If you’ve gotten through this stage of planning your wedding you’ll appreciate how tricky seating arrangements can be. We don’t usually share things that have already made an appearance on the web but we loved this genius tutorial from Something Turquoise so much we asked Stefanie from Lavender Joy Weddings and Ryan Ray to shoot this easy (and budget friendly!) seating chart tutorial for Once Wed. Isn’t it great?!?
Supplies: Inexpensive kraft paper or postal wrap, (Pictured is postal wrap from The Container Store for $2.99/roll), scissors, post-it notes, glass, and a pen.
1. Using the glass as a guide, draw circles onto the kraft paper to represent the floor plan for the reception.
2. Cut each post-it into strips (trim them if they overlap each other).
3. Write the names of your wedding guests on the post-it strips, designating a color for each group of guests (i.e., his family, her family, work, college…).
4. Arrange the post-it strips on the floor plan to create an easily-adjustable seating chart. Move ‘guests’ around until you’re pleased with the arrangement!
