How to collaborate on your seating plan with others in Table Planner.

[/vc_column_text][gem_divider margin_top=”20″ margin_bottom=”10″][vc_column_text]Creating a seating chart can be stressful. It’s also one of the many things to do just before your big event. We hope that Table Planner is making the task easier by providing easy import of your Guest List and a simple drag & drop tool to seat your guests. But you can also make it all even less stressful by involving others. This could be your future wife or husband, the bridal party or your parents. Or all of the above! Anyone that has a good insight into the family and friends politics and dynamics could be an asset and make it less stressful. They can provide you with information that you may not be aware of, such as for instance; this uncle isn’t speaking with this cousin at the moment, so don’t seat them next to each other! All this is very useful information to have when you are planning your seating arrangements. [/vc_column_text][gem_divider margin_top=”20″ margin_bottom=”10″][vc_column_text]
