What Is a Seating Chart template?

A seating chart is a tool that helps visualize the seating arrangements or where guests will sit during a certain event.

How to Create a Seating Chart?

  • Create a list of RSVPs or the guests who you have invited to your event. Once you have a number, decide how many guests you will assign to one table.
  • Decide the different groups of guests you will be assigning to the tables. Make sure the groups can get along, and not strangers or rivals.
  • You can quickly assign guests to tables and visualize it with an editable seating chart template from Creately.
  • Invite your event planner, partner or team members, etc. to share their input in creating the seating chart via Creately real-time collaboration.
  • Group the tables by color-coding them or assigning them a number or letter. This will help you provide order.
  • Consider the venue’s floor plan when you are placing tables. For example, at a wedding reception, you may want to keep the parents closer to the head table.
