For today, i would like to share my guests seating arrangement during reception.
Since it was an open area with canopies, Mak and I came out with this plan.
if you walk from the arch,
on your left side will be 2 canopies for en suami's families and 1 canopy for makan beradab
total of 3 canopies
on your right side will be 3 canopies for nomal guests
for families, seating arrangement..
1 canopy consisted of 4 round tables (10 covered chairs each table)
total : 80 VVIPs (2 canopies equals to 8 tables)
for normal guests, buffet arrangement..
1 canopy consisted of 2 long tables
each long table consisted of 30 covered chairs
total : 180 guests (3 canopies equals to 6 tables)
we also had 3 other canopies next to the house for other guests. still buffet arrangement to accommodate another 180 guests.
Grand Total : 10 canopies = 80 VVIPs, 360 normal guests at one time
to visualize apa yang saya tengah merepek ni...jom layan layout kt bawah ni..
white box : my house
purple boxes : normal guests - buffet/long table
tiffany boxes : en suami's families - seating/round table
yellow box : makan beradab area
red box : reception dais (my dais facing my house)
i tanye families and friends after wedding..
"ade tak tetamu yang datang tak dapat duduk n kena tunggu turn nak makan?"
diorg cakap" takde..so far semua orang datang terus duduk even during peak hour.."
alhamdulillah plan kami berjaya senangkan tetamu..
TIPS: You may consider long table rather than round one to allow more guests to sit under one canopy
