Figuring out your wedding reception seating plan is no easy feat, but when it comes to plated dinner service and large guest counts, it’s kind of essential!
You may want to keep certain people apart from each other; that one crazy friend who likes a drink or five must be seated far from stiff upper-lipped Aunt Margo! Factor in food allergies and family politics and you’ve got yourself one giant puzzle!

Just as you’ve chosen the perfect centerpieces, guest favors, and bouquets, your reception seating chart is yet another wonderful opportunity to showcase elegance and flair on your wedding day. You can even add a little humor and playfulness to the formality; there are endless options.
