So one of the things I chose to do at my wedding was to have a reception seating chart. We had a sit down dinner and no excess seating so we thought a seating chart would be a good idea. So then the creative cap had to come on. What was a cute way to do the seating chart? I wanted it to look pretty and fit in with the decor. One weekend in October we visited our wedding venue to show it to my in-laws and my husband. That’s right, my husband let me pick the wedding venue without ever having seen it in person. I think the words “golf course wedding” helped him agree! He’s a keeper for sure!

So as we were visiting the venue a couple was about to be married there and I drew inspiration from their seating chart! The idea was to buy a beautiful frame (harder done than you would think) and to have some fabric with the chart pinned on.
We ran with that. We were unable to find a really pretty frame as big as we wanted so we ended up with a nice plain black one. We took a thin foam board and covered it in dark purple fabric and then placed it inside the frame without the glass.
We printed the seating arrangements off the computer and cut them into circles for each table. We took them and stuck them to the fabric (with what I cannot remember) I’m going to say scrapbook tape? But it can be done many ways. Another way I had seen it done with having each one stuck on with pearl push pins but I couldn’t find any.
After sticking them on we added these cute jeweled flowers to each one for a pretty little touch and at the top of the seating chart we put a big rectangle for the head table.
Most of the credit for this being done must be given to my mom. I think I remember it was a last minute thing and I was already getting beyond stressed and my mom did wonders with my idea!
So this was our idea for the seating chart. I thought it turned out really cute. We had a pretty big frame and then stood it up on an easel that the venue provided.
I am quite excited to get to go to a wedding this weekend. My sweet friend Maggie is getting married and I am so excited for her! And today is my dear friend Amanda’s birthday so a shout out to both of those wonderful friends who I have known since high school! I can’t wait to see them both this weekend and celebrate Maggie and Josh!
