Sorting your table plan is one of the trickiest parts of your planning. Will Aunty Beryl get on with your old school friends Jules and Jack? How will Grandpa fare sitting next to your sister-in-law? Fret not. Get guests talking with a bit of light-hearted entertainment in the form of Table Tasks (www.tabletasks.com), personalised ice-breakers.
It's really simple: at each place setting is an envelope displaying the guest's name and the message 'Open on instruction'. Inside each envelope is a task, such as 'Tell the table how you met the bride' or - for more adventurous sorts - 'Kiss the groom in two places beginning with H'. Tasks are tailored to suit the guests and are a fun way to get the conversation flowing.
The price is tailored to what you need and the size of your bash, but expect to pay from £195.
