Seating charts made simple

I've attended a slew of weddings this year and noticed a trend: poster-sized seating charts. It's such a simple way to clue guests in to what table they're seated at, with very minimal set-up required. I recently came across some beautiful chart designs by Tifany Wunschl, of Gourmet Invitations, a custom invitation design studio near Detroit. For one couple's lakeside wedding in New Hampshire, Tifany designed a seating chart to resemble an antique map of the lake, complete with a compass in the corner. Guests' names are listed in alphabetical order, with their assigned table listed in an adjacent column. You can see more seating charts by Gourmet Invitations on their blog. —Heather Lee, Assistant Editor, Brides Local Magazines
