    Does anyone have some suggestions on how to get your guests seated at the reception? I have received all of the RSVP cards so I know what everyone will eat for the evening but I am a bit lost on how to seat them. We have over 50 people attending our event (yikes!). Any thoughts?

      I think a lot of girls with a larger group are sitting at several round tables. I've seen really creative ideas with the seating. If the groom is a Firefighter, and the Bride is a dentist or something, they would name each table something to do with those two professions (Molar table, Firetruck table, ect.) Or you could keep it completely simple and not have assigned seating and keep them round tables, just without the "assigned seating" We are only having 22 people, so we're sitting at one long table, so everyone can chit-chat. Also, is your reception in a hotel grill or something similar, or on the beach? The choice is yours really :)

          We had 56 people. We did round tables of 8 -10. I suggest assigned seating with a group that big.

            we were 30. i had 2 round tables of 10, one of 8, and then us. i did assigned seating w/ starfish placecards, and used different color ribbons on the starfish to say who had what meal.

              At my daughters wedding I had 120 people and what I did was to have 12 round tables for 10 people each. At the entrance of the reception area I had a table with a nice picture of my daughter and her husband, and little umbrellas (those you get in your drinks) with peoples names and a number on it. Each table had a number too. Nothing crazy, simple but effective.

              Good luck!

                  Thank you everyone for these great ideas! I think I may combine many of these ideas into one. I am thinking a few tables of 12 and doing some sort of simple idea to get people to their tables. I love the umbrellas too! Thank you everyone for helping me with this. I love this site.
