In the long list of destination wedding planning to-do’s, there is usually one task which tends to be overlooked at first, but becomes crucial as the wedding date gets closer. Your wedding table seating plan!
After you know exactly who’s coming to your destination wedding, comes the unenviable job of placing them at specific tables. Some of the groupings will pick themselves – for example, family, work colleagues, school friends. Others might be less convenient, particularly if a person is attending with no partner or colleague, in which case you might have to shoehorn them into a table where you believe they will be best suited. And there are those really delicate situations like figuring out where to seat divorced parents or step parents.
You can let your guests fend for themselves but it can create some awkward situations that both you and your guests can do without. To help you navigate all the do’s and don’ts of wedding table seating planning, I’m sharing this awesome infographic by Commins & Co. It highlights some of the potential pitfalls of wedding table seating planning and suggests ways in which you can overcome them.
