SEATING CHARTS

 

Here Muee gives you some tips of seating charts.

 

 

Pick your tables 
Provide more flexibility with last-minute seating changes (because it's easier to squeeze in a chair), but be sure not to make tables too large, as that will hinder guests' ability to chat with one another. "Aim for the sweet spot of eight people per table,” Hanlin suggests. Long, rectangular tables allow more people to be seated at each, a great solution for couples with large families or a big wedding party—though guests will still only be able to chat easily with those across and on either side of them.
 

Make space 
When factoring in how many tables your venue can accommodate, don't forget that guests (and servers) will need enough room to move between them. "When the table is set, the seats of the chairs should be kissing the linen, not pushed all the way under,” says Hanlin. This way, you'll ensure guests can be a comfortable distance from the table when they're seated.
 

Seat yourself first
Important guests at the party, you and your spouse-to-be should decide where you'll sit first. Sweetheart tables for two will isolate you from the rest of the group. Instead, place yourself with family or your wedding party, depending on your preference (or family politics). Hanlin suggests considering a large head table to accommodate the bridal party, their plus-ones, and close family.
 

Group your guests
Breaking down your guest list into groups of people with something in common, Hanlin says. Some groups will come together naturally: Seat your first cousins, college friends, and coworkers at tables together. Delegate to your parents, too. They are best suited to match the couples and individuals they added to your guest list. Also consider playing with personalities. "If you have a hilarious single guy friend, put him at a table with college friends who are fun too,” Hanlin suggests. As for guests without a plus-one, "do a little matchmaking if you can,” but avoid a singles-only table. Instead, mix them in with couples who have similar interests for the best conversation.
 

Stage the room
If are grouped, decide where to situate them in the space. "Think about sight lines,” Hanlin says. "The bride and groom should be in the center of the room, with their backs to as few guests as possible.” If close family members or the bridal party are not at your table, situate them nearby. Place grandparents away from speakers, and reserve tables near them for a younger crowd instead— they're more likely to hit the dance floor.
