Opting for a pre-arranged seating arrangement or not should not be a major factor to stress you out. However, it’s always important to seek out your options and explore different alternatives. Having seating assignments should not be as troublesome for you and your visitors. You don’t want them to scrutinize the seating plan as if they are looking through a list of those who passed the semester and those who didn’t. You want them to feel as if they are highly welcomed in the event.
Seating arrangement works well when you know that there is some personal issue with your guests. It’s also a solution to maximize the space knowing that there are limited seats expected. In lavish weddings where there are about 200 guests invited, the chances of disorder might be a little high. Of course, families and friends would prefer to seat close to each other which might end up battling for seats.
Guests ignoring the seating plan which you’ve put an effort in making is the last thing you want to happen. There are plenty of ways to catch the attention of your guests for them to follow their designated seats. Here are some of the creative suggestions for creating a seating pattern to your wedding.

Guests are represented and distributed based on the designated seat on the graph. At the latter part of the occasion where everyone is slightly getting tipsy, seating plans don’t usually matter. Assigning a seating outline is a difficult task to undertake during normal and big wedding occasions. A great DIY way to make the cards more aesthetically pleasing is to use heart shaped sparklers
attached to the note cards itself.

The moment your guests find out about their number, the next step is to help them discover which particular seat they have to take around the table. For lavish weddings, delegating a particular seating arrangement is very significant. The best way to do that is by utilizing spot cards.

with wedding sparklers in them for each guest to pick up when seating.

These items may seem unusual to see in weddings but you’ll certainly entertain your guests. Bloom vases and cattle rustler caps are unique method of persuading your guests to follow their assigned seats. By having the wedding sparklers
on the table or by the seating chart, this allows for all the guests to easily obtain a wedding sparkler for the grand wedding exit.
