I ended up making my own. I used a pin board, painted the frame of it, and made it pretty with flowers and nice good quality paper, then sat it on an easel. I’m in Aus too and remember looking at them online, think on zazzle maybe?, but couldn’t find one that suited, and they were rather expensive!

NowraJanBride:  I bought a cork board and paint in our wedding color. Painted the frame.

I’m going to type the seating chart in, print it and tack it up. It won’t be pretty, but can you remember a single seating chart display topics seen at a wedding?

Weddingwire. You can actually build the room and tables….

My venue gave me a powerpoint with the layout.  I just rearranged the layout as I needed and added the guest names and sent it back to them.

Ask you venue if they have a layout you can use.

I used theknot.com – it also allowed me to build my own room and tables. It also helped that I used them for my guest list so all of our guests were on there so all I had to do was plug them into their seats.

NowraJanBride: if by seating chart you mean a room layout with tables that show where each person is supposed to be seated (used for planning purposes), the ladies above provided some of the best online options.

Alternatively, if you mean a board that directs each guest to their pre-designated spot at a table (used to be informative and part of the decor on the wedding day), I posted the template and my experience for the one we used to make two charts, one for upstairs and one for downstairs at our wedding venue.

This type of “seating chart” is also sometimes referred to as an “escort chart.” I’ll include the link and two photos from our wedding day to give you an idea:

NowraJanBride:  i didn’t buy one, i just took my list of people that RSVP’d yes, and wrote them out on a piece of paper. Each table could sit 10 people. I didn’t go crazy for something like that. Then my venue gave me a layout of the room and told me to write the table numbers and number of guests at each table

We didn’t use a seating chart, we used escort frames!

Not cheaper by any means but I loved the look.

 DIY posterboard is from Michael’s. Template is from Etsy. Our theme was “Love is Sweet” so each table was named after a candy.
