I hope I convey this correctly, but I need some ideas, tips, hints…etc.
I didn’t plan on having assigned seating for 150 people. I originally was going to have 2 tables for my wedding parties and their SO, and 3 tables for family (all assigned with place cards). I was going to leave the rest to open seating. Since I have read several posts about awkwardness, I am rethinking my strategy.
When I send out invitations, is it rude to ask people to please return their RSVPs with the adult names all listed out (rather than the # of people) so I can make place cards for everyone? I am just trying to figure out how to assign seating if I have a guest say they are attending with “1” and I don’t have a clue who “1” is.
I know this probably sounds goofy, but I am stumped without any caffeine in me.

@da3lyn: I guess you could do it that way. We just asked whoever was bringing a +1 how to spell their dates name. We really didnt have many +1s that we didnt know. Also, we did M _____________ so people would fill in their names either Mr. and mrs. so and so or they would put Ms. so and so and dates name. We didnt specifically ask people to put their names, but when people see the M________ they tend to do it that way. We did have to call a few guests to get their dates names, but it wasnt weird at alL!

You should be able to get their names from the M__________ spot. Most of our guests filled that out correctly. There were only a few that I called or emailed to get their guests name which wasn’t a big deal at all.

Just like Pitbulllover, I left the M______________ for the guests to fill in their names. If there is a guest, and they don’t put it on the RSVP card, I’ll try and do some calling around to get names.

Good golly, Miss Molly…I feel like a ruh-tard this morning. That makes perfect sense now. I was looking at invitations while waiting for a response and now I see that option. Thank you all for pointing out the obvious I missed… tee hee hee
