YOUR WEDDING SEATING CHART CHALLENGES RESOLVED
How to make a wedding seating chart? Based on your RSVP list and floor plan, assign guests to tables based on family, family, friends, or other groups of guests that you want to sit together. Once you have assigned guests to tables, you can start assigning seats. Personalize Minted's wedding seating chart template to reflect yours. For further guidance, you can read Minted’s helpful guide on creating a seating chart.
How should I organize the chart for an easy read? There are 2 ways to do this:
- By Table Number: List guest names alphabetically by last name under each table assignment.
- Alphabetical by Name: List every wedding guest in alphabetically by last name. Next to each guest’s name you can list their table assignment. This is recommended if you have guests more than 80 people.
What is the size of a wedding seating chart? Minted offers two sizes of weddings eating charts: 16” x 20” and 18” x 24”. Choose based on your space and the number of guests.
Where should I display the seating chart? Consider the entry area to the dining area or the welcome table where gifts and the guestbook are located. High visibility areas are your best bet. Using an easel is a classy and simple solution. You may also consider framing it or hanging it with ribbon.
For wedding planning veterans, it is a well-known fact that organizing a wedding seating chart can be a challenge. It is typically finalized weeks leading up to the wedding as the final RSVPs come in and table assignments are shuffled around to accommodate confirmed guests. There are countless ways to create your seating arrangements, such as grouping guests that have similar friends, live in similar areas, or maintain similar ages. There is also the added pressure of how you decide who sits at table 1 and how immediate family members should be grouped.
We understand that creating your wedding table seating can be overwhelming, no matter how you decide to organize the dining arrangements at your reception. Once your game plan is finalized, Minted is here to help ensure your layout is clearly communicated in a design-forward way so every guest can find their seat with ease.

YOU HAVE OPTIONS: TWO ORGANIZATIONAL FORMATS
There are two traditional ways to alert guests of their seating arrangements. Each of Minted’s wedding seating chart poster designs can feature either organizational option. If you’re looking for the pros and cons of both, review our helpful guide to creating a seating chart.
- By Table Number: Your seating board can opt to be organized by table numbers, listing guest names alphabetically by last name under each table assignment. This allows guests to quickly see all the people sitting at each table and who may be near them.
- Alphabetical by Name: This option simply lists every wedding guest in alphabetical order. Next to each guest’s name you can list their table assignment. It is recommended that you list alphabetically by the last name.
