Figuring Out Wedding Seating Chart Ideas
Picking out a Wedding Seating Chart can be a daunting task. Why? Because there are SO MANY Wedding Seating Chart Ideas!! From traditional to quirky, the choice is up to you. Here are our Top Four choices for Wedding Seating Chart Ideas:
Traditional Seating Chart
At the top of our List of Wedding Seating Chart Ideas is the Traditional we’re all used to seeing. Picture it: You walk into a reception hall and there displayed on a nicely decorated 8 foot table is an array of place cards. These cards have the guests name on the front alongside their table number. They’re usually put out by hall staff or your planner in alphabetical order.
These traditional place cards are a classic item that can easily be designed to match your wedding colors and theme. In addition, you can place the guests dinner order on the back to make serving easier on the catering staff.
Rope or Twine Seating Chart
Next on our List of Wedding Seating Chart Ideas is the Hanging Seating Chart. This chart reminds you of a warm summer day with mom’s sweet laundry floating in the breeze. Hung with rope or twine, these adorable card stock Table Guides can be left plain or designed to match your theme or color. Make sure to measure your rope to ensure you have enough room for one card per table to hang evenly spaced.
Also, make sure to purchase cute little designer clothes pins for this seating chart idea. The one in the photo had little hearts adhered to the pins!
Signage Seating Chart
Moving onto the next of our Wedding Seating Chart Ideas is the Sign Seating Chart. This chart has been a very popular option as well. It’s easy to order a custom designed chart in exactly the color, font, and theme you want for these signs. Any local printer or online store will create a sign just for your wedding day.
Most Decorating Companies can rent you a large easel to hold this sign as it greets your guests walking into the reception. Just make sure to specify what type of easel you want. Many offer metal or wood options in a variety of colors. Might as well accent your decor.
Favors Seating Chart
This was an exciting new twist in Wedding Seating Chart Ideas that I saw spring up during Covid. Crafty brides may love this particular idea. Enter: The personalized wedding favor seating chart! So many different way to accomplish this seating chart from adding the name and table number directly to the favor OR designing the table top with multiple level stands marked with the table numbers and the favors on those stands.
