Seating Arrangements Tips and Ideas

Putting together the seating chart for a wedding can be one of the most frustrating and time consuming parts of wedding planning. Below are some tips and ideas to make it a little bit easier!

1. Put the names in alphabetical order. You want to make it as easy as possible for the guests to find their names. This will ensure there isn't a long line of people waiting to find their seats and holding up the rest of the reception.  

2. If you do choose to have them displayed by table number, make sure the board (or whatever you choose to write it on) is easy and big enough to read. Once again, keep it as uncomplicated as possible.



3. Avoid writing the chart on any reflective or see-through surface such as mirrors or windows, especially at an outdoor wedding. This will make it difficult for the guests to read and cause confusion.

4. There are lots of fun options for seating assignments or table names. Tie it into the wedding theme or make it about you as a couple. Your favorite cities, your favorite sport teams, Disney couples etc. You can put photos of you both at the age of the table number or your favorite songs. The ideas are endless!
