When planning your wedding design, “guestimates” can result in table linen that’s too short or an overcrowded ballroom. Still trying to figure out what I mean? Think about how bad it looks when celebrities are “shimmying” between the banquet tables at the Golden Globes. (That ballroom is painfully too small for that event!)
Here are five (5) valuable measurement tools you can use as you determine key parts of your wedding day design —
1. Reception Venue Size — This sizing chart is key to ensuring that your ballroom or event space is large enough for the banquet tables, dance floor, deejay’s table, etc. You can find this sizing chart in the guidebook, “Perfect Fit: Wedding Planning Guidebook for Sizing, Rentals, Staffing & Tenting.”
2. Tent Size — This sizing chart can be found in the guidebook, “Perfect Fit: Wedding Planning Guidebook for Sizing, Rentals, Staffing & Tenting,” and you can use to measure the correct tent size you need for your wedding or event.
3. Aisle Runner Length — Download this chart from the Enlightened Creative web site to ensure you order (or make) the right aisle runner length. If you want more information, check out the wedding ceremony guidebook titled, “Love, Laws and Logistics: A Planning Guidebook for Christian and Jewish Wedding Ceremonies.”
4. Dance Floor Size — Our book titled, “Music Notes: A Planning Guidebook for Your Wedding Day Music” includes a chart that will help you determine your correct dance floor measurement. You don’t want a dance floor that is too small or too big.
5. Table Linen Size — We have a chart available in our book titled, “Perfect Fit: Wedding Planning Guidebook for Sizing, Rentals, Staffing & Tenting,” and it gives you all of the info you need to determine the correct linen size for the banquet tables, cocktail reception tables, buffet tables, etc.
