You’ve navigated the guest list, decided who will and who will not get a plus one and mailed out your invitations. The time has come, and your RSVPs have started to roll in. Before you know it, the RSVP date has come and passed, and you have your final guest list for wedding day! Now the fun begins – seating assignments. Now that you know who is coming, you’ve got to figure out where everyone is sitting – assuming you do assigned seating. Check out some of these fun ways to display seating assignments. 


Window Pane

Looking for something with versatile style beyond the standard poster? A window pane can be vintage, rustic or industrial. It blends in well with most styles and adds a little extra design wise for a seating chart.

For a more glamorous and elegant look, find an oversized mirror and have the seating chart written directly on the mirror.

Greenery Wall

Tack your escort cards or table cards with names onto a greenery wall and decorate it with extra flowers. This one is sure to wow at any garden party or whimsical style reception.

Escort Card Holders

Add a personal touch with unique escort card holders. Incorporate a piece of your personality with a holder that relates to something you love.

Folded Escort Cards

The most traditional option, especially if you are having a seated dinner, would be folded escort cards that stand on their own. Try adding some signage or flowers to the table for some extra décor.

Again, a look that can be both rustic or vintage. Hang escort cards or table signs with clothespins off a string hanging from a frame.

Wooden sign

Add some rustic flare and use a wooden sign to hang your assignments from.

By Table Number

Probably the most common way to order assignments is by table number. Have each table number printed or written onto its own card.

Rather than by table number, sort your seating chart alphabetically. This might help guests find their names a little bit quicker.

Open Seating Sign

If you opt not to do assigned seating, be sure to let you guests know with a simple sign.
