Episode #54 – Tips on How to Plan Seating Charts

Seating charts are a pain unless you thrive on organizing.  Most people have difficulty planning them out.  Today we have some tips to help you get through this task with ease.

*Wedding Wire has a great seating chart software program and there are many others*

Three options

  • Open Seating –  Buffets
  • Assigned tables place cards on tables – sit down dinner
  • Assigned seats and tables – sit down dinner with all plates set beforehand and/or multi-course

How to plan:

  • Group guests
  • Family
  • Friends
  • Try to mix tables with people that know each other and people who don't
  • Kid's table
  • Try not to seat people with (bad) histories at the same table
  • Don't over think it – it's really only for the dinner part and then your guest dance the night away
  • 8 is the ideal number at each 60″ table no less than 6 but absolutely no more than 10
  • Ask your parents for guidance as they may know something you don't.

Seating chart ideas:

  • Window
  • Chalkboards
  • Corks
  • Picture frames
  • Tons more on Pinterest

If placing your guest in specific places is just too much, consider the assigned table option.  It may just save you a headache.
