Seating Schmeating!

Soooo, do you do this?


 

 

 

 
Or this?

 

 

 
Why? What's the difference? Does it matter?

 
First you have to ask yourself a series of questions, and the answers will help you determine which to do, if at all.

  • Are you serving a plated meal with various selections for your guests to choose from?
    • If so, you might steer clear of the seating chart, because you'll need to distinqish their selections some how to the servers or catering staff.
  • Do you have limited seating, or the exact number of tables you'll need for your guests?
    • If so, you'll need to consider some kind of table chart or seating cards, because you're guests will usually leave a seat or two open at their tables and that can't happen if you are limited.
  •  Are you only reserving a few tables for your guests?
    • For instance, it's open seating, but you want to make sure your parents and grandparents sit closest to you - then you'll need to have a few reserved signs at those tables in advance.
These are by all means NOT all of the reasons, but it should give you some help while you are determing where and how you'll seat your guests.
