Colorful & Convenient

Create stylish seating charts in minutes

First, you can build table seating chart layouts by using a wide variety of floorplan elements - including round, rectangular, square and oval tables as well as chair rows, floors, stages and architectural items. Plus you can label and add custom colors to any element you place ... and everything is to-scale.

Once all your elements have been added, you can start assigning guests to seats. The guest list tool makes it easy to see who has been added to the layout and who has not, and it also tells you what table they have been added to and their meal choice. And when it comes time to print out your work, our event seating chart app lets you quickly download PDFs for colorful, printable seating chart documents.

Easy Guest List Management

Track all your guest details in one convenient place

Inside our seating chart creator tool is a powerful guest list manager that gives you complete control over your attendees. You can enter your guests in manually or import them from a file or another application (like Gmail, Salesforce or MailChimp) - including all their contact details (email addresses, phone numbers, mailing addresses, etc.).

Once your guests have been added, you can put them into groups or families as well as add Plus Ones to guests. You can also track the RSVP status for each guest - including their meal choices and responses to custom questions. You can even download PDF or .csv files of your guest list as well as download printable name tags. And, of course, you can place your guests (and their Plus Ones) onto seats in your floorplan and easily move them by clicking, dragging and dropping.
