If you’re planning a wedding in the near future, consider Mill Creek Ranch Resort, one of the finest wedding venues in Dallas, TX. At Mill Creek Ranch Resort, we not only have one of the most beautiful settings for formal or informal weddings – over 200 acres of East Texas woodlands, a Grand Lodge and pavilion – we also have an experienced staff that will work with you to create the wedding of your dreams. And because our staff members have worked so closely with so many couples, we know that there are many details that can easily overwhelm you when you’re planning your big day. Among the most contentious is guest seating arrangements for your reception.
Deciding who to invite to your wedding is hard enough; but deciding where to seat the people who make the list is even harder. The first thing you should remember is that you won’t be able to make everyone happy so do the best you can. The second thing to remember is to check with your parents and your fiance’s parents to find out about potential problems and who can’t be seated next to who under any circumstances. The third thing you need to remember is to build in some flexibility into your seating arrangements. Leave a couple of tables with open chairs in case you have surprise guests or people who forgot to RSVP.
Before you even sit down to chart out the seating arrangements, decide if you want to let your guests request specific tables or if you want to take complete control. Either way, you and your spouse will be seated at the head table. You can sit alone or with members of your wedding party. Next to the head table is the table of honor, which should be reserved for parents and possibly grandparents of the bride and groom and the wedding officiant. If any of the parents are divorced, they should be seated at separate tables. As for the rest of the tables, married couples should always be seated together while single guests will likely prefer sitting at tables with other singles. Another mistake to avoid is creating a table full of strangers. Always try to seat strangers with people familiar with each other to make conversation easier.
And last, but not least, clearly mark the tables with numbers and then give each guest a table card to let them know at which table they’ll be seated. When you choose Mill Creek Ranch Resort, one of the best wedding venues in Dallas, TX for rustic, Texas weddings, you can be creative with your table cards and table settings. You can place table cards in pine cones or blocks of wood or attach them to twigs. Your place settings can continue your rustic theme with flowers in mason jars, leaves, greenery and candles for soft lighting. Pair your rustic decor with elegant dinnerware, cutlery and crystal for a great balance of styles.
