haha 🙂 I’m not very passive agressive, but then I’m not planning seating yet…

You did however just add something to my, “Crap I need to think about this list.” Being where to sit people in relationship to the bar. I have people that are avidly against alcohol, I have people that I need to seat away from the bar so that they don’t drink the whole tab…

Anyways… I will admit there are people on my list that I don’t really care where they sit because they are there for my parents… They’ll sit wherever there is a hole in the seating plan.

I abandoned the arranged sitting to save myself the drama. They can sort it out for themselves. First come, first-serve. lol

Ha. I can totally see myself doing this when we get there. My mom (currently on my sh*t list) who doesn’t drink will be seated next to FI’s irritating, drunk, and super loud friends. My mom’s friends will all be at a delightful (and completely full) table on the other side of the room, as far away from her as possible :). 

Just kidding…sort of.

I have drunks.  I also have coworkers.  I also have drunks who are coworkers.  But I can’t mix my regular drunks with my coworker drunks.  Different kind of drunks.  Oh and I have the non-drinkers that will tsk-tsk the drunks. 

I’m going with the Party Drunks in the front by the bar, with my family next to them.

Then the Work Drunks in the back on the bar side, then the work non-Drunks next level over to separate the Work-Drunks from the non-drinking families. 

Make sense?

Drunk —-> Less Drunk —-> Not Drinking

Drunk —-> Less Drunk —-> Not Drinking

Drunk —-> Less Drunk —-> Not Drinking

Although I havent even sent invitations out yet, i did a mock up seating chart with the people on my guest list that I figure will for sure come and just went the route of seating people with the ones they know or with their families.  So fi’s cousins who are sisters, sit together with their spouses.  my bp sit with their families and close friends, my family will sit together, etc.  It so happens that the heavy drinkers are seated together (mainly fi’s family) and the non-drinkers are together (my family).
