Luckily I haven’t had any complaints (though I also haven’t told many people where they’re sitting).  It is more challenging than I thought though, especially since I had to rearrange it 3 or 4 times in a few weeks due to RSVP changes.

Ah, the fun things you learn while wedding planning. 🙂  

And I see you’re twoish weeks away!!! How exciting!

O it was interesting! Luckilly Future Mother-In-Law did FI’s side of the family. They have too much drama for me to keep up with! I did have to deal with my cousins’ feuding with their parents and my entire family not liking other cousins. As well as friend drama! So and so doesn’t like this person and this person doesn’t like this person. Oh well it’s finished now and I don’t care if they complain! :]

I HATED the seating chart.  I feel like it never, ever would have been perfect no matter how much time I spent on it.  FMIL almost made me lose my mind, she was so difficult about it!

Yeah, in theory it sounds like a great run down with the Mr. about who likes who, etc, but I feel that in practice it will end up being my demise. LOL. There is no way  that I will keep 300-400 people all satisfied with their table assignment, but they can deal with it and eat their dinner while glaring at me if it makes them feel better 🙂

I’m using a system with different colored post-its (red for ‘trouble guests’ who have conflicts w/ someone, green for college friends, blue for lake friends, yellow for my family, orange for his, etc), and making a huge chart with all the names on it when we send out the invites. Then as they come in yes or no, we’ll move their family/group to a table on our final chart or stack them up in the no pile. I can’t think of any other way to manage that many people!

Ours actually turned out pretty well. I was mostly happy, although I think I could have moved one or two couples based on who they actually hung out with at the wedding. I had to have a few people check over the list, and it was kind of a compromise with a lot of people.
