How To Create Your Wedding Reception Seating Chart

Choosing the right type of seating arrangement for your wedding reception is a big and important decision. After you choose how you'd like to seat your guests, there are a few logistical items you need to create to ensure the plan goes off seamlessly. I'm going to walk through the 4 different types of wedding reception seating arrangements:

1) Open seating

2) Open seating with a few reserved tables

3) Everyone assigned to a specific table

4) Everyone assigned to a specific table and a specific seat

I'll talk about which ones are most popular and the best for your dinner service style (ie family style vs. buffet vs. plated), as well as the items you need to create for each one, including some examples.

Side note, apologies for the quality of this video! The audio is really good and the onscreen examples are clear, but I'm sorry my face is a little fuzzy :(
