How To Make A Wedding Table Plan: Blackboard Buckets And Wooden Crates

Make your own wedding table plan!

One of our customers had the creative idea of using our blackboard buckets to make her wedding table plan and we love it. It’s so simple and looks fab, especially if you are having a chalkboard or blackboard theme to your wedding. A blackboard theme works well if your wedding venue is a country pub or barn or even a marquee. Perhaps both of you are teachers so blackboards reflect your job?

What you will need:

How To Make The Table Plan:

  1. Write your table numbers on the front of each blackboard bucket in chalk
  2. Put a potted plant inside each blackboard bucket. Our photo shows lavender, herbs also work well
  3. On a table stack your wooden crates to make shelves for your buckets to sit on
  4. Place your blackboard buckets on the wooden crates

How To Make The Mini Bunting:

how to make mini paper bunting

  1. Now you have to show guests which table they are sitting at – make your own mini bunting to string up within each bucket, write a guests name on each bunting flag so they know which table they are sitting at.
  2. Take 2 wooden dowels and tie a piece of string between them approx 15cm (this will be the structure for your bunting)
  3. Cut out diamond shapes from the brown paper (make sure the shapes fold in half to make a triangle)
  4. Write or print a guests name on the botton half of the diamond shape, do this for all your guests.
  5. Gather together all the pieces of paper with guests names on who are sitting at table 1. Fold the first paper diamond in half to make a triangle and wrap it over the string, now stick it down with pritt stick so you have a triangle bunting flag. Do the same for all the guests on that table.
  6. Pick up the two wooden dowels with the mini bunting now hanging from it and stake it into the potted plant in the blackboard bucket marked table 1
  7. Repeat this for all your tables

Don’t let your potted plants go to waste, nominate a special guest on each table to take the   plant in the blackboard bucket home with them.

Wedding Table Plan Ideas ~ Save The Date Magazine

If you follow our blog you’ll know I write regular features for Save The Date Magazine. This issue I have talked all about wedding table plans, coming up with your seating plan can be one of the hardest parts of planning the wedding. Read on for the rest of the article. wedding table plan ideas save the date magazine

Oh no, who have they sat us with?!

Coming up with the table plan can be one of the hardest parts when planning your wedding, choosing where everyone sits while keeping them happy at the same time. As well as choosing where everyone sits you also have to choose how to display your seating plan, no doubt you’ve spent a long time styling the rest of your wedding décor, it’s worth having a think about how you want your table plan to look to keep in with the style of your day.

There is help out there

Top table planner is an online tool which helps you get your seating plan right. Adam from Top Table Planner shares his top 3 tips for arranging your seating plan.

1.  Start as early as you can. Arranging the seating is widely recognised as one of the most stressful parts of planning a wedding and it can take longer than you think.

2.  Tackle the top table first as this is often the trickiest. Certainly don’t feel you need to stick to the traditional layout – do what works best for you!

3.  Ask your venue if they can accommodate a few different sized tables. This can make arranging your seating plan a lot easier.

Once you’ve decided where everyone is sitting comes the fun part, you can choose how to display it.

Perhaps you have a theme?

For a rustic wedding hang your table cards from rustic flower pots filled with country flowers on wooden boards, a lovely look for a Summer wedding. This rustic table plan was styled by Passion for Flowers, photography by

For a vintage styled wedding displaying your table plan in a vintage suitcase can look wonderful, or have you thought of having a seating plan displayed like a washing line. Vintage suitcase by Dottie Creations, washing line from The Vintage Drawer

If you like to travel as a couple have you thought about naming your tables after countries you’ve visited, your table plan could be styled on a world map with luggage tags as the table cards. Maybe you met in London and have certain memories from different areas of the city, use a London Underground map as the base of your table plan and name tables after areas which mean something special to you. For example the area of your first flat, first date etc.

Try your hand at DIY

For a DIY look for your table plan use a cream wire frame with luggage tags as table plan cards. The luggage tags can be styled with vintage keys hanging from each card, symbolising the key that unlocks your future. All of these items are available from

Alternatively use lots of different photo frames and set them up on a table, place your table cards inside the photo frames and dot around a couple of single stem roses in bottles to finish off the look.

Numbers with a difference

Are you thinking of keeping it simple and numbering your tables, sometimes table numbers can be seen as a hierarchy. You don’t have to number from 1 to 10. Why not use numbers which mean something special to you both. For example, 2 – date you met, 6 – days until your honeymoon, 9 – years you’ve been together, 23 – date you were engaged

Wedding Table Plans ~ Pinterest Board

One of our most common questions we get asked is what should I do for my wedding table plan? There are so many ways you can get creative with your table plan it really is up to you how you display it.

This can depend on whether you are numbering or naming your tables. If you are naming your tables perhaps let your table plan tie in to the theme you have chosen, for example if you are naming you tables after countries you have visited then a world map would make a lovely backing for your table plan.

It can depend on your overall style. If you are having blackboard details at your wedding a large blackboard makes a great table plan – perfect for any last minute changes too. Or perhaps your wedding is by the coast in which case shells collected from a local beach would make a nice addition.
