I think I may have conquered our seating chart……after the 4th try! – and 5 total hours!
I started off by grouping together people who would like to sit together. Then broke it down and rearranged a little bit to make it more feasible. We are doing a head table but everyone is allowed to sit with their spouses/SOs/guests and we won’t be facing everyone – it will be one long table w/ seating on every side.
I’m 90% happy with it – but gave a list to my mother to see what she can work out – sometimes it better to have a fresh perspective.
How stressful was the seating chart for everyone else?

I had it conquered. So I thought 🙁 Give it to Future Mother-In-Law for review and she changed all but 4 of the 19 tables. Including rearranging tables that only had my guests sitting at them. So now I have to have Fiance send it back with me revising most of the tables back to their original configuration.
There were 3 out of 19 tables that I asked her not to change, she changed every single one … so unfortunately, whether she likes it or not, I’ll be fighting tooth and nail to have those tables go back to the way I had them when I sent her the list.

@awakemysoul: I am so glad the FIs family only takes up 3 out of the 16 tables!! There are exactly 30 of his family members coming so they fit perfectly in 3 tables!! FMIL won’t be looking at the seating chart – but she is fabulous lady so she would never change it on me!

The seating chart was awful! First I did it, then hubby did it, then I redid it. And then I decided I didn’t care if people weren’t happy where they sat, I couldn’t help it!
Congrats on getting it done!

Hahhahahahahaa or maybe it should be….. AGGHHHHHHHHH?
I had the whole seating chart figured out and then……
3 more people decided to RSVP “Yes” 2 weeks later
We met w/ the venue coordinator and she tells us that the max per table is 9 — ummm you told us 10 originally.
Now I have to do the whole damn thing over again!!!!!
I jinxed myself
