Your wedding seating chart is a piece of décor that is essential to the venue. It also helps guests navigate their way around the area and ensures there are no mix-ups on event day. Making sure that your wedding seating chart looks immaculate and fits in with your other wedding day décor is essential. So, within this latest post, we’ll highlight the five types of wedding seating chart.
Banner Stand Seating Chart
The banner stand seating chart is a great option for a broad range of venues. One of the leading benefits to using this system is that it can easily be moved from one area to another and so you can change the placement of the seating chart based on how guests interact with your venue space. It does not require an easel because it’s freestanding with a built-in frame.
Acrylic Seating Chart
Many couples also choose an acrylic wedding seating chart. The acrylic material is designed for the highest levels of durability and is also transparent. It’s ideal for outdoor wedding venue applications and can be leaned against a brick wall for the ideal background view.
Foamcore Seating Chart
We can customize your foamcore seating chart according to your unique design requirements. The material is that the product is very lightweight, therefore it’s simple to move and suitable for a range of wedding venue environments.
Mirror Seating Chart
The mirror seating chart adds a touch of elegance to any wedding day. The system is built in a classical style to blend seamlessly with any venue décor.
Hanging Banner Seating Chart
A leading benefit to the hanging banner seating chart is that it can be used in venues where space is at a premium. The system is suitable for most spaces and is designed to be easily placed for simple reference by all guests on event day. We can also add grommets to the seating chart for a simple hanging process. In addition, the lightweight chart can be hung from anywhere in the venue.
One of the challenges for many couples about to get married is planning the aesthetic of their wedding day. What will their décor look like? How can they choose the right products from the right company? Our team at Best Wedding Backdrops has great experience in the wedding décor marketplace, and in our latest post, we’ll highlight another ideal addition for those seeking wedding ideas – have a guestbook for your guests to sign. Here, we’ll showcase several reasons to select our latest guestbook product for your event.
A keepsake to be framed
Your new guestbook can act as the ideal memory of your wedding day event. The picture of you and your fiancé will be filled with best wishes from friends and family and will include information you might have forgotten from the event in the long-term future. You can then frame this keepsake to be treasured and read over and over again throughout your happy years together.
Simple signing process
One of the reasons so many couples are now choosing our latest guestbook product is that the system stands up on its own and doesn’t have to be propped up with additional equipment. It’s easy for your guests to stand and to be integrated within your wedding venue equipment. The system is built simply for ease of use throughout the wedding day. All you have to do is decide where it fits within the décor of your venue!
You can purchase the frame
If you have upcoming events in the future such as anniversary events and or baby showers, you can simply purchase the frame through us and pay for a new graphic image for the frame. The process ensures that each of your momentous occasions are stored long in the memory for you to enjoy over many years. It’s part of the reason many turn to Best Wedding Backdrops for wedding sign ideas.
We Can Help
You’ve invested part of your wedding budget for wedding décor rentals. It’s important that you capitalize on the many uses for the rentals at your wedding events. Our team at Best Wedding Backdrops has helped thousands of couples achieve full value for money from their rental products, and in this latest post, we’re highlighting our guide to your options for using wedding décor rentals.
At the bridal shower, you’ll be inviting your friends and family to enjoy games and social time in one another’s company. The event venue should be decorated using high caliber graphic products that enhance the environment. You can work with wedding décor rentals such as our new Blooming Flowers backdrop, which can be used for its classic appeal at bridal showers. This style of backdrop is ideal for use in decorating venue walls and adding colour to the venue space.
A baby shower is a celebration of the happy couple’s love of one another and of their growth as a family. You can blend the rentals with baby themed graphics to help enhance the environment at the shower venue. There are a number of great baby shower rental options for those looking to decorate their shower venue and our team at Best Wedding Backdrops can help you with this important process. One option is a photo booth rental, which will allow you to create lasting memories of the event.
The very first step in your life together as a married couple is the engagement party. It’s the event at which the bride’s family and the groom’s family come together to celebrate with one another and having the ideal décor for the occasion is important. Our Rose Garden backdrop is a great option because it signifies the blossoming of the relationship and can be used at any venue, whether it’s a room in a home or at a local event space.
When you need signs for your wedding day event, it’s important that you consult closely with an industry expert with a comprehensive understanding of the marketplace. Our team at Best Wedding Backdrops has significant experience in this area of the marketplace, and within our latest post, we’ll highlight our wedding welcome sign products and various other options we offer.
- Foamboard signs
One of the leading mistakes many people make when organizing their wedding is using chalkboards as signs at the wedding venue. This can cause significant problems at the venue because the chalk dirties everything in the area. Why not turn to Best Wedding Backdrops for a custom graphic design printed on foamcore that looks like chalkboard but without the mess? It can cost less than the chalkboard and ensure your wedding venue remains in pristine condition.
