Alright I guess I’m going with table seating! You all have been very helpful.
I feel like I’m doing this wedding planning by myself. Too bad I couldn’t do a destination wedding.
You know what my Father-In-Law gave me for guest list? A bunch of lined papers with names of people I don’t know and I can’t even read his writing. I guess what I’m going to do is make a bunch of invitations and just give them to him to do. I almost feel like I don’t even care who comes as long as there is 200, so much stress for one day!

depending how many people you have, this could work.
i went to a cocktail reception with 50 people. there were 4 tables with chairs, some high tops, and benches. in was in a room that lead out to a courtyard.
we mostly stood in the courtyard area around a hightop except when we had to get food from the one room.
it worked for this wedding.
i have never been to another wedding where this would have worked.

Ok, so I’ve been going back and forth with whether or not I want assigned seating. Of course a huge part of me says it’s easier not too, and since I have a smallish group, under 65, it shouldn’t be a problem. When I attend holiday parties or business events with hundreds of people, there are never any assigned seats. Why are weddings different?
We are having a buffet dinner and I intend to have at least 2 extra tables to accomadate people who want to sit toghether that might not have room at a particular table. My biggest concern is how to release the tables to go up to the buffet. If I number the tables, everyone will rush the lower numbered tables. If I give them themed type of labels, no one will know which tables will go first. But I can’t come up with a cute, appropriate theme for the table “numbering.” I’m still deciding what I want to do though.
