So my wife and I decided on having assigned tables for our reception, but not assigned seats since we hate that. Since we got married in Vegas, we went with playing cards as our table assignments for the guests. For example, a table would have a large "ten of hearts" card on it and any guest whose name was put on a ten of hearts would be sitting at that table. We had a welcome table at the venue where all the cards were laid out.
Here are links to blank Photoshop and PNG image files in high resolution that you can use for this if you want to do it yourself. The easiest solution is to use the Photoshop file as it has all the cards in layers you can turn on and off and add text to easily, then print on standard 8x11 paper to get normal sized playing cards. You can also blow them up large and print one per page to make the table cards. We recommend heavy paper. If you do not have Photoshop, you're probably best off using the PNG files with something like Microsoft Paint; just open the image, then click to add text to it. You can "edit colors" to pick a red that matches the cards and whatever font you like. The only problem is for some dumb reason, Paint does not have the option to center text, so you'll have to do a 'poor mans' centering where you just add spaces to the front until it looks close to centered. I'm including an image of how you do this in Paint at the bottom of this article.
