Where Will Our Guests Sit?

This weekend I caught wedding-crafting fever. With the help of my awesome MOH, I finished the table numbers and the seating chart in record time.

I wanted to utilize our engagement pictures as our table numbers but had no idea on how to edit them in. Lil Boa worked some Photoshop magic to attach the table numbers to each of the pictures and created JPEG images of the seating lists. We printed the table numbers, the I Spy sheet, and the seating lists as photos at Walgreens.

The table number workstation

I used a simple plastic frame to display the the number and the I Spy.

Final product

For the seating chart, I was originally inspired by this beauty.

We had no luck finding a frame that was big enough to hold all our seating lists, but a little brainstorming found us a great alternative. We will be taping the ribbon, floor to ceiling, to one of glass walls that sits right at the top of the venue’s stairs. The seating lists were backed by leftover Violette card stock from the invitations and hot glued to the ribbons.

What DIY projects did you finish at the last minute?

    It’s great you were able to find a space for the seating chart. I’m thinking of doing ours in a frame too. The frames for your table numbers are great – they really make the cute photos the focus! x

    I LOVE your inspiration photo for the seating chart. Those frames are hard to find! I saw one at a thrift store the other day for $175. Expensive! Excited to see pictures of how the ribbons look taped up, during your recaps!

    I love the seat assignments. Much less effort than what I’m currently working on.
