There's more to consider than just your choice of venue when arranging wedding hire, and dealing with aspects such as seating plans for your wedding reception in advance will ensure there's less to worry about as the big day approaches.
Event coordinator Jessica Meiczinger offers tips for creating the ideal seating plan for wedding receptions, which will help ensure that all your guests are appropriately seated and should minimise problems on the day. You can start planning your wedding reception as soon as everyone has sent their RSVP, when you have an accurate idea of precisely who will and won't be at the event.
Speaking to your event coordinator or directly to the venue itself should allow you to obtain a blank floor plan, which you can arrange according to your needs and preferences, or you may prefer to choose from a number of ready-made seating arrangements that have been used successfully in the past. When creating your own wedding plan, you may prefer to plan it on a computer or hand draw it for convenience.
When arranging tables, you should consider factors such as the age of guests and their relation to the bride and groom, as well as to other guests in attendance. Generally, the head table will be reserved for the bridal party or close family members, with other tables being grouped according to family connections, friends or work colleagues, with the dance floor in the centre of the room.
