It’s Wednesday guys… This Asheville wedding photographer is going to share some of our favorite alternatives to traditional seating charts that we’ve seen over the last few years! We love to photograph weddings that have unique twists – basically we believe anything different or nontraditional rocks!!! When it comes to planning your wedding, focusing on the details is a great way to add your own spin on things!! Today I’ve compiled a list of our favorite alternative seating plans!
Melissa and Ray’s Zama Beach Club wedding on beautiful Isla Mujeres had the most amazing beach details. Their “message in a bottle” seating assignments had a very destination wedding feel! With a smaller guest count and just 3 tables…. everyone enjoyed meandering under the lanterns to find the bottle with their name on it!
Gia and Michael’s elegant mountain wedding had (still to this day) some of the most beautiful details I’ve ever seen. Their florist created these beautiful rustic yet elegant seating tags strung in birch branches… Guests found the tag with their names as they strolled from cocktail hour into a magnificent 5-tiered Sperry Tent.
These key tags hung on a vintage wood backdrop were adorable! On the tables in the reception tent were corresponding door handles for guests to find.
Sarah and Matt’s fall wedding at the Old Edwards Inn in the mountains of WNC had paper airplanes folded with guests names and table number. For a destination or travel-themed wedding I thought this was perfect!
These custom-cut wooden hearts with the guests names on the front side and table number on the back were so, so cute! Guests could take this home at the end of the night as a momento! I also loved the way these were presented in a beautiful wooden box with moss and birch wood.
This was one of the most beautiful + practical ways for seating your guests. As cocktail hour ended, guests found the vase of flowers with their name attached and carried it to their table. A seating chart, a variety of decoration for the tables and a favor for your friends and family to take home… all in one! So pretty too!
Simple, rustic cards placed on beautiful handcut birch logs made the perfect seating arrangement for Rachel and Michael’s candlelit winter wedding.
For a wedding with lots of kids, these pinwheels with names and a table number on them would be a huge hit. It’s fun, slightly whimsical and you can get them in any color combination you wish to complement your wedding colors!

As an elopement photographer and outdoor enthusiast I get absolutely giddy with excitement when helping fellow adventure seekers, travelers, dreamers & fun-loving couples plan their experience based, intentional wedding days.
I live on the road full time traveling the country in my dream home on wheels – a 38' long fully off grid, converted bus.
Some of my favorite adventures include: Backpacking and ice climbing in Alaska, hiking the Napali Coast on Kauai, trekking in the jungles of Costa Rica.
