Table Plan Ideas for a Country Wedding

As well as being informative, your table plan or seating plan should be considered an attractive addition to your room décor. We hope you’ll be inspired by these table plans for your country wedding at Pentney Abbey.

Bring the outside in by using natural products. Wood makes a great base for a table plan and can be adorned with pretty flowers and foliage that suit your style and colour scheme.

For a classic look, choose a white background and beautiful calligraphy. You can add your chosen colours with fresh floral decoration or a coloured ink.

Framing your table plan adds an element of glamour to the occasion, particularly if you choose gold or silver.

Mirrors, glass and acrylic make great table plans with a contemporary edge. Once again, if you want to make more of a statement, consider framing them. Choose a vintage style frame to blend in with the style of Pentney Abbey and its gatehouse.

Alternatively, follow a more rustic theme using a chalkboard, softening the edges with foliage.

If you want to create something completely different, you might pin photographs of your guests on a board or peg names to lines of wire or ribbon.

For country weddings, we also love to see table plans created from wooden ladders and pallets.

Key points for a successful table plan

1. Position your table plan where it can easily be seen, avoiding doorways. As your guests gather around it, you don’t want to block the entrance.
2. List your guests according to which table they are on. That way they can easily see who else they are sitting with along with the name or number of their table.
3. Regardless of any beautiful designs, the most important thing is that your plan is easy to read. Style shouldn’t overtake substance – ideally you will have both!
