Alternative Table Plan Ideas

Here at Wasing Park, we have seen many different and beautiful ways to display seating plans.

Mirrors and chalkboards have created a twist on the classic framed seating chart, and some couples use photos, personal items or their hobbies and interests to design something individual.

We have an easel for you to display your table plan beautifully; alternately, for those that can stand alone, we have a small round table to put your table plan on. Some couples have even taken advantage of the walls just outside the Castle Barn to lean their table plans against and the hooks to hang their plans from. You are more than welcome to place your table plan in either The Garden Room or the Castle Barn, wherever works best for you!


If you are stuck for inspiration, take a look at a few of these quirky ideas that some couples have used on their big day.
