The seating plan has been finalised

10 days to go and I’ve now finalised our seating plan.  In the last week there have been new additions, lots of juggling of seats and a few requests catered for.

I’m pretty sure there’s no one from our wedding other than possibly my Mum reading this post.  And she knows where she’s sat anyway!  Plus, it’s all stuck down now…no swapsies allowed!

As an afterthought I probably should have photographed on a surface brighter than concrete, but I photographed early this morning and the grass outside was still covered in dew.

I bought a browny-grey canvas from a local craft shop for £15 along with the tiny ribbon roses for 49p in the bargain bucket.  The ribbon was £3 from Hobbycraft and I have enough left over to use for bouquets and to help decorate our card box.  The other card was left over from when I made our invitations.

For each table I printed all guest names onto white paper, which I then mounted onto the dark brown card.  Three tiny roses are alongside the edge of each table listing, and I cut large table numbers out of black card to go alongside.

The top table was laid out on circular white slips of paper with a large strip of brown card as the backing.

I also printed out a list of who chose what to eat for the day to be placed on each table to help both the caterers and the guests remember.  They ordered their food a long while ago!

I was inspired by this design I discovered on Pinterest for our seating plan.  After a bit of scouting around I actually discovered that you could order this board, personalised for your wedding.  But at a cost…£180!  Hence why I gave it a go making something similar myself.  If you’re looking for some inspiration for seating plans, I pinned several while I was deciding upon how we were going to display ours, so check out my Pinterest board for some ideas.

Have you ever been unhappy with where you were seated at a wedding?
If you are married, how did you decide who to sit next to who?

    1. I know! It’s come round so quickly. We had a few problems with who to sit where, but I think you made the best choice by letting your sister organise your one!

  1. Wow this looks amazing! And you saved so much money making it yourself.
    I can’t wait to see pictures of your wedding (I hope you do a recap…). So exciting. Not long left at all!

    1. Thank you! I can’t believe how much money we have saved by doing things ourselves…yet everything still costs so much money!
      There is a wedding recap on the cards! I’m hoping to have a couple of pictures to put up on the Sunday the day after the wedding but we head off on honeymoon at a silly time on the Monday morning so will do a proper recap when I get back from that. :)

    1. Exactly! Although it might be more faff and stress and time I’m glad that we have been able to choose things exactly how we want them for the day!

    1. How personal it must have been to have just six guests at your wedding. There are so many formalities that come with having a larger guest list, – it must have been nice to do exactly what you wanted to do without the pressure of doing what others felt you should.
