10 Reasons to Create an Online Wedding Seating Chart Using Allseated

Wedding couples today are using technology more than ever before to plan their weddings.

The creation of the wedding seating chart is always a prime focus and critical component of the wedding planning process.

There are numerous benefits to using Allseated’s platform to plan your wedding and arrange your wedding table seating chart.

1. Increased organization

It’s nearly impossible to jump right into creating your wedding seating chart template. Wedding planning absolutely requires a process, along with organization, in order to efficiently and effectively create the wedding seating chart for your wedding. Allseated provides a high level of organization through the use of collaborative planning tools which will assist throughout the wedding planning process. With all data updated in real time and everything stored in one place, it’s simple and efficient to collaborate with your entourage and vendors on all important details such as guest list, wedding seating chart, floorplans, timelines, and more.

2. Guest list management

The first step in every planning process should be establishing your guest list.

You can’t move forward in your planning and effectively search for a wedding venue (or get to the point of creating a wedding table seating chart) until you know how many guests you will need to accommodate.

Allseated makes it easy to create, store, and manage your wedding guest list. It’s simple to enter guest names and mailing addresses, which can be stored alphabetically or filtered into categories for even easier organization.

Manage guests lists for all of your wedding-related events including:

  • Bridal shower
  • Bachelorette party
  • Rehearsal dinner
  • Wedding reception
  • Post-wedding brunch

3. Keep track of details

Allseated gives you ample opportunity for organization which assists in efficiently creating your wedding seating layout. Within the guest list, keep track of several details such as:

  • Meal type requests
  • RSVP’s
  • Notes. Maybe you want to list allergy information for specific guests. Or perhaps you are doing favors and need to list sizing or other details.
  • Guest List. The guest list also links directly to seating so when you are ready to arrange your wedding seating chart, the process is efficient and organized.

4. Improve accuracy with floorplans to-scale

Using our to-scale free table planner tools, Allseated removes all of the uncertainty that often surrounds designing floorplans. Our planning features and digital tools make it really easy and efficient to place tables and other furniture directly in the floorplan.

When creating your floorplan, it’s worth noting that all floorplans are in fact designed to-scale.

Every table and item in our extensive object library has also been scaled to its exact listed dimension. We’ve taken all of the guesswork out of wondering whether everything will actually fit in your space on the day of your wedding!

When using Allseated for your wedding seating chart, you can detail the floorplan to include many features including:

  • Select specific tables, chairs, objects, and furniture
  • Customize the spacing between tables
  • Join tables and/or knock off chairs
  • Include spacing for dance floors and entertainment
  • Mark exits for the room
  • List planning notes and details directly on floorplan

At any time during your floorplan design process, switch from 2D viewing to 3D viewing to take a virtual walkthrough of the wedding seating layout you created. The 3D viewing options allow you to choose Bird’s Eye viewing to see your floorplan from an above view. Alternatively, you can also walk through the 3D layout in 1st Person View as if you were literally walking through the floorplan.

6. Collaboration

If you need assistance from friends or family when creating your wedding seating chart, invite them into the event so that you can collaborate on the details in order to get your wedding table seating chart perfect.

Since Allseated’s tools are collaborative, you can invite your vendors into your account for added support too. Perhaps your wedding venue contact has a great idea for the wedding table seating chart or floorplan layout. Work with vendors and allow them to easily show you floorplan layout options that will work well for the event space, leaving you with great ideas for your floorplan and ultimately, your wedding seating chart. You will also want to collaborate with the rest of your vendor team as well on the floorplan, as this will allow vendors to understand set up, list their own details and needs, and keep everyone operating on the same page.

7. Intuitively Easy

Using Allseated to create and manage your wedding seating chart allows you flexibility in layout and arrangement. There’s no need to stress changes as they can be made so easily with all updates made in real-time.

The seating tab within your event provides you with access to your floorplans and guest list. Create your wedding seating chart and seat your guests directly from the guest list at the tables you have positioned in your floorplan.

While in the seating tab, click on the guests tab to the left in order to have instant access to your guest list. It’s simple and efficient to select a guest, then click on a specific table in the floorplan, to easily seat the guest.

When creating your wedding table seating chart, you may wish to seat guests at specific seats at specific tables. Allseated offers you the option to do this by first placing them at a table, clicking that table, and assigning the guest to their specific seat.

8. Save time

The use of digital planning tools for creating wedding seating charts saves wedding couples a considerable amount of time throughout the process. With all data stored in one place and easily accessible, guest list management, floorplan design, wedding seating chart creation, and timeline tasks are efficiently and effectively addressed and handled.

Keep track of details by generating reports for your wedding. A floorplan report can detail your specific layout along with complete listing of inventory, table breakdown and wedding seating information. A guest report can also be generated to include meal type information, table numbers and other notes that may be relevant from the wedding table seating chart for the venue.
