Create your own wedding mirror table plan seating chart – watch our video tutorial

Make a mirror/glass seating plan table plan with our vinyl decals. Easy.

With our peel n’ stick vinyl decals, you can adopt the trend for using mirrors and glass and DIY a simple, elegant and clean seating chart table plan. If you have already purchased out vinyl decals, this post will help you apply them easy and with great quality. Watch the video and FOLLOW ALL 10 STEPS to make your mirror table plan successfully.

Step 1 – Unpack and lay out

Unpack your vinyl sheets. Print the digital proof which we have signed off and use as a guideline to it all lay out. It is best to do it first on the mirror itself.

Step 2 – Prepare the tools

You MUST use a squeegee. It is important to press the letters really well with a hard flat rubber surface. This will make all the difference in removing the vinyl from the transfer tape and applying on the mirror with ease. The other two tools which will be good to have are a weeding tweezer (or just any regular pointy tweezer) and a cloth for glass.

Step 3 – Press really reeeeally well!

Press the vinyl sheets really well! Depending on your individual order, you might get a few tables one one sheet on each table on a separate sheet. First, press the back of the vinyl sheet for approximately 30-40 seconds FOR EACH TABLE and then the front where the transfer tape is for further 30-40 seconds. Remember to press all sides evenly and hard.

If your design is more complexed and is consist of more than 10 tables, you might find it easier to temporarily keep the vinyl sheets on the mirror BEFORE the transfer tape is removed. You can use small strips of sellotape to keep the vinyls in place. Then, you can execute Step No 3 on the mirror itself.

Step 4 – Remove the transfer tape

Even though you’ve press the vinyls well with the squeegee, you might get a few letters stuck on the sheet. If that happens, roll the transfer tape slightly just to cover that letter and press until the letter doesn’t detach from the sheet. Best results are achieved if you keep a 45 degree angle between the vinyl sheet and the transfer tape (unlike me on that picture).

Step 5 – Weed the vinyl

You might get a few bits of paper stuck to the sticky side of the vinyl like on the below picture. This happens if the blade cuts slightly deeper than the rest of the vinyl media. It is rear, but you may need to remove a few of the paper bits with a pointy tweezer.

Step 6 – Stick on the mirror

If you haven’t already secured the vinyl sheets on the mirror with tape (to know its exact position), now its time to get really precise with placing the vinyl lettering and transfer tape on the mirror. Keep a steady hand. Hold the transfer tape in the top corners and place gently on the mirror.

Step 7 – Press and press and press with the squeegee

The transfer tape is on the mirror. Well done. You can relax for a minute. This is your most important, yet most relaxing step. Press the vinyl lettering through the transfer tape with a squeegee A LOT. Before I made the video where I am pressing the two tables for approximately 40 seconds, I did another minute off camera. You really have to take your time with this and almost press every letter individually, especially the letter “i”, because of the dot.

Step 8 – Remove the transfer tape at 45 degree angle

If you have done Step 7 correctly as described above, removing the transfer tape should be a very satisfying and pleasurable experience. Remove the transfer tape at approximately 45 degree angle and only the vinyl lettering will stay on the mirror.

You may get a few letters that stay stuck on the transfer tape, same as when you were removing them from the vinyl sheet in Step No 4. Similarly, you can roll the transfer tape back on the mirror, press it with your squeegee and peel off.

Step 9 – The “Just in case” sheet

Every customer will receive a “Just in case” sheet with vinyl letters and dots of the letter ‘i’ the same font size. In the unlikely event of a few letters not being able to stick on the mirror, you can get them directly from the “Just in case” sheet with pointy tweezers and place them on the mirror separately.

Step 10 – Clean

To finish the table plan, use a dry clean glass cloth. Don’t worry to go over the letters with the cloth. They will not come off, so even if there is finger marks between the lines and the names, you can wipe and polish off.

Absolutely loved my mirrored seating plan. It was beautiful! Everyone commented on how professional it looked. Had a few breath holding moments when applying the vinyls to the mirror but it looked beautiful. Nelly was fantastic from first contact. Thank you so much for helping make my wedding day special!!

I would like to say a HUGE THANKYOU to Nelly who supported my company "The Event Designer" at a recent child's birthday party I styled and managed. Beautiful vinyl writing for both our Cake Display and Childrens Wheels on The Bus!

We have been working with Nelly for around 2 years now on various projects that come our way, Table plans, welcome signs, Quote displays, you name it, and she is always super friendly, highly professional and a dream to have as part of my team! I can definitely recommend, and look forward to our continued work together!! xx

Highly recommend, I ordered a mirrored table plan for my wedding in September 2019. Lovely company to deal with, I liaised with Nelly who was so helpful, reassuring about any potential changes that may have to be made along the way. Due to table layout, I did have to make changes to our table plan and it wasn’t any trouble at all. So pleased with how it looked on the day. Would definitely recommend this company. Thank you

Over the moon we got our table plan from Love Storey Weddings. So so helpful. Even when we had to make a few last minute amendments Nelly was beyond helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble and I’ve already had a few girls ask me for their weddings. My wedding planner had also asked for their details to use again for the future. Highly recommended !! Thank you so much again.

Brilliant and quick service. Communicated well with a stressed out bride :)
I messed up and vinyl and was devastated and she replaced it and I received it straight away.
Thank you it’s my favourite bit of the wedding so far.

I cannot recommend Nelly highly enough! The vinyl table plan she produced was perfect for our wedding. Nelly was so responsive to emails during the final few weeks of wedding prep when everything felt a little fraught. It was very much appreciated. Our table plan was a work of art! I totally loved it! Thank you x

Great communication and fast delivery. It was easy to apply the vinyls to the mirror table plan and the vinyls were the perfect size for the mirror. Thank you so much!

Can’t thank Nelly at love story enough. Needed stickers for wedding favours very last minute as the supplier I was planning to use stopped doing them. Nelly was actually fully booked just about to down tools for annual leave so didn’t want to commit to my order incase it wasn’t here on time. However when I explained I was really struggling to find anyone else who could do these Nelly so very kindly accepted the order and printed that day for me. Communication via email was so easy.
Thank you so much again for your kindness in doing this xxx
