When it comes to bringing personality and style to your wedding reception, there are some really great ways to add maximum impact in certain areas, like your seating plan! This is usually placed in an open space that catches plenty of attention and so it’s the ideal time to make a statement. It also provides your guests with their first glimpse into your reception, so you can use it as an opportunity to showcase your style but also have a bit of fun at the same time. Guests always stop and mingle at this point, whilst finding their names and then making their way to their table, so you can make this journey exciting for them with a wonderful eye- catching display!
A lovely idea for your Tamborine Mountain inspired wedding, is to bring in elements of nature, by mixing a charming combination of foliage and hanging ribbon like shown below – then you can simply peg on your table arrangement cards. Visually striking and grounded in place, we love this!
Another idea, if your wedding is a little more classic/modern, would be to create a metal frame and hang long strips of floaty fabric knotted to the top and then weaved through your table layout cards – notice the torn edges on the paper & the calligraphy – it’s always all in the details. Very elegant indeed!
Another nod to nature and perfect for your wedding here on the hilltop is a display that incorporates a tree with specially selected branches to create a whimsical installation with your table seating cards dangling from different heights and added florals below for impact.
We adore this concept of a dried wildflower posies with names/table number tags tied on with string – such a beautiful way of celebrating the beautiful landscape where you’ve chosen to marry, but also a sweet way to gift your guests a little bunch of ‘pretty’ too, that they can take home with them as a keepsake!
Moving onto an idea that’s a little more rustic but oh so earthy and real – this super simple idea is a charmer! Collect up branches from the roadside to create your own wooden frame and then string up your lines to peg on your table place cards.
A little more eclectic, with lots of personality – maybe you’re both mad gardeners, creatives or nature lovers – this sweet idea for incorporating rustic palettes and tinned pots of lavender is definitely a striking one.
Straight to the heart – how cute is this dart board inspired table seating plan!? We adore this. Draped in foliage, the arrows each have your guests name and table number printed on them before being artfully inserted into the dart board. Fabulous!
Create a handmade yet super elegant display with a double scroll effect hanging from the outside of your reception space – simple ideas are always so striking.
Give your guests a gift as they find their seat! Maybe you’re both travel lovers who are really feeling the fact that you can’t travel much right now – whatever it might be, we love this idea of incorporating a little giggle about ‘travelling to your seat’ with personalised luggage tags for your guests. This charming display with oodles of florals and candles will have everyone smiling!
This display below is another gorgeous option for a modern wedding – simple metal hoops with table numbers and foliage + little guest name tags attached around each ring, all strung up creatively on a frame, makes for a lovely statement.
If you both met overseas and then travelled the world together, a world map table seating plan would be a lovely way to inject a big dose of personality.
Incorporate your personal travel story with little tags that are tied to the map showing where you ventured together and where it’s led you to now. So cute!
If ‘boho’ is your vibe – these next few ideas will give you loads of dreamy inspiration and are perfectly simple displays to add big impact with DIY too.
