Many couples as us for fun ideas to display their seating arrangements. Seating arrangements are a great way to display where guests are sitting, and can really make a statement. While poster boards are the most common way to display a seating chart, there are so many creative and fun ways to make a seating chart. Doing something a little different can also be a great way to add your own personal flair to the wedding!
Mirrors are a beautiful to display your seating chart. They can be elegant and traditional, or trendy and modern. Dress them up with florals, or add a fun frame. Either way it makes a great statement piece!
If you are doing a rustic, or woody theme (or just like the look of wood!) – wooden seating charts are the perfect way to bring in that woodsy feel. These can be purchased on websites like Etsy, but they are also easy to make! Buy wood from a supply store, stain it your preferred color, and glue on your paper.
Add a whimsical fee to your decor with a window frame! Add paper to the empty frames, write on them with chalk pends, or paste on your paper to the glass – the possibilities are endless!

Make it small or big, one big sign, or several small ones. No matter what you do, chalkboards always look great!