- Acrylic bar menus
An acrylic bar menu can help to provide that unparalleled style that the best wedding events exude. We can custom design the acrylic bar menu for you so that it blends perfectly with your other décor. We can also create added touches that ensure a special menu is designed specifically for your event in response to your personal tastes.
- Picture Frame signs
Our team has considerable experience in creating frame styles for wedding events. Whether you want a mirror with a frame for the main area at a reception or a foam core sign with a frame, we can provide the ideal product at the right price for your event budget. One of the main benefits of working with Best Wedding Backdrops is our comprehensive understanding of event day requirements and our commitment to service with precision.
Our experts at Best Wedding Backdrops have decades of experience in the industry.

Discovering the range of rental options for your wedding day décor can help you to make a more informed decision your important day. Our team at Best Wedding Backdrops has significant experience in the wedding display marketplace, and within our latest post, we’ll focus on the subject of how to use easels as wedding day décor rentals.
Mount signage on it
Another great way to harness easels as wedding décor rentals is to mount signage on the easel. The signage can be used to highlight photobooths or other events at the wedding to ensure guests can easily make their way to the destination. The durability of the easel makes it the ideal choice for signage as it can help to minimize problems with signs falling to the floor or bending.
Use to hold the guest book
The guest book for your wedding day event will be an important part of the festivities. It will be one of the first elements with which your guests interact for their wedding day event and it will help ensure that you have a lasting memory of the event that can be treasured for the years to come. For those that are considering wedding décor rentals, an easel can be used to hold your guest book. The easel makes it easy for guests to flip through the book on the day and to see the messages that others have left. It can also be used to help prevent damage to the guest book as it allows the book to simply be opened without lifting.
Mount a custom print of the couple
Another great way to use an easel at the wedding is to mount a custom print of the happy couple. This can easily be achieved by simply printing a high-quality photo and then placing the photo on the easel in a high visibility location. You might consider placing it at the center table during the reception or close to the aisles during the ceremony.
One of the leading challenges many couples face when organizing a wedding is trying to save on wedding table decorations. Reducing the cost of your wedding table decorations can ensure your budget is more flexible in other areas. To help guide you in saving money on your wedding day décor budget, we’re highlighting ideas for affordable wedding table decorations in this latest post.
Print one menu per table
One of the best ideas to save money in your wedding table decoration budget is to simply print one menu per table. It’s unlikely that the guests at the table won’t know each other, and so you can ensure that you save on printing costs by having one menu per table beautifully placed in the center of the table. Speak with your decorations expert to discuss menu printing options.
Review the price per piece for centerpieces
Your table centerpieces will be an important part of the wedding experience for guests. But you can save money and time by simply reviewing the price per piece directly and then making a decision that best fits your budget and the occasion. Discuss the pricing options with multiple centerpiece designers and determine which option best suits your needs for your wedding day.
Print only one number per table
Make sure that you print only one table number per table. Some couples try to have table numbers that are visible from multiple angles around the room, but this can be an additional cost that rises significantly when you have 10 or 50 tables in the room to decorate.
Choose simple over complex
Simple, tasteful wedding table decorations can help you save money while improving the ambiance of the event. Many will find that their guests appreciate having only simple decorations at their table rather than having to move larger displays around as they try to enjoy their meal and spend time with family and friends on event day. It’s important that you consult with a display expert to determine which décor options combine simplicity and elegance.
The wedding venue bar is the area of the event at which many guests will gather as the evening’s festivities come to an end. They will make their way to this area to meet and greet others and to hopefully catch a moment or two with the happy couple. To ensure guests navigate the wedding venue effectively, let’s look at a few wedding bar sign ideas for your big day.
- His and her drinks options
You might use the wedding bar sign to showcase his and her wedding drinks. The bride will suggest some drinks and the groom will suggest some drinks for everyone to try and these drinks options can be displayed in full detail using wedding bar signs. This can give the bar display area a personal touch and will encourage conversation between guests.
- List of all the options at the bar
One of the simplest wedding bar sign ideas is the basic list of the alcohol available at the bar. This list is ideal for those who might have inexperienced bartenders pouring the drinks. The list can help the guest easily find what they want without having to ask the bartender if their favorite option is available. You might also consider adding some ingredients to the list of drinks options to ensure that all dietary restrictions are taken into consideration.
- Couple’s favorite drinks
Another great option for a wedding day bar sign is a sign that has the couple’s favourite drinks displayed. This list could include all the options that the happy couple have in mind for their own enjoyment on the wedding day. The sign could give guests their own ideas about potential drinks options. When making the list, consider the available options and ensure that favourite drinks are easily available at the bar.
We Can Help
Couples across Ontario are currently trying to design and create their ideal wedding décor on a budget. Our team at Best Wedding Backdrops understands how challenging this process can be. That’s why we’re highlighting our work with past clients, and general advice from our experts in this latest post.
- Let’s talk about the design; how did these clients get a custom design without cost?
