    We've decided to set assigned seating as we have 61 guests coming to our DW! As such I'm looking for ideas, suggestions & what past brides have done for making a seating chart and/or table #'s!

    thanks :)

      Depends on what your theme is. My suggestion is that you look at the planning journals part of this forum. A lot of brides have put up their planning journals with details and photos. It might help generate some ideas for you. Another option is to do a search on theknot.com; they have a ton of photos that are searchable. 

       

      Good luck!

        My FI and I have done a lot of travelling together, so we've decided to name our tables after places we have been instead of using numbers. We will have a photo of us on each table taken in that country. Then we will have a vintage style world map for our seating plan with a list of the names of people sitting in each country. Hope that helps. :)

          Do you have a picture of what your map looked like

          after you added all the names ?

                  LOVE this idea! I've used it for weddings in the past too! I would only suggest putting a table numbers somewhere on the back of the photo or table card for the serving staff. They usually ask for that :)

                    another option is places the couple frequent or have been, can be local or international. The guest seated at those table are directly related to the locale. School friends at the table named after the eatery on campus

                      This is the best photo I could find of the map/table plan, We had 5 tables for our wedding and we chose our 5 favourite cities/countries that were spread out across the map - San Francisco, New York(oor, Italy (where we got married), Beijing and Sydney.

                       These were on the tables.
