Even the smallest detail can effect how your wedding photos would turn out. Seating arrangements may be the lease important thing on your mind amongst the exhaustive to do list you already have. Yet, it is so simple to execute. Here are 6 simple ways you can jazz things up. Allocate this task to a friend before hand or let your planner (if you have one) know how you would like the seats arranged to tick this of the long list of items you’d have to do on your big day. 

#01 Herringbone Arrangement

A diagonal seating arrangement will look better in photos as it creates a visual effect of “closing the gap” in between chairs. Furthermore, the guests seated at the end of each row are brought closer to the stage creating a cozy ambience.

02. Theatre Arrangement

Theatre arrangements are popular as they are forward facing and they maximise seating capacity. They are also easy to execute. Change it up with use of different type of chairs. Other than the cliched Chiavari there are still so many other options; such as the English garden chair, cross-back chair, cane-back chair, ghost chair, and opera chair. However, do bear in mind that they may not be as easy to source.

03. Furniture Rental

Rented chairs that provide an interesting visual effect will look better than the usual banquet chairs. Different designs and heights in a mix-and-match are perfect for a whimsical-themed wedding party like this Wes-Anderson-inspired boho-chic forest wedding in Bandung.

04. Leaving Your Guest Gifts

To dress up the area, you can leave program booklets or wedding favors on the chairs for your guest. It’s also a good idea to leave fans or sunglasses for an outdoor ceremony.

05. Strategic Floral Placements

Of course, if your budget permits, flowers are a great way to fill in the gaps, especially for the first and last row of chairs. Wild floral arrangements are great for decorating individual seats.

06. Reception-Style Setting With An Aisle

Viking tables set up with an aisle in between could work if you have your wedding ceremony right in the reception venue. Floral arrangements, décor elements and candles are ideal for filling in the gaps, and all you’ll need for your ceremony backdrop is an arch at the front of the room. After the wedding ceremony, your signing table can be transformed into the newlyweds’ table. What a way to re-utilise everything!

07. U-shaped Reception

Instead of having your ceremony at the front of the room, why not have it on a dance floor in the center of the space? This way more of your guests will have a front-row seat, and the dance floor can also be used for your first dance later in the celebration.

08. Get Cosy With A Circular Setting
