There are many details that go into
planning a wedding, like wedding supply rental, which many guests do not think twice about.
When planning a seating chart, it can be daunting to figure out where
to place everyone—especially for larger weddings. At the end of
the day, your guests are there to celebrate your wedding, so you don’t
have to over think it. However, here are some simple tips on making this
task easy and organized.
Once you have all of your RSVPs, usually a couple of weeks before the big
day, you should begin planning your
seating chart. Nothing is worse than trying to plan a seating arrangement the day before
your wedding. At this point you should know the venue space and what type
of tables you will have. Either use a spreadsheet or draw out a diagram
to group guests into groups that would sit together, such as family, work
friends, and college friends. Enlist the help of your parents to decide
where family friends should sit and avoid any family tension.
Decide Where You Are Sitting
There are many options for where the bride and groom sit during the reception.
Traditionally, the bride and groom sit at a head table with their bridal
party. Many couples choose to have a sweetheart table, which can be a
nice way to spend some one on one time, even if just for a few minutes.
Create a Fun Environment
Without spending too much time analyzing every detail of the seating chart,
it is important to keep a few things in mind to make the evening more
enjoyable. Seat younger guests closer to the bar and dance floor, while
seating older guests towards the back.
No seating chart can be complete without wedding accessories and wedding
supply rentals to cover all your table and table linen needs. American

wedding accessories in Austin to complete your reception. Call (512) 236-5773 for more information.
