Splendid Advice


Your wedding is a truly great event in your life – and as the host of it, you want all the people invited to have a good time. Yes, the food, the drinks and the music are all crucial in creating a fun, unforgettable ambiance at your wedding. Beyond that though, it all starts with a good seating chart.


How to be creative and efficient when doing that? We have some tips for you – so read on to find out more about creating the perfect seating chart for your wedding.

First of all, start as early as possible. You may underestimate this and believe it’s not going to take long – but the truth is that it will take some thinking, rethinking and then thinking some more.


Start by putting down your guests’ names in a spreadsheet. Add a column to the spreadsheet and write the “group” your guests pertain to (your friends, your fiancé’s friends, your relatives, and so on). Then, sort out the table according to these criteria – it will make things much easier from thereon.
Once this is done, take a piece of paper and a pen and draw circles as “tables” to “seat” guests at. Double-think before assigning anyone to their tables – you want to make sure they would get along with everyone else at that table, so avoid putting together exes or people who are not great friends with each other.
Last, but not least, remember to assign yourselves at your table too. A traditional long head table will have you in the middle, surrounded by the Maid of Honor and Best Man (who are followed by the bridesmaids and groomsmen in a boy/girl succession). However, you can have your own sweethearts table, or, why not, you could assign yourselves multiple seats at different tables (so that you mingle with the guests).
