    If you aren’t super worried about the seating chart yourself, give her a sheet with the must have seating- friends at one table, and who you want at the head table, and ask her to get back to you when she has the rest figured out.  Saves you some work and lets her have the finals say too.  If not hang in there, be patient and remember that it will all be worth it on the big day.

    LOL I totally was NOT expecting you to say at your mother.

    My daughter finished hers in like 10 minutes with an maniacal laugh.

    I’m slightly frightened.

    After I did mine I didn’t tell anyone who they were sitting with. If they asked, I would just say that I was still finishing the final touches, or that I didn’t remember. Just having my husband beside me wanting to move everyone around was stressful enough, I did not need 80 people telling me who they wanted to sit with lol. I was really good with putting people together if they knew each other, but sometimes it got difficult. I didn’t hear any complaints on the big day, so it was all good 🙂

    I’d put together your seating chart according to how you want it, then hand it over to your mom to make any necessary changes. That way she’s not saddled with the full responsibility of organizing the entire seating chart, but she can move certain people around based on family feuds. 

    I did table assignments for our 49 guests and it was pretty easy. No real drama to speak of, just 2 hiccups that were quickly addressed. 

    Good luck!!
