Everything is finally ready for your bi day! The wedding dress is being chosen, you have arranged the church and the venue, you know what is going to be the song of your entrance and the song of your first dance and the invitations have already been at your guests’ hands. And now, sorry to tell you that, but the hard part is coming. The seating arrangement. Take a deep breath because you will be in front of dilemmas you haven’t even though about. You gathered 10 tips to help you get through it easily.
1.FIRST OF ALL PLAN
A really good idea is to be organized from the beginning. Make a list with all your guests and cross check the ones that will attend your wedding.
2.VIP GUESTS GO FIRST
Definitely there will be guests that no matter what you do, you know from the first moment where they are going to sit. So, first of all place those guest to their seats and then you can worry for the others.
3.DEAREST GO CLOSER
This is your day and it means that you can sit with anyone you want at your table. We know that usually you choose to sit with your parents but if you want to sit with your closest friends who would say no? It is your choice.
4.GROUP YOUR GUESTS
There are some of your guests that do fit within groups by their own. So those guests will sit at the same table. Co-workers go together, friends from school will sit at the same table and neighbors the same. Trusts us, a big number of your guests will get off your shoulders with this grouping.
Forget the single’s table. It is so old-fashioned. If you have guests that will come solo to your wedding, then make sure that you will arrange them to tables with guests that they do have something in common. If this is too hard, then just put them at the table with the most sociable and friendly guests.
6.GRANPAS AND GRANNIES
Do not forget about them! Make sure their table are easily accessible and that they don’t have to walk around the venue to reach the restrooms. On top of that make sure they are able to hear the music from where they sit but it is not too much for them. Away from speakers!!
Never separate families or couples. Unless you want to have a kids’ table or a table just for the cousins.
8.DO NOT OVERLOAD THE TABLES
Don’t try to fit more guest at one table than usual. No one wants their neighbor’s elbow on their salad. Keep a comfortable number of guests at each table.
Have you ever thought about it? Instead of leaving your guests playing music chairs around the tables put their names at the seats you want. It is just an idea…
10.COUNT ON BEST BEHAVIOR
Try to avoid dramas. There is no need to put two exes sit next to each other. But even if there is no other solution, just count on the fact that your guests are adults and they are there to celebrate your happy day and they will have their best behavior for you.
