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!
