Creating The Best Possible Reception Floor Plan


Where Will You Sit?

As the happy couple, you have the privilege of being the center of attention at your reception -- literally. You may not spend a lot of time sitting down, but when you do, your friends, family, and loved ones will want to see your first moments as a couple unfold.

When you aren’t seated, you’ll probably be dancing or mingling, so a central location is beneficial for you, too. You can be close to the dance floor and have easy access to wander to your guest’s tables.

Finally, when thinking about your placement at the reception, consider if you want a couple’s table or a king’s table. A couple’s table is intimate and no one will feel left out if they aren’t seated with you, but a king’s table makes sure you’re close to your wedding party during the reception.
