Why doesn’t the venue provide this service?

@beccanmatt08:  Mine is the same, and it’s actually my biggest worry about the upcoming day, so far.  My MOH’s husband has volunteered himself (so sweet) to move the tables really quickly and my fiance just says his groomsmen are going to help, as well.  I have a day of coordinator who will make sure it gets done.  I don’t think there’s much you can do except assign it to the wedding party, or maybe the fathers?

Your DOC should bring assistants if she needs help, it shouldn’t be your guests’ responsibility.

my venue provides this service – i’d check with them. Your guests – family or not – should not be the ones setting things up.

I think if possible you should hire someone to do this… I know that Fi would not be happy if he got stuck moving tables and didnt get to go to the coctail hour and I would be annoyed to be at the coctail hour alone without him…

Check at your local culinary school. You can usually hire culinary school students to work special events for a reasonable amount of money.  They can not only take care of your table flipping, but also serve as waiters and bartenders.  Do not ask your guests to do this, and don’t assume that your bridal party will have the time.
