My Wedding Table Plan DIY ♥

When I was planning our wedding I saw all sorts of lovely ideas for wedding table plans, from writing on mirrors, to luggage tags pinned up in old suitcases - the possibilities seemed endless! After going to a good friend's wedding I found the perfect style of table plan for us. My friend had used a multi-frame to place each table setting in and had set it upon a stand. I liked the simplicity but elegance of the finished effect and decided to pinch her fab idea for our wedding!




It ended up being an inexpensive DIY, as we picked the frame up from The Range for under £10! It had 11 frames which was perfect as we had 10 tables and we used the 11th centre frame as the 'Table Plan' sign. In each frame we placed the names for each table & designed pastel coloured backgrounds and borders for each. For the centre frame I found a vintage frame illustration on a free clip-art site and chose a vintage font to write 'Table Plan' in the centre. We then printed it all out and popped them in each frame - it was that simple!




The frame came with all of the sizes so it was easy to create the print-outs to go inside. The beauty of having a tableplan like this is that you can fill the frame with lots of lovely wedding photos afterwards, and keep it as a memento of your big day! I'd really recommend The Range for frames like these and lots of other inexpensive bits and bobs for weddings. This type of table plan can also be hung on a wall, or set upon an easel (like we did). It looks lovely and elegant, and is budget-friendly and very easy to create!




You can really play around with whatever colours or theme you like in each of the frames. As our wedding had an 'Afternoon Tea' type theme we decided to name each table after blends of tea. We had Assam, Darjeeling, Chamomile, Oolong, White Peony, Earl Grey, Jasmine, Sencha & Ceylon. You could name your tables after anything you like, from your favourite songs or books, to places you and your partner have visited on holiday!


What's your favourite kind of table plan?
