Wedding Reception Seating
Figuring out the guest seating arrangements for your wedding reception may be one of the items on your to-do list you have been putting off for a while. Seating is one of the items I almost always must beg my brides to work on with me. It really is not so very hard to figure out what to do. So, to help you get started here is a easy how-to guide on getting it together.
Easy as 1,2,3
1. Draw your floor plan with all of your tables placed in the arrangement you have decided on.
2. Number each table-this helps you group your guests together by table number. And also helps the venue staff set out the appropriate number of place settings at each table. You write in the number of guests at each table for the staff to follow when setting up.
3. Assign each guest a table number based on how many guests can sit at a table, and whom you would like to seat together. Guests pick up their escort card (at the escort card table you have set-up conveniently located right outside of the dinning area). If you are also using place cards-all you have to do is write on a piece of paper each table number and the names of each guest who you have planned to sit at each table. Then simply place the place card for each guest at the table and seat you have assigned.
Piece of Cake!
