I have a burning question– why do people do seating charts?  I didn’t for my wedding.  I figured people could just find a spot for themselves to sit and choose who they want to dine with.

 

*Someone did tell me I was being silly for not making seating assignments, but then, I only had  120 guests…

@JaneyDcat:  It depends on how big your wedding is and if your guests know each other.  We had about 190, but there were 7 different groups (my family, his family, my friends from home, his friends, our work friends, friends from school, My parents’ friends) If we didn’t have a seating chart, more than likely, people would be spread out and may not all be able to sit together. Sure I like to mingle, but for dinner, I would like to sit with people I know since a lot of times, weddings are reunions amongst family and friends. I think a lot of people would feel the same.

@babycakes24:  I think chargers look nice. If it is in your budget, then go for it. I probably wouldn’t do royal blue for tablecloths. I don’t get a “romantic” feel from royal blue. Maybe a lighter color like blush pink, ivory, or champagne? Do you have another color besides the blue, like an accent color? I think your favor box ribbon should match whatever color you decide for the tablecloth.

What if you had a medium shade of pink tablecloths with a little bit of texture to it, silver chargers, and royal blue napkins tied with something that was white and a pale pink flower laying on top?

Maybe some chair sashes too–blue maybe? Will that make the chairs too dark? Or white sashes?

I would go for a blush pink cloth, silver chargers, and blue napkins with ties that match the cloth (I would place them stop the charger).

What do you plan ofn doing for a favor? Whatever it is, I would use navy as an accent, not a main color (maybe use it for the label or a ribbon)
