Simply Table Plans... help is at hand!

We often have brides and grooms ask us for our advice for recommendations of suppliers and for guidance on certain subjects and we are only too happy to help. One of the frequently asked questions as pressure mounts toward the big day seems to be about family politics and who should sit where, how do you work out who sits next to who, how do you do it without getting totally stressed out etc. We recently came across Top Table Planner via one of our brides and thought you may be interested in finding out a little bit more about this clever company.....

What is company name?
We are called TopTablePlanner.

What is your line of business?
We offer an online seating planning tool that helps to take the stress and headache out of arranging your wedding reception seating plan.

Instead of having to mess around with scraps of paper (that easily get blown around, moved by the cat or lost altogether) you simply drag your guests and tables around the screen until you’ve created the perfect plan.

If you want to make changes, it just takes a moment to load your plan and edit it, and because it’s web-based, you can make changes from home, work (just don’t tell your boss) or even on the train!

How and why the company begin?
Back in 2006, we were planning our own wedding and quickly realised how hard arranging the seating can be. Being from a technical background, I figured there must be a simpler solution to this and TopTablePlanner was born!

Are you married? If so tell us a little about your wedding….
Yes! Miranda and I were married at Windsor Guildhall (the same place that Prince Charles and Camilla and Elton John and David Furnish also got married at) in November 2006. Our winter wonderland themed reception was held at a restaurant in nearby Dorney – we even had a snow machine! :o) 

  What is in store for you in 2012/13
As always, we’ll be adding new features to the software and making it even easier to use than it already is.

We’ve already released a major update this year to make the software compatible with touchscreen devices such as the iPad and iPhone. To our knowledge we’re the only seating planning tool that lets you edit your plans on such a range of devices!

Tell us something super interesting about you or your business that we wouldn’t already know…?
TopTablePlanner has been used to plan the seating at a few celebrity weddings, and we’ve even seen Royalty on some guest lists!

Where are you based and where can you supply?
We’re based in Leeds, but the software can be used anywhere in the world! Since our launch in 2007, we’ve helped plan the seating at events in over 70 countries.
