Table plan.

Oh the table plan. One of the more stressful parts of any wedding. Who to sit where? Well I've decided not to worry about that just yet and just get on with making it! I really wanted to make it myself and after looking at several blogs, developed the idea below.

It all started with a blank canvas. Well, technically it was a canvas with a big, ugly flower on it from Dunelm that was reduced to £6.99 (blank canvases from art shops were a LOT more ££). I then covered it in Cath Kidston material using my glue gun. Well, technically, Cath Kidston style material from ebay!!

Next, with the help of my trusty glue gun, I attached lengths of ribbon.

I decided to use all different kinds of ribbon, as you may have guessed from the dresses below, I don't like anything to be too matchy!

For the names, I used luggage tags. I stamped each person's name on to a bit of pink card (letter by letter) as this meant I wasn't wasting luggage tags if I made a mistake and also it looked better (in my opinion). I stuck the name to the tag and used a cute little peg to attach to the table plan.

Hearts are a running theme throughout the wedding so I was pleased I found the pegs. They fit in well. As for the table names, I'll keep you guessing on that for a little while.
