Siiigh, I can’t believe the wedding is over. It was fun while it lasted. =)
To direct our wedding guests to their correct table, we used a seating chart board.
- Cut a piece of wood for the board. Depending on how many guests you have, the board can be as large or as small as you’d like. I used a precut 2′ x 2′ piece (Home Depot), but the store is more than happy to cut the wood to any size.
- Cut fabric, allowing at least a 2-inch allowance around all sides.
- Wrap fabric around the board.
- Using a staple gun, secure fabric to the back side of the board.
- Design and print guest names and their corresponding table numbers. For our chart, guests were grouped together alphabetically by their last name.
- Cut out each section.
- Decide on your layout and attach each section to the board with double-sided tape. Make sure to leave a space at the top for your heading.
- Pieces of string tied around the board served as guidelines and removed later.
- A small piece of paper is used to ensure each section is equally spaced apart.
- A diagram of the room makes it a little easier for guests to find their table.
- For the heading, cut out individual letters to spell out the words.
- Punch holes at the top of each letter.
- Attach the letters together by weaving string through the holes.
- Secure heading to board with push pins.
The seating chart sat on an easel and worked perfectly.
