    DeniseSecunda :  Jesus H Christ! It’s HER EVENT!!! If she doesn’t want to offer seating she doesn’t have to! That doesn’t make her wrong. It just means she’s not doing things the way others would. 

    Everyone is entitled to do whatever the hell they want, it’s a free country! I’m sure she’ll note on the invite that you’re more than welcome to bring a chair if you need to. As I said in my previous post, this would NOT be a big deal in some circles, mine included. Apparently in others it would be. You seriously are expecting her to admit that she’s “wrong”??? What in the actual fuck. 

    ETA: I’ve had cookouts with 20+ people and maybe half a dozen to 10 chairs. Guess what? Nobody died. Pretty sure no one even noticed.

    brideandblue :  It always works that way, lol. Hopefully you can find a happy medium and accommodate everyone while still sticking to the budget. You mentioned chairs from church, would they maybe have a couple tables too? If not, they’re fairly inexpensive to rent. When I got married it was like $8 a table for something basic (ie: ugly) but you can get some cute disposable tablecloths maybe?

    Honestly if you get chairs, you don’t need them for every person.  Just a few for old people

    I love BBQ food but it is inherently messy. How are people going to eat all of this without tables/chairs? I would go back to sandwiches, or serve other types of food that are easy to eat standing up. (Burgers, chicken skewers, hot dogs, fruit on a stick, corn on the cob, etc)

    brideandblue :  perfect and I’m glad you’ve gone more substantial than sandwiches for a dinner.

    I do agree with the PP that a cheese board is a nicer idea than chips and dip. Another idea on a fancy take on chips and dip would be Turkish bread and dips with Mediterranean pickles, olives,  quality olive oil and zaatar. That can all be assembled before hand and you can just chuck on the cut up bread before serving.

    DeniseSecunda :  I was unaware that not renting chairs for a BBQ was deemed unethical 😂 

    I’ll step off my soapbox if you dismount your high horse, deal?
