Creating a Functional Wedding Reception Floor Plan

Weeding-Reception-Floor-Plan

“We only had 50 guests,” explains Nicole, a Toronto HR manager for a large firm downtown who decided to buck the trend and have the most intimate of weddings. “I had thrown parties bigger than that at my place, back when Frank and I were dating. But we decided to keep the reception super small, and I asked Frank what we should do for the seating. He just shrugged,” she recalls. “Most of the guests had known each other for a long, long time, and it didn’t make sense to force them into pre-arranged seating. We did round tables of 8, and let the guests work it out. Everyone was happy and socialized constantly throughout the entire reception!”

While the un-traditional seating plan format worked well for Nicole and Frank – as it might for any couple throwing a very small reception – for brides and grooms that have larger families, and/or plan to invite a diverse guest list of friends and colleagues who have never met, it probably wouldn’t work so well. The last thing you want at your wedding is people wandering around aimlessly, not committing to a particular seat and not knowing where they fit in (unless you’re doing an hors d’oeuvres-only party with very limited seating, in which case, that is kind of the point). And if you don’t put any thought into who will be seated with whom, or how the room will be arranged, you risk a Seinfeld-like ‘when two worlds collide’ scenario where people who should not be mixing, are seated together or bumping into one another as they try to get their food and drinks.

Wedding reception floor plan – do’s and don’ts

When you’re planning the seating and the floor plan for your wedding reception, it’s important to take into account the many different elements of your reception:

  • Ballroom/reception hall size
  • Table size (Round? Square? How many does each table accommodate?)
  • Cake table
  • Head table
  • DJ
  • Dance floor
  • Buffeta
  • Bar(s)

Wedding Reception Floor Plan..

Now for some do’s and don’ts of planning your floor plan.

Do:

-Leave at least 2 feet around each table so guests can easily slide their chairs in and out.

-Make sure every guest is close to something important. For example, a guest should have easy access to the buffet OR be close to the head table OR have an excellent view of the band.

-Choose long tables, rather than round, if you’re having a small, intimate reception like Nicole’s. This style brings everyone closer together rather than having a very empty-looking room with scattered clusters of people.

-Have a kids’ table if your child guests are 5 and up; they will feel delightfully grown-up eating together and their table can also double as a craft table to keep them occupied during and after the various courses.

-Seat lone guests with other singles, not just couples.

Don’t:

-Try to cram too many people into a table. If a table seats a maximum of 10 people, take that very seriously – and try to put just 8 people there, if you can.

-Put the cake table right in front of the head table, or your guests won’t be able to see the happy couple making toasts or kissing!

-Put the cake table too near the dance floor; there is always the risk of it getting accidentally knocked over.

-Place elderly relatives too close to the music.

Still stumped as to how to achieve the perfect layout? GPS Decors can help you plan a functional wedding reception floor plan that includes everyone and optimizes your space and resources, without the hassle of planning it all yourself.

At GPS Decors we know that this doesn’t always happen. The best defense against the inevitable hiccup is being agile and staying focused on that big day by not letting it get lost in the details. Because this is so important, you need to keep your options open, and have help finding ways to replace one piece with another, seamlessly, so no one is the wiser. Except perhaps for you.

Wedding Decorations should be anything but cliché and never generic. Luckily this season’s trending weddings allow for a playful interchange so you can mix-and-match to suit your taste in a way that gives each detail a bit of it’s own spotlight, while leaving the overall feeling of the space and the event itself with a much needed continuity.

This week we’d like to show you how multiple trends can be used to support one another and increase the feeling of a singular and very special day.

