Whether you get a designer or wedding planner to create it for you, or you want to DIY your own, here's some seating plan inspiration that we love...

Your stationery is one of the most easily customisable parts of your wedding, and as the biggest part of your stationery, your table plan is an opportunity to get really creative. Whether you get a designer or wedding planner to create it for you, or you want to DIY your own, here's some seating plan inspiration that we love...

Ladder seating plan

The humble ladder makes for a great seating plan that you can easily customise to fit your theme. You can paint it one of your wedding colours, or decorate it with props that match your wedding venue. Plus, it stands on its own, so you won't need to hire or buy an easel like with many other seating plans.

Mirror seating plan

The best thing about using a mirror for a seating plan is that it's so easy to DIY, but looks luxurious and makes a great impact. All you need to do is get your hands on a big enough mirror in a frame of your choice (we love opulent gold frames for a vintage-inspired day), and then write your guests' names on it with a glass marker.

Macaron seating plan

This genius seating plan doubles up as an edible favour for your guests! Buy or make macarons colour coded with your table numbers (if you have eight tables, you'll need eight different flavours), and then pop your guests' names into them on miniature flags. This also works brilliantly with cupcakes.

Photo frames seating plan

Like the mirror seating plan above, a photo frame seating plan looks impressive but can be done on the cheap! You can easily pick up mix and match photo frames at charity shops or jumble sales, and then paint them to match each other (or your theme) before writing each table plan on them. If you don't have a large board to hang them from, buy frames that stand on their own and arrange them on a table.

Map seating plan

This is a lovely idea for couples who enjoy travelling together. The possibilities are endless; you could choose your table names based on places you've visited together, or places you want to go to in the future. You can also buy replica antique maps of cities such as Paris or Rome, which look great as table plans – for a romantic bonus, find a map of the place your other half proposed in, or where you'll be going on your honeymoon.

Blackboard seating plan

Depending on your budget, you can either use a real blackboard for this, or get a designer to create a printed plan for you that looks like a blackboard. To make it look more realistic, you can always go over the calligraphy in real chalk pen. Either way, you'll have a gorgeous, graphic table plan that looks stylish and modern.
