Seating...where do you start??!
It can be a problem. Stay cool and stay organized.
Here is a trusty guide to help
with your seating.
Now remember to consider the size of the tables:
36" table seats 4 or less
48" table seats
6-8 (6 comfortably)
60" table seats 8-10 (8 very comfortably, but most people do put 10 at these; fewer centerpieces after
72" table seats 10-12 (10 very comfortably)
The next question is...what's considered a good table location?
Forget it. Don't make yourself crazy. There is no way you'll keep everyone happy.
Some people think sitting close to the
DJ is the worst! Others think sitting close to the DJ means you have the best seats in the house. So why worry?
other thing, if you are assigning table numbers, you must get this information to your calligrapher (if he/she is doing the
seating cards) in plenty of time. (Ask what the lead time is). As well, remember...there will always be changes. Again, ask
your calligrapher how they want to handle the last minute drop-outs and drop-ins.
