Long tables with assigned seating - do we need numbers and escort cards?
We are having a wedding of about 90 people. We have 4 longtables with 20 people plus the head table. I have been to weddings with longer tables where they just have a place card, but no table numbers or assigned seats so people just walked around and found their card (it was not an issue at all). I would like to do this at my wedding, but everyone keeps telling me to have table numbers and escort cards (or a seating chart sign) for the caterers/ to avoid confusion. I just honestly have never seen this be an issue so I am wondering what everyone else thinks! My opinion is that it would look silly to break up the tables into smaller sections with table numbers and having one table number for the long table doesn't really help (since people would have to walk around and find their spot anyways - I definitely want place cards with assigned seats since I don't want people to get split up since they are rectangular tables).
