HOW TO CREATE THE PERFECT SEATING PLAN.
The dreaded seating plan. This one little thing that you think will be the simplest of tasks has brought out the ‘zilla’ in even the most relaxed of wedding couples!
I stumbled upon this idea when I was getting married almost 5 years ago. Trust me it saved a lot of heartache (& tantrums) and as I know I have a lot of you at the moment who are embarking on this task I thought I’d share with you all.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
It really is very simple, what you will need is your table plan from your venue, a large white board, white board marker, multicoloured skinny post its & a pen!
- Write out your numbered tables as per your venue table plan.
- Allocate a colour post it to each group of guests i.e. Pink for the brides family, green for grooms friends etc.
- As you start receiving your rsvp’s write the guests name on the allocated colour post it they belong to.
- Stick the post it onto the table of choice, the beauty being you can move these around without having to constantly rewrite the plan. 5. Once everyone has rsvp simply type up the plan & deliver to your venue.
I loved this method as you can see clearly what mix of family & friends you have on each table and they can be moved around without having to rewrite a hundred times! I hope this will help with your upcoming wedmin duties & keep the ‘zilla’ at bay 😉
