the seating plan

Traditionally, the bride and groom sit at a 'top table' with their parents, the chief bridesmaid and best man. However, if you want to avoid any complicated family politics - if your parents are divorced and are attending with their new partners, for example - it can be easier if the bride and groom host one table of family and friends and each parent host their own table. 

When it comes to eveyone else, don't be afraid of mixing up generations. This often works well, jollying up the older generation and keeping the high-spirited younger guests in check. Tables for six to eight people are ideal. Make sure each guest knows someone on their table and has a like-minded stranger nearby. As a rule, couples sit on the same table, but not next to each other.

Very helpful and kind service. Our wedding invitations were made very quickly, without any unnecessary delay and sent to us after only a few days. We are very pleased with the final result and it corresponded perfectly to our expectations. We would definitely recommend EB1 to anyone. Linda Yhland
