Have open seating, then you don’t have to stress about it. This is what I am doing. We are having a buffet though, with a served dinner that could be kind of tricky.

Just remember after the meal people can move around and sit at other tables, they aren’t stuck in one seat all night.

If I had a group of 12 people that were friends I’d split them in half and make them socialize with 4 other people their age. Don’t stress too much, people are only really stuck in their seats during dinner. They’ll roam around after that.

Oh, I am stressed out about this (also plated, and required by the caterer/venue to have assigned seating finished by the week before!)

 

Just call people. You need to know, and once you know, life will be so much easier!

eesh I’m having the same issues!! in once case, FI’s aunt and uncle (who have three grown children, 2 of which were included on their invite) confused the sheat outta me. “3 respond yes, 2 chicken 1 haddock”.  Okay cool – is that 3rd their child Sue or Joe?! No calling them – they don’t really talk to us. I also just had almost an entire table reply no, so now I have ONE couple to stuff somewhere else. I, too, cannot do open seating. At some point I think I might just say screw it, too bad for them. lol.

@sorrycharlie:🙂 IN the end people WILL reseat themselves, probably, and it will work out.

And if it doesn’t have someone else in charge during the wedding day (not you).

 

This is the worst part of the planning for me. Sigh.

 

You can do it!
