How small is small? We had a sweetheart table. We had 42 guests and assigned tables for our guests. I prefer seating charts and we had several guests tell us they loved who I placed them with at their tables. Even with a small wedding not everyone knew each other and we didn’t want couples, etc. to be split up since some tables seated four and others 6. Even if you only had 10 guests a placecard would be nice. 

Vlog? Negative.

For 200 I’d do assigned seats for sure. Otherwise I’d expect chaos.

Assigned seats for 200. It is the only way to go. You can always assign guests to tables and not assign individual seats, but open seating for 200 is a big mistake.

Vlog? Not sure what you mean by “different ways of doing wedding stuff and how to deal with thing ect. ”   If you’re talking about a wedding website where you list the area hotels, directions to the venue, etc… that is fantastic and always helpful. If you’re just going to write up random wedding traditions or what-not, I’d say No Thanks. I can always google that if I feel some driving urge.

Horseradish:  Vlogs are video blogs.

livelaughlove94:  I think a seating plan is absolutey necessary. Without one, you end up with a party of 4 unable to find 4 seats together and having to sit at two different tables. I have also seen a single seat open at 4 different tables and the whole family spit up.

You can just bump your previous thread about vlogs if you didn’t get the reponses you want.

livelaughlove94:  Are seating charts comon where you are from?  We regularly have 200+ weddings where I’m from and I have been to one wedding that had a seating chart out of the 5-6 weddings per I have attended every year since the age of 19.  So many Bees say seating charts are a 100% must, but where I’m from they would be considered rude because you are telling a grown adult where to sit. 

As for the vlog, it would really depend on what it was about.   I would say crafting would be much more useful than how to find a vender.

1. 200 people isn’t even close to a small wedding, you definitely need a seating chart.

2. I wouldn’t. I find most videos people post annoying and would much rather read information. Especially when it appears the information you intend to post would be common sense to most..

julies1949:  I know what a vlog is. I am still confused on exactly what the OP wishes to include as her content.

You do not have to do seats, but I think table assignments are a necessity.  FYI, if you do not do table assignments, you will need at least 10% extra seats, because people will not fit in exactly where seats are.  And it will be like the HS cafeteria, with people wandering around looking for seats.  I think assigning tables is more important than favors or even centerpeices.

Assigning guests to a table is very typical here and I would expect that especially with 200 guests.

I would do a seating plan for sure! I’m doing one for my 100 guest wedding. The wedding I went to with open seating a few years ago was a disaster and my mom wanted to leave right after dinner.

Horseradish: I apologize.  I guess I misunderstood you. There is no writing on  a vlog.

If you’re just going to write up random wedding traditions or what-not, I’d say No Thanks.

At the very least I believe you need table assignments. Less chaotic for everyone involved, especially for 200 people.
