Every once in awhile a couple will ask us if we think open seating or assigned tables is best for their wedding guests. Although both have pros and cons, assigned seating logistically makes the best flow for the event. Open seating can create chaos, and usually entails guests dragging chairs around and overcrowding tables. Our goal is to be sure you and your guests have the best possible experience, and in order to do that, we want your event to be chaos free.
Escort cards are traditionally used for guests to find their assigned table, however this is a great opportunity for you to get creative. We have seen couples use food, like jams honey, plants, handkerchiefs, and the list goes on as “escort cards.” And you can be equally creative with your table numbers to match your personality and theme of the wedding. Don’t feel like you are confined to a printed cardstock number.
