Present the seating arrangement with table numbers.

If the seating arrangements for the wedding is ready, there are many attractive options to tell your wedding guests where and with whom they sit at a table. How about, for example, with a printed schedule or on a canvas at the entrance to the wedding location? There you can display the table numbers and the names of the wedding guests. Alternatively, you can also place cards with names and table numbers eg attached to a belt with small clips that the wedding guests can remove and take them to their table. To ensure that your wedding guests will find their place in the seating arrangement, the table numbers should be on the individual tables. You can also use cities or country name instead of table numbers. Or you can use symbols or terms that are relevant to your relationship.
