1. Based off of your final guest count, simply write your guests’ names on the velcroed tabs based on who you would like to sit next to each other and table number precedence. Normally family and close friends are seated in the lower numbers (one, two, etc.) that are in the beginning of this planner. Keep your room layout in mind as table 3 might be closer to the bride and groom than table 1, depending on the length of the head table. You can seat up to 10 guests at each table, depending on the venue's table sizes and your preference. Gently pull tabs off the velcro
to rearrange and move as you please to make your perfect seating arrangement.
2. Once finalized, use your seating arrangement planner to create your table placements cards. Don't forget to find out if your venue has table numbers or if you need to buy them as well.
3. Finally, use your seating arrangement planner to place your table numbers at each table of the venue accordingly; placing the lower numbers (closest guests) nearest to the head table. Coordinate with your venue when you can stop by to set up the placement cards and table numbers (the earlier the better).
• It's very important to talk with your venue to coordinate how many tables you will have, how many guests can fit at each table, and the overall table pattern (U-shaped, lines, or scattered). They will need your final guest count.
• You should not have to erase a name from a tab unless they cancel, but should you make an error on a tab, you can use rubbing alcohol or you can even go over the permanent marker with a dry erase marker, then rub off and reuse.
• Lastly, this is NOT water resistant in anyway and do not leave in exposed sunlight for an extended amount of time (for example in your car).
