However we do agree that sometimes less is more, and love the simplicity of a printed table plan too. If you are having a lot of elaborate details this may be the best choice.
At lulabee we offer a vast array of hired table plans, which are all personalised and adapted to fit in with your wedding day. A good tip, whether you are making the table plan yourself, or getting someone (like Lulabee!) to help is to try and bring elements of your wedding into the design. If you are getting married in a rural setting, in a barn or having a rustic themed wedding then a wood based table plan could be the one for you! If you are getting married in a stately home or having a more traditional affair, then something fitting like a framed table plan would compliment its surroundings. One of our most popular table plans (that Laura actually used at her own wedding) is a simple free standing wooden board. The stationery prints can really help bring texture and colour to the design, and a plain board like this lets the stationery (and maybe a foliage garland) do the talking.
