We are having 2 DOC, one of which my mom thinks should stand @ the front door & tell everyone where they’re sitting & point them in the right direction.
I was under the assumption that we just make seating cards that say which table each guest is at.
One of my concerns w/ verbal seating is that some families are split up (the parents are at table 8, two kids are a table 13, one teen is at table 11). I think this may be super confusing for the DOC.
So as a guest, which would be most helpful for you? Any suggestions?

As a guest, I really like looking for my name amongst all the others. Then, I really like seeing what number I got, kinda like winning a prize, haha. Though it does take awhile to get to the front of the table to find your name, I’d feel like having one DOC tell EVERY guest where they sit would take even longer.

That sounds ridiculously confusing, for both your DOC who isn’t going to know who everyone is, as well as your guests who might have to wait in line. Unless it’s customary in your area to do it verbally like this, I would go with seating cards or board. Then, maybe your DOC can be just “around” that area at your reception if people not exactly sure where to go (“Table 7? That’s just over there” 🙂

I like a combination of these ideas… Having the DOCs available to help guests is a great idea, but I think that having the table cards there to pick up is important too because it will enable guests to be seated quickly!
