Seating Arrangement is one of the most important things about your wedding.

Your guests want to know where they are seated and you should do your best to make them happy. Wedding Assistant seating arrangement makes it easy! Simply drag and drop guests to the table or between tables if necessary. You can also define a children’s table and drag only kids to it.

Options for tables include order of guests, maximum number of guests, groups and much more.

Seating Arrangements How To

The process is easy. Once the event has Seating required, the button that starts the Seating scheme will be available to click.When you create your Guest List, we recommend using Groups. Naturally, you would like people who know each other to sit at the same table at your Wedding.

Define your tables

You can add tables one at a time, or multiple tables to the scheme. Set the maximum number of guests in a table (as defined by your venue), optionally select a group and give the table a caption (e.i. ?Sarah?s friends from College?), define as Adults or Children. Since Wedding Assistant is an open, flexible program, you can always add adults to a children?s table and vice versa. Events that have RSVP enabled will show only guests that have confirmed their attendence on the Seating Arrangement guest list.

Filter the guest list

You can be on top of your game when it comes to seating arrangement, the following filters can help you make sure everything is in order:

1. Show guests not seated

2. Guests by group

3. Children only

Once a table is full and you are happy with the settings, you can lock it and prevent changes to it unless it is unlocked. Every session of seating arrangement can be saved or discarded.
