    We had 75 guests and it took us about 2-3 hours. We did it over several days though and kept going back to make changes.

    I’ve made a mock seating chart.. of all our 192 guests invited.. then when we start getting RSVP’s I’ll take people away & combine tables if necessary. When I did the mock chart it took less than hour.. it wasn’t bad at all. Do it in pencil.. I did a lot of erasing.

    I used the knot’s seating chart program but it still took me forever. Ugh. And then of course I had to run it by my mom and Mother-In-Law and make more changes…

    We had 230 guests and it took us maybe 2 hours total.  And that was only because I had to call my dad to figure out what to do with his family since not everyone gets along super well.

    Well I’ve been stressing about mine for the 8.5 months that we’ve been engaged if that makes you feel any better. I’m anticipating between 1 and 2 hours, depending on how much our moms are helping vs chatting. 🙂

    We had 32 people to seat, and that dang seating plan was the single biggest headache of the entire wedding planning process. We went through at least 5 versions, and spent even more hours rolling it over in our heads. With that size group and one large table to seat everyone, it was essential to get the right flow of people on all sides.
