What is the first thing, you think, your guests will notice as soon as they enter your wedding venue? (After they've stopped drooling about the what's on the menu😛) The decor! The wedding decoration steals the first glance and exudes a whole vibe about your wedding, way before your guests are provided with the hospitality and those scrumptious dishes.
One such element of your wedding decor that gets a lot of attention is the seating area (for obvious reasons) and that's where you need to pay the most attention too. Whether you're opting for a sit-down brunch party or a poolside mehndi, how you seat yourself and the guests, frames the look and feel of your wedding. And there's no reason you shouldn't pay detailed thought into your wedding seating ideas. Every seating set up will require a different approach keeping the aesthetics and theme of your wedding in mind.
Before you go ahead to finalise your wedding decor, here's your dose of inspiration for wedding seating ideas!
It goes without saying that the couple seating gets the most attention from the guests and the shutterbugs and so it's important that you choose your decor themes and designs particularly. Also, since the couple spends most of the time sitting, your seating area should be nothing less than a dream come true.
