- Wedding: September 2013
So I knew from the beginning I would have to do assigned seating because there’s family drama on both sides. The RSVP date is Aug 20th for my wedding, so I have not even received 50% of the responses yet. But I can’t believe all of the requests I’ve been getting. My mom is calling to tell me she already told so-and-so she is sitting with them, which I wasn’t expecting since it’s an older family member and I wasn’t going to put that family member close to our table (which will be near the loud dance floor). I’m having people tell me they “have to” sit with this person (who of course hasn’t even responded yet) or they absolutely can’t sit near this person…I already have headaches and I haven’t actually thought about the seating chart yet!! Any advice how to get through without losing my mind or harming a guest? No seating chart isn’t an option because the venue isn’t super big and we won’t have extra room for many extra tables/seats.
