8 Tips That’ll Make Creating Your Seating Chart a Lot Less Stressful



Oh, the dreaded seating chart: It’s a Big Day necessity, for sure—but it also ranks pretty high on the list of the most frustrating and stressful wedding tasks you’ll have to tackle. (Not to mention, one of the most rife territories for squabbles.) This is the case for a handful of reasons, the main one being that it’s time consuming and takes a good bit of focus and strategy to piece it all together nicely—regardless of whether or not you have friends and family members who need to be seated as far away from each other as possible.

The good news: There are ways to knock the whole thing out with as little angst as possible, and these guidelines are a great place to start. The entire process is broken down for you here, including which apps are the most helpful and how to use colored post-its to your advantage. It all comes down to staying as organized as possible, which we know can be a tad difficult with all of the other wedding planning (and family and money and life) stuff going on.

So before you dive headfirst into this massive project, take a look at all of the seating chart tips here.
