I know lots of people on here are having one and will disagree with my decision, but we aren’t having one.  In the area where we are getting married, seating is always open.  I don’t think I’ve ever been to a wedding where there was a seating arrangement, so I can’t really say which I prefer.  I can only imagine the stress I’d feel if I added that onto everything else there is to plan!  Good luck!

I can’t wait to make mine. (sarcastically) There are some family feuds going on and that just makes things way more interesting, doesn’t it?

No seating chart is a big part of the reason we are having a cocktail style reception.

seating charts are evil…but at the same time a life saver. (or at least I hope so…) Do you have certain guests you have to keep away from eachother too?

One trick I am using is get a bit of poster board or large construction paper and cut it to scale for your room.  Then cut (or draw if your table shapes and sizes are set) the tables out to scale with marks where each person would sit.

then cut out and label squares (or circles if you like) for each guest.  Then you can mix and match and place to your hearts content without lots of erasing.  It also can give you an idea of the feel of the room.  (some things I have to see to really get a handle on it)

Mrs. Perfume posted a few weeks ago about the seating plan…she said Mrs. Bee gave her a trial version of PerfectTablePlan. You can download a free trial at http://www.perfecttableplan.com . I haven’t done this, but maybe it’s worth a try to calm some nerves.

ha. i’m just making one and telling people to sit there. if they complain, they can sit at one of the extra tables in the back. Maybe if they HATE where they’re sitting, they’ll get up, drink, and dance and mingle more.

I make a mock up seating chart and it wasn’t too bad. But, i’m not a very sympathetic person. I feel like i have better things on my mind than worrying about who so-and-so would want to sit with. I’m kind of lumping family together.
