Wedding Seating Chart: Tuxedo Style

creative wedding seating chart

Mom and The Explorer made my wedding seating chart with paper cutouts and poster board. I wanted a single board instead of an army of escort cards. Their tuxedo design came out beautifully. Each table was printed on the surrounding white papers with the table name, number, and guests.

ivory ribbon tied in a bow,

craft “gems” and glue,
