Table Planning

My first foray into creating the table plan for the Wedding today! To say it was ‘tricky’ would be an understatement – I hadn’t realise how complex the task would be!

Seating friends together, keeping certain  people apart and making it all fit into the space certainly stimulated the grey-matter. Fortunately, I cheated (slightly) by using a piece of software that takes a lot of the strain out of the task! it’s called Perfect Table Plan and it does exactly what it says on the tin – and some!

- Simply enter the names of all your guests (or import it from something like Excel)
- Tell the software who’s related to who (so they end up sitting next to each other – or not!)
- Choose the size and type of table – and how many
- Place the tables where you want them
- Drag and drop your guests into their seats – or if you’re feeling lazy, use the auto-assign
button and it’ll use the ‘relationships’ you’ve input, and a few seconds later, you have your
   table plan, with everyone ‘in the right place’
- Now fine-tune it manually if you wish for the perfect result!

Once you are happy with your plan, you have the option of printing table-cards, table plans, guests lists by table and/or name – cool!!!
