I have never heard of that. I would just thank her for the suggestion but not state that on the invitations.

That’s ridiculous…I would just say thanks for your input and move on. I learned in the wedding planning process to limit the information I shared with my MIL and to not specifically ask for an opinion…

She sounds like a. .. . trip.  Yeah.

Who wouldn’t attend a wedding just because there’s a seating chart?  I’ve never been to a wedding without one.

@HeMadeMeWantTo:  That’s funny.  But I do kinda understand where she is coming from and let me tell you why… (though I think if you want a seating chart, do it!!)

My sister had a seating chart at her wedding and people were PISSED (I guess this is not the norm in our culture/family).  My mom was so upset and stressed by this.

So at my wedding…no seating chart, no problem.  lol.

 

Good luck w/ur FMIL.

that’s the dumbest thing ever.  You do not need to warn guests of a seating chart – I think most wedding it’s understood that’s how it will be!  If it’s not, cool added bonus? If somoene really has an issue with their seat, I’m sure they could always switch with someone no big deal and no one would ever know!

After thinking about this more, maybe you should warn people about it….because if someone doesn’t want to attend because you have a seating chart, that’s not the type of person I would want at my wedding anyway, so better to know ahead of time, ha! 🙂 🙂 🙂
