Is anyone else stressing about seating plans trying to make sure people sit by appropriate people is crazy my main problem is step parent and biological parents and other family members who don't get on with others rahhhhhhhhh my God it's frustrating me
We are not having a seating plan. We have one guest who is a lovely person but disabled and needy. Normally I happily take her out for days as I enjoy her company but I can't tend to her on my wedding day. Knowing that I want her to be part of the day but knowing my concerns, several of my friends have stepped in and said they will all ensure she is not left out and will take turns to ensure someone is with her at all times to push her wheelchair during the day. However, the evening would be impossible with a seating plan as they could not change seats in a carefree way so that she doesn't realise what is happening. It would be totally unfair for someone to be left with her all evening. You may find that without a seating plan that people will sit with those they want to and not those they don't want to.
I think that's a fantastic thing hun ,you both thinking of her and yourself and you sound an amazing friend. that is a good idea for the floor but some are on the top table so I might have to do that table at least. thank you so much for your feed back xx
Thanks Sarah. What about just the two of you sit on what I think is called a 'sweetheart' table and then have a 'top' table for each half of the family on either side? I don't envy you if there are strong personalities involved but really, they should put their feelings aside for your day because after all, it is YOUR day. Good luck.
Thank you hun thank you for your ideas they are all very strong and 2 people can't stand each other 😑 but I'm sure they will not start anything or I will go bridezilla on them lol ,thank you and good luck on your day congratulations again x
We’ve had a small top table with only Bride, groom, best man, MOH and our boys ... my parents are split with Mum married again .. so I’ve split them to tables on opposite sides of the room with member of the grooms family too ...
This is why we've opted for a 'mingle' seating plan and a buffet.
God no I am letting people sit where they like
Nope - had a BBQ! all outdoors, like a picnic, so people sat where they want! Wedding planning is stressful enough, without adding drama to it!
We are letting our guests sit where they like too
I never had a seating plan and it work fine x
Put people into groups then worry about the tables later. They are sat in that place for two hours maximum so it will be fine