The Great Gatsby-inspired wedding is a wonderful way to show your guests your love of all things vintage and the classic atmosphere that they give any space. As one of this years most popular wedding themes it ties-in nicely with two of the dominate trends this season:

Deco-Chic wedding decorations can be incorporated throughout the event, from attire to décor the old-school glamour of the 1920’s will lend itself readily to the the wedding or the reception. For the fashion-conscious bride there a myriad options and styles to borrow from and blend. From Coco Chanel’s daring emancipation of women’s fashion broadening the options for period dress, to the Roaring 20s hairstyles including the bob cut, the Eton and Marcel wave; moreover, unique hats, headbands and flapper dresses with sparkling fringes and risque lines can give a sense of relevant high-fashion while ultimately making everyone feel and look their most beautiful. Men’s fashions for this period are not only still en vogue but can be seen everyday from the office to the red-carpet. Single-breast two and three button jackets in solid or pin-stripes with double-breasted vests of varied colors and fabrics give the groom a chance to color-coordinate with his bride while remaining solidly formal and of course, not stealing the spotlight. Paired with a narrow, cuffed trouser, it gives slim tailored but masculine lines to any groomsmen and the option of satin accents down the leg to match satin lapels can make any simple color-scheme shine just that much more.

THE GREAT GATSBY

Vintage Furniture is not only lovely for guest photos and lounge areas but can be set up before the ceremony to give wedding-party a place to relax and then be re-appropriated for the reception area for everyone to enjoy. The inclusion of not only basic decoration but completely furnished spaces give guests a chance to congregate in a more natural setting where groups of twos and threes can sit close together during and after the festivities without the confines of the more traditional reception tables. This extra touch will show just how much thought and time you put into not only your own experience, but that of those you invite to the most important day of your life. The lighting can also add still more class to any reception or ceremony by adapting lamps with vintage shades, oil-burning glass bulbed or torchiere-type floor lamps with beautiful colored and frosted antique glass and ceramic shades, all which cast light that flows out warmly, giving light and shadow-play throughout the space.

4 Expert Plans for a Low Budget Wedding

4 Expert Plans for a Low Budget Wedding

You want your wedding to be exotic and the one to remember. But you have a tight budget. Are you planning to compromise with your dream? No, that is not something you should do. It’s the most special day of your life, and you must make the best of it. Your wedding must be as extravagant as you have planned. Pen down all you have thought of on a wedding budget planner.

Here are 4 Expert Plans for a Low Budget Wedding:

Hire a wedding decorator: If you have a low budget, hiring a wedding decorator may seem like an extra cost. This is where most couple end up doing a mistake. A wedding decorator has multiple contacts and can fetch you the most competitive rate from the market, without compromising with your choice. Further a wedding decorator is also able to help you with budget wedding ideas. He can guide you thoroughly with ideas to suit not just your style but also your budget.

Don’t go for popular choices: Anything which is popular and most sought after will be expensive. If you are planning your wedding on a budget, you will have to do away with the kind of wedding that most people do. Instead of choosing a venue in some exotic location, try to spot a place closer to your home. This will save a lot of traveling cost for you. If you have a very dear friend, who would want to give the lawn of his/her house for a one day rent, try to book that space. Seek help of your wedding decorator for more affordable alternatives.

Leave out the expenses which you can avoid: Do not over do. Instead of fresh flowers you can go for artificial floral decoration. Instead of a tall 4 or more tier cake, go for smaller ones (you can go for 2 to 3 mini cakes). Instead of live band play your favorite music on a sound system. Instead of candles, go for artificial lights and so on. I bet you would end up saving a lot of cash.

Make it big with small wedding ideas: Call a wedding decorator for advice. With a little professional guidance you can really make your small wedding a big hit. It is not necessary to call everyone you know, even those you have only met once or twice in life. Your invitee list should constitute of names that are really closer to you. Your wedding menu need not be lavish. You know what your near and dear ones love to gorge into, so make it a part of your wedding menu. With a small variety of food on the table, your guests will remember your wedding dinner.

Wedding on a budget is only possible if you have proper planning. By booking a venue, wedding decorator, caterer, and so on months before the ceremony, you will be able to save a lot of money.
