Q I'm trying to find a wow-factor table plan that will be a real focal point at our wedding. How would you suggest I achieve this?
A Jenna Wake says: You can create a wow factor table plan by thinking outside the box and not choosing a standard printed board. Create a design by adding colours to match your wedding, add metallic leaf or try different layouts. Set your guestlist in alphabetical order rather than table order to speed up the process of getting your guests seated.

You can try having the table plan in a freestanding box or hanging from a rail. You can also add florals or candles around the bottom to really make it pop.

Add a personal touch by printing photos of your guests and say 'find your face, find your place' or you can write personalised notes to each guest in mini envelopes with their table number on.

The last thing is location, place your table plan as the central focus as your guests enter the dining area. This will make an immediate focal point and conversation starter.

Q We love bright summer colours and want to incorporate them into our stationery. Do you have any suggestions?
A Vicky Siggins says: I'd suggest using one or two different colours along with a few leafy greens. I personally love florals boarding around the information, so it really stands out. Incorporating the same theme through all your stationary works so well.
