Table Seating Plans

As I am sure a lot of you have read on Weddingbee, some of the bees were given free copies of Perfect Table Plan software to review. I was one of the people given a copy and now one of you can have one too! I've been using it for a few weeks now...the software is really easy to use and I was even able to upload all our guest info from an Excel file. You layout your floor plan and then you can use the software to assign tables, assign individual seats, print place cards, even track RSVPs. You can also color code things for easy viewing: It took me about 20 minutes to upload all our guest info and start assigning seats...I thought it was pretty funny that you can even set codes for can't sit "next to" each other, can't sit "near" each other, etc. I was planning on mapping everything out in a spreadsheet, so this was a welcomed and easy to use alternative. The good news is, I was contacted about a giveaway so now you can comment below and enter to win your own copy! Its compatible with Mac and PC, and can definitely be used for events other than weddings so anyone is welcome to enter. Just leave a quick comment between now and 11PM CST Tuesday night and I'll randomly pick a winner on Wednesday. Good luck!

This software would be perfect to help me with seating assignments because I have a few situations where guests cannot be seated near each other... What a great feature!

Ooooh oooh oooh meee mee! I need all the help I can get - think reunited with my biological family - I have no idea how I'm going to appease everyone. And one other little challenge is that my venue is undergoing $20M in renos, and I haven't been able to see my space, so seating will have to be a last minute affair. Oh dear, just thinking of seating plans makes my head hurt!

Molly said...

Oh plllleeeeease choose me! This is the one thing I've been absolutely dreading -- to the point where I've had multiple nightmares about it.

Our families are VERY different and I'm going to need all the help I can get figuring out the tables. Fingers crossed!!!

Jennifer said...

wow, who couldn't use this? will it factor in a crazy grandmother?

Bree said...

I could totally use a copy! :)

Amanda said...

My family is not accustomed to the whole assigned seating thing so when I told my mom I wanted to do it she flipped telling me it was nothing but a waste of time. Maybe if she was able to see it in action by using this software she would become more comfortable with the ideas since there is no chance of her attending a wedding with assigned seating before my big day to see how nice it is and how everything runs more smoothly with a assigned seating.

David & Becky said...

This would be a lifesaver for me!!!! I can't begin to describe how much my skin crawls at the idea of organizing seating. Please save my fiance from my ranting!!

AEO said...

This would be a great addition to my wedding planning that we'd use for both the rehearsal dinner (100 guests) and the wedding. I'd really appreciate being picked!!!

Thanks for hosting!
