Wedding Seating Plans

Seating plans don’t just tell guests where to sit. They also mark the significance and formality of your day.

Tie your wedding day stationery together with a matching seating plan or seating chart for your reception.

Wedding Signage on Canvas, Board or Paper

Signs are an important part of your event – ensuring guests find their way, supplying information, setting the tone and adding to the decor. You can select from a range of different printing options to suit different budgets and display styles (i.e. whether you want to display your sign on an easel or something smaller that you can frame)


The best seating plan size is the size that will work with your space

We adjust and tweak the tables to hold as many or as little guests as possible (and even accommodate guests with really long names).

The layout of the design can be changed to suit long trestles or lots of smaller tables.

Our typical size recommendations for our large format seating plans:

  • – A1 signs work perfectly if using a floor standing easel (this is the most popular size requested)
  • – A2 size is perfect when your seating plan is going onto a tabletop easel (this is the second most popular size requested)
  • – A0 is fine for big spaces but can be too big if you have a tight space.
  • – A3 suits small guest lists only. Otherwise the font gets too small to be legible by guests arriving and crowding around the plan

PRINTING options to suit YOU

There are a number of options available for printing your seating chart & signage

canvas seating plans

The most popular printing option is a stretched canvas seating plan.  

The printed canvas is stretched over a pine frame, making them suitable to place on an easel or hang on the wall. In the image below you can see a close up of the paper and mounting.

This type of seating plan takes the longest to be printed – allow up to three weeks for design, printing and shipping.

large format prints

You can also elect to have your seating plan mounted to foamboard so it can be placed on an easel, or as a poster print delivered rolled into a cardboard tube (the poster prints need to be framed as they are not stiff enough to sit on their own)

If you’ve got access to a printer, or you want to save on shipping costs and time, the electronic option is a great way to go. 

You can take your file to a local print shop or print at work. This is the option we recommend for people that are wanting a seating plan last minute – as none of us have to worry about the couriers being on time!

As well as the large format seating plans, Be My Guest can also design and print seating plans with the tables separated out onto smaller pieces of card.


Seating Plans to Suit

Whatever the event, seating plans elevate your event to something special. Here’s a few of the different options in our range.

What’s included with Be My Guest Seating Plans and Event Signs?

This includes tweaking the design to fit the number of tables you’re having and including guest names.

Ordering a seating plan? You can add on a matching sign at a discounted rate! Select this option when ordering your seating plan and let us know what sort of sign you’d like when you submit your wording.

As seating plans are a time sensitive item, it’s important to allow as much time as possible. For card and photo paper prints, allow two weeks for design, printing and delivery. For canvas and board seating plans, allow up to three weeks, as the canvas assembly process takes a little longer.

Allowing plenty of time ensures you receive your seating plan and other stationery pieces well before your set-up day (and you can relax and know you’ve got everything you need for your wedding day).

We are able to offer an urgent turnaround option for an additional charge.

Get a draft to double check before it goes to print – so you can see how everything looks, and request any tweaks.

Printing options to suit your style or budget – supplied mounted onto a board or canvas (ready to place on an easel or hang on the wall); onto photo paper, which is suitable for framing (frame not supplied); or for smaller sizes, printed onto standard card to match invitations.

All printing is professionally printed on a high quality commercial digital press – no home printers used
