    The Easy Seating app has been pretty simple! It alphabetizes by first name, so that's a little annoying, but no big deal.

    I used my own room layout and numbered each table! Underneath the layout I made columns numbered to match each table and penciled in my seating chart based on brides family, grooms family. We have a traditional head table to include my FH and I and to my left is my sister (MOH), her significant other, my brother(GM), his significant other, My niece-his daughter (Jr bridesmaid) next to my FH is our bestman (his brother), his wife, then our daughter(BM) her significant other and our 2 grandkids who are the flower girl and ring bearer! We are older couple I'm 39 he is 40! Table one started my family( mom, dad, gmom, a few very close friends) and table two started his( mom, gparents, siblings not in wedding. I went left to right. Table 3 is behind table 1 so I seated my aunts, uncles, and close cousins! Table 4 behind table 2 is his aunts, uncles, and cousins, table 5 behind table 3 is more distant cousins and same on his side for table 6. Tables 7,8,9,10 are friends! Each table seats 10-12! We have 110 total.. I hope this helps

    I just used several large pieces of paper and a pencil with a good eraser (low tech, I know). My venue provided a map of how their tables would be arranged. I assigned 185 people to 21 tables and it took maybe 60 minutes or so.

    I’m planning on using sticky notes for people and a big poster for the tables!

    I used paper plates and sticky notes. So easy to see the room layout on my living room floor and move people around as needed.

    I prefer to do almost everything electronically, but even I will just do this with sticky notes and paper. It seems even more complicated on a phone than it needs to be, unless it will order escort cards and your chart for you.

    I tried those but didn't like it, but I also had difficulty because my venue wasn't one that they already had so I just did it old school with note cards lol, worked out awesome

    Hi Jenna! Have you tried using our Seating Chart Tool? I would love to know how this part of your planning is coming along! Fill me in!

    I loved it! Although I wished it would work with the app also but it was very easy to use, I was able to print it when I was done and it included my guest that were already in so I didn't have to type every single person
