Most people’s wedding receptions are the biggest and most expensive party they’ll ever throw.
Insider asked wedding professionals what reception trends and traditions couples can skip to save money and stress.
Skip individual place cards in favor of a big seating chart
The award-winning wedding master of ceremonies Artem Lomaz told Insider that place cards can add unnecessary expense, clutter, and confusion to a reception.
“Place cards often get lost or mislabeled and leave guests unsure of where to sit,” he said.
Instead, do a seating chart that’s easy to personalize and allows guests to orient themselves in the space.
