Every time a new year starts, I begin thinking about spring and weddings. I usually stick to doing wedding flowers, but I love to get involved in other DIY-aspects of weddings.

This wedding seating chart is made in four easy steps, so even if you’re not a DIY person, you can still tackle this project. I used mirrored frames, champagne-colored satin ribbon, and gold herringbone paper because my style is neutral and slightly glam, but there are a lot of fun ways to customize this seating chart to fit your theme and color palette.

You Will Need:
Large frames
Ribbon
Double-stick tape
Heavy-duty packing tape
2″ x 2″ labels
Patterned paper
Scissors
Pen

Note: You will also need a finalized seating chart for all of your guests.

Step one: Remove glass, matting and the backing of the frame.

Step two: Cut your ribbon to fit the width of the frame’s interior, adding a little extra at each end. Use strong packing tape to fix the ribbon to both sides of the frame.

Step Three: Create custom cards by sticking 2″ x 2″ labels to some patterned paper. Cut around the label equally on all sides to make a patterned border. Add your guests’ names  and table number with a pen.

Step Four: Arrange the seating cards in alphabetical order and stick them to the ribbon using double-stick tape.

    So classy and elegant! And the best part is having beautiful frames to use after the wedding. Great idea.
