals seat. I’ve also colour co-ordinated the place cards – one colour for chicken, one colour for fish, one colour for vegetarian.

@LilySparks:  I did what @Mulan05:  did – placed our seating chart just outside the reception area, so people could see what tables to go to.

@LilySparks:  the seating chart can be arranged alphbetically or by table #.  (google for examples).  this is usually on an easel at the entrance. 

instead of a chart, other brides have a table with their favours on it.  the guests’ names and table numbers are attached to the favour.  (works double duty).

Shoot, I don’t remember, it’s been a while!  I want to say, it was roughly the size of one of those 3 fold posterboards (you know, the kind we used for science fair projects in grade school).

@LilySparks:  I haven’t actually put mine together yet… but I’m planning to use one of those poster boards/bristol boards you can buy at the dollar store. The size of those is 22×28 inches. Then I’m going to print on white cardstock the table and name info, and stick that. We have 10 tables total, so I hope it fits.

I’ll be putting that together in the next 2 weeks, so when I’m done, I’ll come back and post a picture for you (if you’d like).

@LilySparks:  we are working on ours as the RSVP coming. Place Cards with table numbers. We are selecting tables based on who knows eachother/would get along. Its like 6 degrees of seperate to place people. We are having tables of 4 people so I feel more pressure than if we had tables of 8 were you could have more people to talk too
