How to Create a Clear Wedding Seating Chart

seating charts for your reception

As the host of your wedding, you want nothing less than to make every single guest feels excellent at your wedding, from the moment they arrive to the moment they leave.

Of course, a good seating chart will help with that, as it will provide you and your guests with the certainty that they will be seated near people they like (or at least are probable to like).

How do you make sure the seating chart is crystal clear for everyone and nobody gets lost at a different table?

Here are some tips for you – read on and find out more.

· Get someone to help. It’s easy to get lost in seating chart translation when you have a million other things to do and when you want to make sure every single detail is perfectly planned. Ask your Maid of Honor, your mom, or even your father to help you create the perfect guest seating chart – one that not only brings people who are alike together, but also makes it easy for people to find their seats.

· Keep it nice and neat. Your seating chart and your place cards shouldn’t be all about the design. While the design and aesthetic are important, you will want to make sure that your Seating Chart and Place cards clear and concise. You don’t want your guests struggling to find their name and table on an overdesigned chart or desperately trying to find their place cards are on a cluttered table.

· Pick an easy rule. The easiest and most intuitive ordering rule you can find is to arrange everyone’s names in alphabetical order. This way, when people reach your wedding reception, they will automatically search for their names in the seating chart and easily find out where they are meant to take a seat. Easy, seamless and it doesn’t interfere with whatever design you might have decided on!
