Wedding Table Plan

We will help you arrange a suitable table plan for your wedding reception

Whilst we can offer a wide variety of room layouts in our Ballroom, we would ask that you seek our advice on the best arrangement to suit the numbers in your party for your wedding reception. We are happy to provide you with a bespoke seating plan that will allow your guests to be seated comfortably and take into account any high-chairs, wheelchairs or other requirements you may have.

For numbers up to 110 with a traditional rectangular top table, we can generally use 10 round tables each occupying 10-11 guests. Where guest numbers exceed 110, we will arrange a seating plan that includes some rectangular tables at the entrance to the Ballroom to accommodate your number of guests in comfort.

We encourage all of our couples to involve us in this process to ensure the maximum comfort and most efficient use of the space as is possible. Our Ballroom can offer a wide variety of formats that are both dependent on the number to be seated as well as any other specific requirements that my also need to be accommodated e.g. musicians, displays etc.

Here are some helpful seating plan hints that will ensure all of our arrangements for your wedding day can be followed to the letter.

1. Please ask our wedding co-ordinator for a bespoke seating plan that will allow your full number of guests to be seated comfortably in the ballroom;

2. Care should be taken to include any high chairs, wheelchairs or carrycots in the seating arrangements as they do occupy the same space as a chair on each table;

3. When listing the guests on each table please use a Title as well as their initial and surname e.g. Mrs A. Bride. This will ensure that favours and any other gifts specifically for ladies or gentlemen can be easily allocated with out the complications of Christian names that can be either, e.g. Leslie, Sam etc.

4. Place cards should also be presented this way, put together and boxed for each individual table.

5. In order that your place cards and guests are positioned exactly where you wish on each table we have a proven method to help solve this problem. The person with best view of the bride and groom on each table is then allocated No.1. We then continue around the table in a clockwise direction finishing with No.,10. Please list your guests, and put your place cards in this sequence before bringing them to us.

6. Please remember that your seating plan forms the blueprint for your Wedding Breakfast and all details on it must be 100% accurate. Any special diets such as vegetarians, coeliacs, gluten free etc., should be indicated on the plan together with any special requirements for children's meals, high chairs and wheelchairs.
