A table plan or seating plan is essential to inform you guest where they will spending their evening. This is always a delicate part of your overall organisation. Not only must your table plan be functional but it must also add to and match the decoration of the evening. Let Invited to help with the layout of this most important element. We have a large collection of seating plans available.
A seating plan can be one of the most difficult things to organise. Family politics, guests that pull out at the last minute or unexpected arrivals. Leave yourself plenty of time, but don't order you table plan to early, even if you are sure there will be no more changes...there will be. If you are ordering your table plan with Invited to we will start the initial maquette or design with the names and tables you have now, however we suggest that you approve your table plan 10 days before your wedding. than gives us a few days to produce, and also gives the post a week to deliver.
There are three main styles of seating plan. Your selection will depend on the type of reception you desire. Whether you wish to have a well organised assigned seating plan or a more casual Freedom styled wedding reception. Each has its positives and each style of table plan will help create the atmosphere for your wedding receptions.
THE ASSIGNED SEATING PLAN
This is the most complicated to organise however it does give you full control over your wedding reception. The assigned seating plan means each guest has a designated seat. Usually the name of each guest is indicated on a place card. The great thing about this style is that it make it easier for the guests that don't know anyone when the time comes to be seated.
THE GUIDED SEATING PLAN
As the name suggests the idea behind this style is to just guide your guests to specific tables and let each guest choose the seat they desire. This also still give the control to position each guest at a specific table and for you to group family and friends, and possition them the way you would like around the room.
THE FREEDOM SEATING PLAN
As with the other styles of seating plan the bride and groom, and also the bridal party sit at the head table. The remainder of the wedding guest sit at unassigned tables. This can be a little unorganised however this style of table plan can create a great atmosphere and is a lot easier for the bride and groom to organise.

We are continually adding to our collection of wedding table plans. These two have been design based on two of our latest wedding invitations. If you have an idea you wish to see as a seating plan send us an email, we are always happy to here your ideas and feedback.
It's your wedding and juggling the likes and dislikes of family and friends is never easy. Some tough choices may have to be make - however they are your family and your friends, they will understand and they will make every effort to get along. Remember aswell that the seating plan never finishes the evening the way it starts. your guests will mingle, dance, and move around during the evening. Creating you seating plan the way you think best, then leave it at that. There will be plenty of other things to occupy your time.
