Wedding Planning - 4/3/2024

A variety of minuscule wedding tasks are easier to cross off your list- even tasks that are difficult can be done with minimal stress. Making a seating chart may be a task that is difficult for some due to the fact that one will have to arrange their family members and friends based on each other's feelings and connections.

When arranging wedding seats, it is essential to start planning at least 2 to 3 weeks prior to the big special day, once you have heard back from everyone who has been invited. If you are struggling with placement, you can always consult with a wedding professional. In this blog written by the wedding professionals at Oklahoma Bridal, we will discuss how to make a wedding seating chart without stressing out.

How to make a seating chart:

●Table shape: Once the guest list is finalized, you will need to figure out how many seats you will need. It is important to keep in mind that the shape of the table plays a key role. While rectangular tables make it easier for guests to chat, round tables will make it easy for you to assign seating.
●Pen and paper: It is helpful to map out where everyone sits on paper. That way you can get a visual image of where guests will be put. You can either use pen and paper or use an online tool like All Seated.
●Seat you two first: Since it is your wedding day, your wedding table should be front and center. Typically you will sit by yourselves at a table or at a table that consists of your close friends or relatives.
●Seat wedding party: Depending on the size of your wedding party, and how many chose to invite plus ones, you can either seat everyone at one long head table, or divide the room into its own seated sections.

Though many may stress about assigning seats at their wedding, this is a miniscule task that no one should worry about. Whether you choose to seat everyone together or divide everyone up into their own sections is solely based on your personal preferences.
