Look­ing for more than 15 peo­ple for a wed­ding? Then we advise you to pre­pare name cards and a seat­ing plan for guests. This is a styl­ish piece of hol­i­day dec­o­ra­tion that came to us from Europe. You and your fiancé choose where each of the guests will sit, and beau­ti­ful­ly inform them about it! In the clas­sic sense, seat­ing cards are small post­cards with table num­bers and guest names. But why not present even such sim­ple infor­ma­tion not sim­ply, but with taste? Chan­fash­ion ready to inspire!

Seating plan for guests: unnecessary worries or necessity?

A good plan is a beau­ti­ful­ly designed Table lay­out plan in the ban­quet hall. For all tables, num­bers and a list of guests who will sit at them are indi­cat­ed. When the invi­tees gath­er in a restau­rant, they find their name on the dia­gram, find out the table num­ber and calm­ly go to the appoint­ed place. Such visu­al nav­i­ga­tion allows guests to quick­ly ori­ent them­selves in the envi­ron­ment and take their seats with­out con­fu­sion and con­fu­sion.

Inter­est­ing­ly, in the US, only the dis­tri­b­u­tion of tables is wel­come, and in Europe, seat­ing with spe­cif­ic seats. How it will be at your wed­ding is a mat­ter of taste and per­son­al pref­er­ence.

Where and how to accommodate guests?

To avoid crowds, the pre­pared plan is installed in a con­spic­u­ous place — at the entrance to the ban­quet hall. If there are a lot of peo­ple, you can pre­pare sev­er­al copies and put them on dif­fer­ent sides. It is desir­able that there be a respon­si­ble per­son at the wed­ding who, on occa­sion, helped the invi­tees fig­ure out what was what. Entrust this mat­ter to the wed­ding plan­ner, a close rel­a­tive or one of your friends. The main thing is that he under­stands the seat­ing chart and is aware of the list of invi­tees.

It is not nec­es­sary to tell the guests in advance who and with whom will sit. Per­haps, on the eve of the wed­ding, you will have to make adjust­ments.

How to draw up a seating plan for guests?

  • The main guide­line can be the style of the hol­i­day, the cho­sen theme or the time of year. The col­or palette should be com­bined with oth­er wed­ding acces­sories, such as invi­ta­tions.
  • The base is made of paper, thick card­board, beau­ti­ful fab­ric, wood or oth­er nat­ur­al mate­r­i­al. The text can be writ­ten with chalk or spe­cial paints.
  • The size of the can­vas is deter­mined by the num­ber of tables. The scheme should put the names of all invi­tees in a way that is easy to read.
  • The plan is dec­o­rat­ed with flow­ers, dec­o­ra­tive frames or themed gar­lands.

To des­ig­nate tables, ordi­nary num­bers in var­i­ous inter­pre­ta­tions are most often used. But you can go fur­ther — des­ig­nate them in accor­dance with the theme of the wed­ding. For exam­ple: the names of cities, fruits or flow­ers; names of celebri­ties or movie char­ac­ters. Fan­ta­sy and orig­i­nal approach is always great!

Guest seating cards — a stylish and useful element of the holiday

Name cards are part of the seat­ing plan, as are table num­bers. Their pur­pose is the cor­rect place­ment of guests and a spec­tac­u­lar dec­o­ra­tion of the over­all pic­ture of the inte­ri­or. They can also be a nice keep­sake. To do this, they are sup­ple­ment­ed with words of grat­i­tude and beau­ti­ful draw­ings.

Choose a design

Cards should be com­bined with oth­er dec­o­ra­tive ele­ments. In the design, it is bet­ter to adhere to a sin­gle style with a table arrange­ment scheme.

The form is arbi­trary, but the size should ful­ly accom­mo­date the names of the invi­tees. The text is writ­ten in large, leg­i­ble type.

When sign­ing cards, it is bet­ter to indi­cate the name and sur­name of the guest. This is espe­cial­ly true for a large-scale hol­i­day.

If you are plan­ning Cozy wed­ding with a small num­ber of invi­tees, try to beat the design of the cards with the help of pho­tos. Such acces­sories cause a spe­cial delight and ten­der­ness!

Table num­bers are placed in a con­spic­u­ous place, usu­al­ly in the cen­ter. Per­son­al cards are placed near the plate or on top of it.

Hunt for ideas!

  • In the form of a post­card

If we talk about the clas­sics, then this is a rec­tan­gu­lar shape. But the card can be any­thing: a flower, a heart, a star, or what­ev­er the dec­o­ra­tor comes up with. Usu­al­ly they are installed “house”.

  • On hold­er or stand

Each copy is placed on a minia­ture pedestal. To do this, make a small inci­sion in it and insert a card. Any the­mat­ic items can become a hold­er.

  • On bon­bon­nierkah

Small sou­venirs with per­son­al­ized post­cards look very nice. This approach will please the guests and will look orig­i­nal.

Unusu­al option in an easy man­ner of exe­cu­tion. The shape and design is cho­sen based on the style of the hol­i­day.

  • sweet seat­ing

Cards on deli­cious “stands” are a pleas­ant start to a good wed­ding din­ner. Desserts should be small but cute.

  • fruit seat­ing

Great idea for sea­son­al wed­dings. Each month has its own fruits and berries, which means you can always sur­prise guests with a deli­cious, healthy treat.

A light aper­i­tif nev­er hurts 🙂 Attach the cards to a glass of cham­pagne or wine. In sum­mer, fresh and lemon­ade is rel­e­vant, and in win­ter — aro­mat­ic mulled wine.

Now you know what the seat­ing plan should be. Chan­fash­ion as always side by side, and we have a lot of cool ideas for your unfor­get­table wed­ding!
