10 Unique Seating Chart Ideas

Seating charts and displays are often ignored by couples but as the first thing that guests see when they arrive at your reception, why not put together an eye-catching display that will no doubt get your guests excited for what’s to come later that night? I’ve put together some of my favourite seating chart ideas that will hopefully inspire you to get creative and create something of your own! Whether you display your seating cards in the form of an escort card display or pin them up as a chart, I think they’ll look pretty dandy!

(1) Chalkboard Seating Chart

I adore the chalkboard seating charts by Fox and Fallow! Stay tuned as next week Fox and Fallow will be on the blog teaching you how to make your own chalkboards!

(2) Mirror Seating Chart

I LOVE seating charts that are beautifully scribed on gorgeous vintage mirrors. It just oozes elegance, don’t you think? If you don’t have a big enough mirror to fit all your guests, you can mix and match an assortment of vintage mirrors of different sizes.

(3) Ribbon Seating Display

Loop or pin your seating cards to a ribbon backdrop for something a little whimsical and colourful! For more ribbon wedding ideas, check out my post here.

(4) Illustrated Seating Chart

I love seating charts that are beautifully designed and illustrated. Have your stationer create a seating chart that matches your invitations or if you’re quite the designer yourself, design and print your own!

(5) Superhero Seating Chart

Who doesn’t love a unique and fun seating chart? This superhero inspired seating chart was just too cool not to share! Wouldn’t you just love to sit on the “KAPOW” table?

(6) Travel Inspired Seating Chart

I’m sure there are a lot of travel bugs out there so why not incorporate your love for travel into the design of your seating chart? Think maps, airmail patterns, stamps – you can even go down the vintage or modern route too!

(7) Ombre Seating Chart Display

Seating charts and displays don’t have to be super complicated. You can spruce up a simple seating display using colours like this ombre one! Isn’t it pretty for the eyes?

(8) Fabric Seating Chart

I love the simplicity of this seating chart using fabrics as the backdrop to display the guest seating. It’s so visually pretty and also such a simple idea. You can mix and match fabrics to match the look and feel of your wedding and also the colour palette. It’s also a nice and cost friendly option, don’t you think?

(9) Framed Display Seating Chart

If you’re having a vintage themed wedding, why not use a mixture of vintage frames for your seating chart? It’s simple and looks absolutely lovely!

(10) Polaroid Seating Chart

I am loving this seating chart comprised of polaroids of the guests. That said, this wouldn’t work that well for large weddings as it might just get a tad confusing but for smaller weddings, this could be a fun seating chart to put together.