“Well, these clients originally came to us wanting a mirrored Table Seating Chart. We informed them that we don’t have a mirror on hand that is big enough for us to print all the names on to, so they would have to bring in their own mirror. After several back and forth discussions, we concluded that the mirror they wanted to use would not work for the Table Seating Chart, we then showed them their other options. One of those was a Foamcore Table Seating Chart, a very cost effective- custom signage option. The couple loved the idea and we advised them to choose a design that is very simple if they want to stay under the 15-minute free design time (anything taking over 15 minutes to design will be charged). Once they sent us the design we forwarded it to our graphic designer and she let us know it would take her under 15 minutes to design this specific design.”
- What do the clients have to supply for the graphic designer to create the cost-effective Table Seating Chart?
“We advise our clients to supply us with as many details as possible to minimize the amount of time it would take our graphic designer to create it for them. For example, we would ask them to include details like an image for reference, colour of text and other images like leaves for example, wording they want to be used, font style and size, layout (horizontal vs. vertical), so on and so forth. As well we require an Excel spreadsheet for the Table Seating Chart that includes all the names and tables for the sign. It should be formatted by the way the customer wants the seating chart organized (by table, alphabetically by first or last name etc.) From there, we can copy and paste the names/ tables instead of organizing their names our self which would result in extra design charges. Ultimately, the more design details for your signs you give us the less chance there is of you incurring additional design charges.”
- Are all the custom tips the same for other signage?
“Table Seating Charts take the longest to design when it comes to types of signage. Usually, signage like Welcome Signs, Order of Event Signs, and Bar Menu Signs are a lot less detail oriented because they don’t require the names, so they take a lot less time to design (if you don’t go with an extremely complicated design). But for all types of signage, you want to follow the above suggestions if you want a custom design without the cost. Please keep in mind the same follows for our other custom products like Dance Floor Decals, Custom Backdrops, and Acrylic/ Mirror Signage. Just be really organized and have all your details ready for us!”
- What if a customer wants custom design and doesn’t mind paying the additional design charges, should they still follow the above suggestions?
“Yes, it’s always helpful too because we aren’t out to take all your money. Design can add up quite quickly because, as any graphic designer knows; it’s easy to quickly design something average, but it takes longer to design something beautiful. We recommend giving us as many details as possible so that, even if you want an elaborate design that will take a bit, we can still cut down the costs for when we add additional design time to your invoice.”
- Are customers informed of how much they will be spending or not spending on design before their product is finished?
“Yes, one of the things we pride ourselves in at BWB is how upfront and forward we are with our customers. When customers come to us and show us a design that they would like us to recreate, we forward it to our graphic designers and ask them how long approximately it would take them to recreate it to the best of their ability. When we get the answer, we let the customers know, for example this design would take about 2-3 hours, so there would be additional design charges of $130.00. We as well let the customers know they have a couple of options; we can recreate the design, and charge for additional design hours, or we can create a design like it.
Sometimes, we aren’t able to recreate certain images, for example a forest, something like that would either take forever to design or we wouldn’t be able to design a graphic like that in the first place, so that’s when royalty free images come into play. If we cannot find the certain image off free royalty free websites like Pexel or Pixabay we would have to resort to iStock, which charges for royalty free images. Our team at BWB would be able to assess your design and let you know if there would be any extra design charges and as well if we would need to purchase any images to create the certain design and charge the price to the invoice. There are no hidden costs when you choose our company to create custom wedding decor for your Ontario event/ wedding.”

Holding your wedding outdoors can allow you to enjoy nature as you commit your life to your partner. But outdoor events bring with them their own unique set of problems. If you’re planning an outdoor event for the coming months, it’s important you consider how to plan for the occasion. As a starting point, we’re highlighting our tips for using wedding reception backdrops outdoors.
- Sandbag the backdrop to the ground
The wind can make it exceptionally difficult to keep the backdrop in place while holding an outdoor event. In the planning stages for your wedding reception, you should use a sandbag to hold the backdrop in the ground. In many cases, wedding backdrops have been known to fly across the venue space like a kite in the wind. Not only can this destroy your entire wedding aesthetic, it may also cause injuries among the attendees.
- Add a black backer
In some cases, wedding reception backdrops can become transparent when exposed to the sun. This can diminish the entire effect of the backdrop, and limit the value of the investment within the display product. Make sure that you take the time to add a black backer to the display. The black backer can be used to close off the display to the sunlight, and help improve the impact backdrops have within the wedding reception space.
- Consider natural lighting
Natural lighting should be used where possible to highlight the backdrop. In an outdoor space, there is limited need for artificial lighting products, which can detract from the natural beauty of the event. You may wish to work with a specialist design team when selecting your backdrop to capitalize on the unique outdoor lighting. The natural lighting from the sun can provide an unparalleled aesthetic that helps create the ideal event experience for both the happy couple and their guests.
