Table Plan Ideas for Weddings & Parties

Table Plan

Wedding & Party Season is gaining momentum and is due to peak in July. For an informal party it often works well for guests to help themselves from a buffet and sit where ever they choose. For a larger, formal party and especially a wedding then a table plan is essential.

The ‘top table’ must always include the most important guests – for a wedding the bride and groom & their parents, best man & bridesmaid. Tables may then be numbered or named after something significant such as favourite places.

The table plan can become a work of art in itself! It is often placed at the entrance to the reception so sets the style. Here are some ideas;
