Don't Sweat the Seating Charts

Figuring out seating arrangements can be a huge pain the butt, and not mention having to deal with every ones suggestions as to who sits where, and don't bother drawing pictures of tables with every ones name on the table, I guarantee by the time you are done you will have scribbled out so many names that your seating chart now looks like a Picasso painting!


I have a tip that can save you time. Here's what you do: purchase mini post-its and write each guests name on an individual post-it, then gather as many paper plates as there are tables for your event. Number the plates as you would the tables at your event and begin sticking each guest (post-it) to their corresponding table. If you need to move someone, just move the post-it, it's that simple. No scribbled mess and they stack nicely out of the way when you are not using them.

This is a great idea! I just went to a wedding last night where there was assigned seating, every place setting had a name card, but you had to search all 12 tables to find your name! What a pain!

Welcome

With this blog I plan to share my knowledge of the event planning world, whether its style trends, etiquette, or cost saving tips, I will cover it all. I also want to open the lines of communication with other professionals, soon-to-be brides or anyone else interested in what I have to say.

If you have a question about an upcoming event, need some advice or recommendations, please feel free to email me and I will respond to your request with a blog entry, unless you would prefer to have your question addressed privately.

I look forward to sharing my thoughts, ideas and suggestions with all of you. I hope you enjoy reading the "Event Planner's Diary".
