It’s officially December, which means holiday parties galore! Add an engagement during the holiday season and this time of year just got *that* much more magical! If it’s your first time hosting a holiday party, you’ll need to know how to handle a seating chart and Sandy Hammer, Co-Founder of AllSeated is here to guide you to a no-stress seating chart this holiday season!
1. Assign tables not seats, for a laid-back feel
For any event with over 20 attendees and a plated dinner, we recommend having some type of seating arrangement. If you’re striving for a laid-back, casual feel we suggest assigning tables – not seats to guests. This will help guarantee that couples will sit together (even if they arrive late) and will help keep guests at ease.
2. Formal Is Fun Too
If you want your holiday party to feel a bit more formal, we suggest assigning guests to a specific table & seat. AllSeated offers you the perfect tools to make this process easy and pain-free.
Simply enter your guests in the guest list section of your AllSeated account. From here, you’ll be able to select the exact sized tables that you’re using from the furniture library and be able to create the most accurate floor plan & seating chart possible.
Pro tip: With AllSeated, you’ll be able to even view this floor plan in 3D!
3. Think About The Kids
Kids-only tables help children feel special and welcome at any party! When you double the ‘kids table’ as an art station – we guarantee that the kids will be entertained all night. We suggest putting a white paper tablecloth down and suggest filling a few tin cans with crayons. Hand kids a themed placemat, which they could color during dinner and take home at the end of the night! You could also add foam stickers for a 3D element!
4. Make Your Rounds as a Couple
Since you’ll be hosting this holiday party as a couple, make it a point to mingle with each of your guest. If you’re having a formal seating chart, consider moving tables for each course. This way you’ll be able to spend time with all of your guests! We also suggest round tables as they help conversation flow between guests!
5. Mingle Your Families Through Seating
Family dynamics can be complicated at holiday parties, so we suggest blending families throughout the seating chart so they have the opportunity to get to know one another and other guests.
If your wedding day is quickly approaching, it may be nice to have your friends and family meet and get to know each other over the holiday season first.

Kleinfeld co-owner, Mara Urshel & head buyer Dorothy Silver spent bridal fashion week seeking out the hottest new wedding dresses for 2017 brides. From runway shows to private appointments, Urshel & Silver saw over 40 designers and hundreds of new wedding dresses! Below are the 2017 wedding trends and a few of Mara Urshel’s favorite wedding dresses that will be new to Kleinfeld in 2017!
1) Mermaid Silhouette
You heard it here first! The mermaid silhouette is not going anywhere and will continue to be a HUGE trend in wedding dresses!
Dress Designer: Eve of Milady
2) The Plunging Neckline
Be on the lookout for plunging necklines! The deep-v will add a touch of sexiness to any type of silhouette.
Dress Designer: Christos
3) Long sleeves
On trend since Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011, long sleeves are back but with a twist! Cuffs, ruffles and bell sleeves will add volume and femininity to any wedding dress.
Dress Designer: Pnina Tornai
4) Halter Necklines
We were surprised at how many designers showcased halter necklines this market. A bejeweled halter creates a classic look, while deceptively narrowing broad shoulders.
Dress Designer: Dennis Basso
We saw many removeable overskirts on the runways this market. These overskirts create two looks in one — and it’s perfect for indecisive brides!
Dress Designer: Lazaro
6) Sophisticated Glamour
For the bride who’s looking for a classic look with a major wow factor!
Dress Designer: Maggie Sottero
7) Tip of the Shoulder
A new take on the classic strapless dress, say hello to this tip-of-the-shoulder wedding dress that’s a mix between the spaghetti strap and a cap-sleeve. Grandma approved sleeves that will still allow you to throw your hands up and dance!
Dress Designer: Romona Keveza
