Buttercup014:  It’s nice if the style of the seating chart reflects the style of the wedding. Tell us about your wedding.

My tip is to use post-it notes on a blank wall. Write your guests’ names on the notes and start assigning them to tables. It’s so easy to move people around until you come up with your final seating plan.

We did ours in Excel. Did a master list of names and addresses for invitations, with a column for number attending. When all the guests had responded, we copied the document, then deleted the names of those who said no and the non-name columns, and moved the names around and pasted them in groups of 8 or 10.

We made a seating chart with window panes, since it went with our rustic wedding. We put names in alphabetical order with the table number next to the name. We chose to do it alphabetically, rather than by table, just because it’s easier for people to find their name.

Buttercup014:  I saw some beautiful seating charts on Pinterest that I wanted to do. I ended up getting a cork board, painting the frame to match wedding colors, and printing out the seating chart in a pretty colored font. 

Ideal? No. Did the job? Yeah. And it ended up outside the door to the reception hall, so everyone literally looked at it once. Whatever. One less thing I had to stress out about.

Basically, pick your battles. Not one I wanted to fight.
