Planning the seating arrangement for your wedding guests is one of the final activities you need for your wedding reception. Seating arrangement is necessary when you’re expecting large number of guests.
Planning the seating for your wedding guests makes your reception the most organized. Also, it makes serving and movement very easy.
Ways to plan your seating arrangement are enlisted as follows:
1. Start Planning The Seating Arrangement for Your Wedding Guests Early
Procrastinating the planning of your seating chart till the last minute makes it cumbersome. Plan your seating chart a week to your wedding.
2. Categorize It
Categorize all you’ve invited for the wedding by relationship, such as family, friends, partner’s family etc. This makes it easy to sort the lists and separate it into distinct tables.
3. Determine How Many People Can Fit A Table
Eight is the best for the maximum number of guests to fit a table.
4. Lay Out The Venue
Determine how many tables can fit into the venue. Leave space for people to walk between tables.
5. Determine Where The Couples Sit.
6. Assign Tables
Developing a reasonable seating plan will make the wedding guests feel very comfortable. However, if you’re having a simpler wedding of fewer guests, then you may nor need to assign specific seats.
7. Arrange For Your Parents Seating
Traditionally, you and your partner’s parents are meant to sit on the same table. There are exemptions however. Setting up the parent-seating arrangement is very flexible. Go for what suits you.
8. Reunion Time
Set up your seating arrangement in a way that old friends and former school mates can catch up with each other after not seeing themselves for a while.
