Wedding Recap: Seating Chart and a Giveaway!

Instead of making individual seating cards, I had a seating chart made by Dear Emma on Etsy. She was so quick to always return all my emails and accommodated my many last minute changes. I want to also note that I sent her my seating chart list on Wednesday the week of our wedding and had this printed up and ready to go by Friday!

I had initially envisioned a very different seating chart: one with bright colors and swirls of green, black, and white. However, when I saw this charted listed on her Etsy site, I felt that besides it being very clean and easy to read, it fit into the whole "Castle" feel of our venue really well, and I quickly decided that this was the chart I wanted for the wedding day.

Dear Emma was so great to work with. She sent me a JPEG of this file on Thursday afternoon, I then put that on a USB and took it to Staples to have printed into a 24X36 poster. I bought a  24X36 black frame from Michaels, framed the poster and dropped it off at our venue. Definitely an easy, stress-free process (other than the fact that I was doing it 2 days before the wedding!)

As far as I know, everyone found their seat just fine with no problems and everyone could easily see this as they entered the reception.
Definitely check out Dear Emma for tons of stationary and printing options for your wedding! Now for the Giveaway! Carrying on the crown theme, I have one set of 4 "Crown Cards" to give away to one lucky reader!

As an avid follower of this blog (entry #1) I demand a Mike and Kerry wedding wrap up. After that, I'll probably stop reading. LOLOL.

Entry #2: I like her vintage table numbers/wine bottle labels.

Honestly, this feature was probably my very favorite thing about your wedding - I'm not even kidding. It was so easy to find my table and as a guest, I really appreciated it. Good work!
