Although sometimes, guests tend to choose their seats, mapping out a seating arrangement for your wedding is necessary. It can be a daunting task, thus why you need to have an idea of what factors to consider when deciding your wedding’s seating chart. To help tone down the stress and worry, take a peek at some of the ideas below!

●               Consider Your Friends

Have your friends, usually your bridal party and groomsmen, close to you when arranging a seating pattern. It’ll send the message of their closeness to your heart. Also, they are the ones your eyes will probably lock with the most, and you can exchange smiles at intervals too.

It helps for emotional support and a kind of good cheer if you have friends that will not hesitate to cheer you up, no matter the occasion. Please give them a table and have them sit around it with their plus-ones.

●               Place The Parents

It will be wonderful to have parents of both parties sitting together at a table. This way, extended and distant relatives get to meet and know themselves and catch up on old times.

However, if there is any party in sour terms with the other-say, a divorced party or family resentment-they should be made to sit with other relatives at opposite ends of different tables.  

●               Group Your Guests

Get a grip on who knows who, and place them on the same table. They can be schoolmates, colleagues, teachers, etc. Also, consider their ages, background, and interest; you don’t want to place your lecturer amidst your schoolmates.

Be sure they get along, too, to avoid unnecessary tension. The last thing you want on your day is an outburst from bottled feelings of years past.
