Funky Seating Plans

6 Jul

The more we have been searching wedding suppliers for amazing and original ideas the more we have discovered some gems. If you are going down the formal route of having a set seated wedding breakfast, in order to avoid any wedding breakfast seating fracas you will need a seating plan. A seating plan is a traditional way of informing your guests on where they are sitting for their meal however, it doesn’t need to LOOK traditional. Here are some beauties that I have found whilst searching for seating inspiration for our own wedding.

This beautiful antique window seating plan comes from Tennessee based company Beyond White. The lovely vintage window is an original antique penned with your guests to make the perfect addition for any rustic or vintage inspired wedding.


These distinctive old keys are an unusual take on an escort type seating plan. By attaching a tag to the key with your guests name and where they are to be seated the keys can double up as favours for your guests to take away as a momento from your big day. The keys are from Arizona based Dreamy Weddings.

Another beautiful idea from one more US company, Missouri based South House Boutique. Not only is the bunting pretty, it also adds plenty of rustic charm to any country wedding, it is also totally re-useable for future celebrations as a reminder of your wedding day. You could also use extra chalk bunting around your venue to let them know to help themselves to your sweetie buffet for example or to simply say ‘welcome!’



Seen on Tried and True, another fab escort card style idea that can also double up as either a reception drink or favours is this cute soda bottle idea. You could replace the soda for absolutely anything – bottles of beer, cocktails, mini champagne bottles – the list is endless!


A very simple yet effective seating plan using pegs to hold your seating cards. Either use the escort card idea where guests find their named card which also tell them their table number or you could have the full table of guests names on each card. These lovely birdcage card holders are from lovely online home and gift store Eve.


A popular idea for a wedding table plan is to use several frames in whatever style compliments your wedding. You can either use matching frames for a more modern look or different styles for a more shabby chic feel. These frames are from decor hire company Vintage Flair but you can find frames all over the internet, high street and charity shops depending on what style you’d like.
