What are your seating plan options?

Seating plans don’t just tell guests where to sit. They also mark the significance and formality of your big event. The right seating plan for you will depend on where you're putting it, how long you've got, the look you're going for and your budget.

What are your seating plan options?

If you've been busy reading The Epic NZ Wedding Seating Planning Guide, then you'll know that seating plans don’t just tell guests where to sit. They also mark the significance and formality of your big event.

The right seating plan for you will depend on where you're putting it, how long you've got, the look you're going for and your budget.

Naturally, most of the seating plans we design are for wedding receptions, since couples love to match their wedding stationery to their Be My Guest designed wedding invites, but our seating plans are also used for formal dinners at school reunions, sports reunions and corporate events.

Wedding Seating Plan Printing Options

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):


Canvas Seating Plans 

Your personalised seating plan is printed onto a lightly textured canvas material which is then stretched over a 40mm pine frame.

This gives the canvas seating plans a seamless, sleek and modern look. They can be propped onto an easel or hung on a wall.


Board Seating Plans

Printed onto self adhesive vinyl which is mounted onto 5mm thick foamboard. These are a lightweight option that can be propped on an easel or hung from a sign stand.

Poster Paper Seating Plans

Printed onto 220gsm synthetic poster paper. This option needs to be framed, then you can pop it on a table or easel.

Tip: Pick a frame that you can reuse for your wedding photos!

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 Cards (Individual tables on each card)

These smaller card sets are popular to clip to string or bespoke seating displays. There’s a variety of card types available.

Electronic/Digital PDF File

If you’re in a rush and don’t want to risk the couriers, or perhaps you have access to a large format printer. Whatever the case, we are able to assist with an electronic version of your seating plan with a turnaround of 2-3 working days.

How long do wedding seating plans take?

Refer to our Wedding Stationery Timeline post for details on when you should be placing your order. But for a rough guide:

  • For card and poster prints, allow at least two weeks for design, printing and delivery.
  • For canvas and mounted board seating plans, allow three weeks.

Be My Guest Design also offers an urgent turnaround option for an additional charge. Remember to account for the Christmas/New Year holidays in your calculations and allow for any shipping delays.

Be My Guest Seating Plans include:

  • Custom designed to suit your specific table layout and guest list
  • An electronic draft mockup of your seating plan before it goes to print – so you can see how everything looks and request any changes. Up to two rounds of revisions are included.
  • All Be My Guest Design’s seating plans are NZ designed & made and professionally printed.
