From the top table and guest seating plan to table names and table trivia, this article takes a closer look at the wedding table plan and provides ideas and suggestions to help you create the perfect wedding table plan for your big day.
The Wedding Table Plan
The wedding table plan. Such a simple thing to do you would think, but as soon as you get stuck into it you will realise what a little swine it is to sort out. However, without a wedding table plan your day could turn somewhat into a farce, with guests literally sprinting across the room to grab the prime seats!
Each and every one of your guests will have their own little nuances and chances are that it won’t be just a matter of putting A with B and so on – you need to delve deep into the minds of your guests, think about their likes and dislikes and think twice before putting your WW2 veteran Grandpa beside Heinrich your German pen-pal!
Taking your time when drafting the Seating Plan is worth every second - after all you want to sit at the top table, look around the room and see people getting along, chatting and laughing, not staring into their soup wishing it were all over.
The articles entitled The Top Table and The Seating Plan for Guests look at all the factors to consider before submitting the final table plan to the venue or stationers.
We strongly advise that you take your time and read through all the information carefully. As long as you do this, you should be able to avoid the musical chairs charade that has happened at many weddings in the past, and is sure to happen at many more in the future.
