Let them come. You sound like you are stressing way too much.

yorkshirerose :  No two weddings are the same, but speaking personally, I’d probably let her come, because you say they always make an effort and her husband will be there. A lot would depend on point #1, physically fitting her in. (I wouldn’t do it if she didn’t have a track record of making an effort)

But then, I’m pretty efficient at payments/phone calls so your point #2 wouldn’t bother me much.

Yes I would definitely let her come.

Forgive me, but do people actually get their seating charts professionally done from a printer? Never heard this before 😊

Weddings shouldn’t be stressful. Let the guest come, but try to relax and enjoy the process 😊

I’d say let them come, on the day of, so many things will be going on and I’m sure they will be filled with happiness. If they feel uncomfortable with the seating, I’m sure they will find a way to make themselves comfortable, or they might not even be bothered at all!

So this is someone you originally invited? If so, I’m not sure what this has to do with the extra money. You would have had her there either way if she had said yes. There is not even any issue with the caterer adding a plate. The gracious thing to do is to include her.

yorkshirerose :   Let the person come.  Could you make two tables of five?  How big are the tables?
