- Wedding: June 2009
So every wedding source tells us to assign seating, or at least assign the guests to tables to make everyone’s life easy. I’ve never been to a wedding where the seats or tables were assigned; I’ve always seen the reserved tables for family, but a free for all for everyone else. My fiance doesnt think we should assign tables, and I don’t think any of my guests expect it. I’m wondering if it’s a regional thing, so have you or will any of you be assigning seats or tables. Will my guests be offended/thrown off if I do?
The reception isn’t too formal, it’s an outdoor buffet under a tent. But since the ceremony and reception are at the same place, everyone (106 people) will be entering the area at the same time. I feel like I’d be perceived as controlling if I assigned everyone to tables.The other problem is I can’t get everyone to tell me whether or not they’re coming, so maybe I’ll just leave some empty seats in case people decide to show up.
Have you been to wedding where they assigned tables? What are other WV brides doing?
