What are table plans?
Table plans are essentially a seating diagram that helps each guest find their particular table and tells them who else is among the party at their table. They are essential to the organisation and smooth running of any occasion where you have a pre-arranged seating plan. It will normally be displayed at the entrance to the room where you are hosting your event and is often the thing your guests will see.
At wedding banquets, the bridal party and their guests usually sit in pre-arranged groups of relatives and friends, each group being seated at a different table. Sometimes the tables are given names according to a particular theme that is personal to the bride and groom such as their favourite bands or wines. Other couples prefer to simply number their guests tables. Traditionally at weddings there will be a top table which includes the bride and groom, mother and father of the bride, mother and father of the groom, the best man and the chief bridesmaid however, this a personal choice. The table plan is usually displayed at the entrance to the wedding reception.
