For many couples-to-be, creating their wedding seating chart can be one of the most stressful parts of planning a wedding. Plus, since these seating charts can only be finalized after the RSVPs have come in, there’s an added aspect of being pressed for time. So, how can you make a gorgeous seating chart when you’re running out of time, have no idea how to start designing one, and you’ve got a million other things to do?
Don’t worry, we’re here to make creating your very own wedding seating chart easier. Pre-made, professionally-designed templates means you have a great starting point. From there, Canva’s intuitive interface allows you to conveniently drag and drop different elements of your design where you need them to go.
