What you will need
- A vintage style photo frame (glass removed)

- A set of luggage tags – one for each number of tables
- A hanging wedding sign
- A piece of paper and a printer
- Scissors and glue
How to make your vintage-style table plan
Print your guest names onto an A4 sheet of paper and cut each table to size. Choose a font that fits your theme. Then you can glue these onto your luggage tags.
Select a ribbon to match your theme or colour scheme. Round off the end with a pair of scissors and then fold over the end of the ribbon approximately 2-3 cm and make a small cut in the ribbon. Secure this onto the top hook of the frame.
Cut the ribbon to the length of the frame and fix into place with a strong glue or staple in place.
To fix the luggage labels to the ribbon, glue a strip down the luggage tag and secure to the ribbon to keep it flat and in place.
Secure your Mr & Mrs sign or To Have To Hold sign on the hooks and hang in place for your guests to admire!
When your wedding is over you can either keep the table plan as a special memento of your day or replace it with photos of your wedding!
