How to Seat Your Guests
Although there are many different moving parts that go into planning a wedding from the venue, the dress, the catering, the decorations, the aesthetic theme and many other things. One of the things that is often overlooked is the seating arrangement for the guests that the reception. This might seem like an easy task but it can actually be pretty hard to put all the puzzle pieces together sometimes. Here are seven guiding points to making sure that your seating arrangement will be amazing.
1. Start Early
Don't wait until the last minute to start planning for this because before you know it, it will be the night
before the wedding and you're still trying to figure out where everyone is sitting. This will make the day even more stressful.
2. Break it Down
Understanding all the different people that are coming from both sides of the parties and which friends will mesh well together and those that will not.
3. Create a Chart to Organize
Organize your thoughts by creating some sort of chart that can be easily rearranged and
moved through the thought process. Here is a great site to use to help you out!
4. Choose Where You Want to Sit
This is your wedding so make sure to choose where you want to sit whether that is at a table with just you and your significant other or if that is with the rest of the bridal party.
5. Place Your Parents
Make sure that your parents are close by and able to take in everything that is happening
because this is much a big day for them as it is for you and they want to be able to take in
every moment they can.
6. Create a Visual Chart
Place lists of the tables at the front of the reception so that everyone can easily find their seat without the stress of going around the whole venue trying to find their seat.
7. Provide Reunion Time
Make sure to give the table time to meet with each other and introduce themselves so that
everyone feels comfortable and ready to celebrate the day together.
