HOW TO CREATE A SEATING CHART YOUR GUESTS WILL LOVE

Updated: Feb 13


As the bride and groom, you most definitely have a lot of things to handle right now. Indeed, there are a thousand details that make up the perfect wedding – and you surely want to make sure each and every one of them is properly handled.


Your seating chart is extremely important because it will help your guests not only find their seats, but actually enjoy the evening as well.

How to create a seating chart your guests will love? Here are some tips for you:

· Group people who either know and like each other or who are likely to be compatible. This will help you ensure everyone has a good time. DO keep in mind that you shouldn’t create “singles” only tables – it might make them feel awkward, and it might not create the best vibes for your wedding reception.

· Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Your Maid of Honor, your mom, your dad, your bridesmaids – they are all there to help you in planning this special event. And yes, they can definitely help you create a seating chart as well. The reason you should have another pair of eyes look at your seating chart is because it will help you avoid mishaps.

· Aim for a clutter free chart and a clutter free table. This is important for more than one reasons. Not only will everything look better if it’s de-cluttered, but you will also be able to help your guests find their names on the list faster and find their actual seats faster too. No matter how interesting or intriguing an extravagant décor may look, be sure you don’t clutter it!

· Take it the simplest and the most logical route: the alphabetically-ordered names. Yes, it might sound boring and maybe even too traditional for some. But it’s one of those things that really lasted throughout times not because they are “supposed to”, but because they make actual sense. People will find their names much easier on the seating chart if they are arranged alphabetically.
