Find your seat and bon appetit! The reception can be the most fun part of the wedding for your guests. It can also be the most awkward. Every wedding is unique and so are the relationships of the people present. Some guests might be close friends and some might not like each other. Family can be great, but sometimes those relationships are strained. Some of your guests might be the life of the party, but some might not know anyone else there. Making a seating chart for your reception can help everyone have a blast on your big day! If you have members of your family at odds with each other, put them at two different tables. If you have a friend there that does not know anyone, place them with an outgoing and inclusive table.
One of the things you will need to do is communicate seating arrangements with your guests. Having a seating chart at the front of the reception will give your guests direction! You can get creative and have fun with your seating chart. Below are a few of our favorite seating charts!
Each wedding is just as unique as your guests! Use these ideas to help you navigate the arrangement of your reception. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about how to setup your big day!
