Please, take your seat!

The wedding table plan.

The 'Leaf' table plan

One of the most important pieces of on the day wedding stationery!

Your table plan or seating chart will let your guests know where they will be sitting (and who they will be sitting with) at your wedding breakfast.

Deciding on where you are going to seat your guests can get pretty stressful - does Becky know Kate? who will get on with Uncle John?* Can Nanny hear the speeches from that table? These could be some of the questions running through your head whilst your living room is covered in loads of pieces of paper (pretending to be tables) and hundreds of post it notes (with all of your guests names scribbled on them).

*Obviously no offence intended, your Uncle John is probably a really nice person.

We've come up with a few hints and tips to help you on your way in deciding who is going to sit where at your wedding breakfast...

1) Get organised!

Make sure that you know the layout of the room, the amount of people coming and how many tables you have before making any decisions. It will be helpful to draw out the tables and their locations before getting people's names down. Use a pencil instead of a pen - just in case you want to make some changes! Post it notes are also great if you're not 100% and want to move people around until you're happy with the arrangement.
