Seating plans don’t just tell guests where to sit. They also mark the significance and formality of your big event. Most of the seating plans we print are for wedding receptions, but they are also used for formal dinners at school reunions, sports reunions and corporate events.

Our canvas seating plans are printed and shipped from a specialist printer in the North Island, and the rest of the seating plans are printed in-house and shipped directly from Mosgiel, 20 minutes south of Dunedin, NZ.

Wedding Seating Plans: Size Options

comparison of poster sizes

Seating plans can be produced from A6 (105x148mm) all the way to A0 (841x1189mm). The most popular size is A1 (594x841mm).

We’ve also included tips for working out what size seating plan you will need.

Wedding Seating Plans: Large Format Printing Types

Any size selected that is A2 or larger is considered ‘large format’ and is printed with specialised machinery and processes.

You can select from a range of different table plan printing options to suit different budgets and display styles (i.e. whether you want to display your plan on an easel or something smaller that you can frame). Check out our advice on figuring out what type of seating chart to choose.

Smaller Format Seating Plan Card Choices

All of the printed seating plans at A3 size and smaller come printed on your choice of cardstock with a weight of 300gsm.

If you have purchased wedding stationery through Be My Guest, you should pick the same card to match the rest of your stationery pieces. Order the wedding invitation sample pack for physical swatches of the card options on offer:

Single Card Seating Plans

Perfect for smaller weddings, as these only go up to A3 size. There’s a variety of card types available. Prop on a small easel or frame.

Multiple Card Seating Plans (Individual tables on each card)

These smaller card sets are popular to clip to string or bespoke seating displays.

You simply select the size that suits the frame you have in mind. A6 and Long rectangle are the most popular choices.

Seating Plan Turnaround

The turnaround for seating plans depends on the printing method as each type has different production times. Check out our wedding stationery timeline for when you should order your seating plan and other stationery items.

Canvas Seating Plans take the longest to produce – we recommend allowing three weeks for printing and shipping of these. Large Format Boards, Poster Paper and Card Seating Plans take around two weeks for printing and shipping.

If you need your seating plan urgently, you can submit it as a rush order.

Coordinating Wedding Stationery

As lovers of stationery, we love knowing everything is matching!

When you order a large-format seating plan, you can add a matching sign in the same print style at a discounted rate, as we can package your signage together and save some postage! You can upload a sign in any style for us to print, whether it’s a welcome sign, menu or order of events poster.

We are also able to print Invitations, Guestbooks and Day-of Stationery.

  1. David

    Amanda did a great job of creating the Signage and Seating Plan to meet our design, they looked amazing!!

  2. Christina Timmer

    I got Amanda to make my 1year anniversary present for my husband. On A2 she designed a print with our wedding vows at the top and bottom, names in the middle with wedding photo and heart in the background.
    We love it thanks soo much. Amanda has quick responses/delivery, friendly and very approachable for the minor changes I requested.
    Highly recommended.

  3. Rebecca Gilchrist

    I asked Amanda to make a poster of names & places that meant something to my family. It was a custom request but Amanda understood exactly what I wanted and fuffilled the brief perfectly. She was super friendly, professional and delivered an outstanding product, we love it.
