What about your seating style for your guests? Will they grab an escort card with their table assignment, or are you displaying everything on a big seating chart?

    Escort cards. They can be changed and switched around easily for any last minute additions or subtractions and I think it's easier than having everyone stand in front of one sign looking for their name.

    We did a seating chart but I would have preferred escort cards. I just didn't want to hand write 118 cards because my handwriting is terrible and paying for someone to write them felt silly (and we didn't have a printer at the time).

    I went with a seating chart because escort cards are too much work ahah. However I did initially want escort cards because I thought of using it as a party favor
