Seating/escort

How are you dealing with the seating instructions/escort cards? I saw a lot of list-by-table (instead of individual escort cards) and I think that's the way to go, only cause it feels like it involves less work, but where am I going to put the list? I just feel like there's going to be too much stuff hanging or on an easel (the hashtag sign, the welcome sign, a photo of the FH and me)... Please share your ideas!

    I did a large chalkboard sign as a seating chart. Our favours were small boxes of fudge and had everyone's names and meal selections on them and were on the tables waiting for them when they got there.

    Combining welcome sign and seating chart, that's brilliant! Thanks for sharing!

    I purchased a big pack of card stock which I used for my seating chart. I had A LOT of extras, so I ended up printing a smaller version of each table name (that hung on a wine bottle - part of our centrepiece) and I printed out a menu card for each guest and wrote their name on it, and doubled as a name card. My "project" only costed like $20 + ink (I still have 1/2 the pack of cardstock left over.. so I will say I only spent $10 lol.. for seating chart, table list, 190 menu cards). I think the seating chart would of been enough. I just had a lot of extra supplies on hand.

    I put my hashtag sign, welcome sign, and photo of us on the reception table out front. So the only thing that hung was the seating chart. Hope this helps

    I just put them in a collage frame fromJysk. It was super easy and I got a lot of compliments on it. It was way less work and set up time than escort cards would be.

    I'm not doing a seating chart just cause I don't want to spend time putting 200 guests together.

    We did a mirrored seating chart! But I think it's way easier to do escort cards Smiley shame If you mess up on the seating chart, or someone's RSVP status changes last minute - it's harder to make the changes on a big list/chart! Escort cards are easier in this case because you only have remove/add/change one!

    I am hanging the people per table lists and I got it from winners ( it says welcome on top so I am combining it with my welcome sign) then when they get to their seats there will be individaul escort cards on which seat is there's because I have thought about who sits well next to each other. Putting this on an easel, the hastag sign, and a photo of fiance and me are going on the guestbook table which is perpendicular to the welcome + seating chart
