In case of a bigger event, place cards alone would not be able to manage the chaos. You need to couple them with a seating chart or escort cards.

Escort cards as mentioned above are used to help the guests reach their tables. An escort card has the name of the arriving guest with the table number they are seated at. Usually, escort cards are placed at the entrance of the venue / reception. Each guest picks their escort card and move towards their respective table accordingly.

An alternative approach to this is using a seating chart which can also be placed at the entrance to inform the guests about their seating place.
