Key tips to make sure ev­ery­one has the best time on your spe­cial day

Mackay and Whitsundays Wedding Guide - - Contents -

ONE of the biggest things brides and grooms stress about on the big day is whether guests are hav­ing fun.

A key part of guests’ en­joy­ment is who they are seated with at the reception.

To make sure guests have the great­est time pos­si­ble, try to seat like-minded peo­ple to­gether and put some space between peo­ple who don’t al­ways get along.


:: Sit younger peo­ple closer to the dance floor.

:: Sit peo­ple who have a his­tory of fight­ing on op­po­site sides of the room.

:: Don’t sit the flower girls or ring bear­ers at the main ta­ble un­less their par­ents are sit­ting with them, oth­er­wise you’ll be look­ing af­ter them all night.

:: Get cre­ative with how you dis­play the seating plan. Use photo frames with pic­tures of your guests; use an old win­dow still in its frame and write the list in chalk; use a black­board, or even bunting. The lit­tle flares of cre­ativ­ity add strongly to the at­mos­phere of the event.

:: Sit groups of friends to­gether.

:: Think about whether you want to as­sign just ta­bles, or seats as well.

:: If your par­ents are invit­ing their own guests, let them have a say on where their friends or fam­ily will be seated.
