- Wedding: October 2012
My venue is a little non-traditional (it is normally a concert space) and has only 4-person tables. Because of the room’s long and narrow layout, large 8 or 10 person tables muck up the flow and make it hard to get around, so they really recommend sticking with the small ones. FI and I really like the look of having lots of small tables anyway, so we’re good with them.
The questions is, how do I do a seating chart? We are having 80-100 guests. I feel awkward arbitrarily assigning which couple sits with which couple. Luckily neither of us have any families coming that are larger than 4, so splitting up groups is not going to be an issue.
FMIL suggested splitting the room into three zones: one for FI’s family, one for my family, and one for all of our friends. This way people that know each other will be sitting close to one another and can talk between tables. We’ll give each zone a different color and change the centerpiece color to match.
I like the zone idea and have so far decided to do that, but I thought I’d ask you ladies if you had any other ideas.
