Wow, that’s great to have that done! I’m not doing seating charts but I have heard they are a beast to complete. I’m a May 24 bride, too, and still waiting to hear from a few stragglers…

How many people per table did you assign?

Just curious.

I suppose with only 47 people it can be really tricky to make sure the peole who need to stay away from each other are all figured out.  Ugg.  But congrats.  It’s nice to feel the weight lift.  And now one less thing to worry about, so you can enjoy your wedding!

Is it worth your brother being mad at you and/or ruining your relationship with him? I mean, how long is dinner anyway? Aren’t you going to be talking to your other guests during that time?

My sister went with her boyfriend to his cousins wedding. Her boyfriend was the best man. My sister was not seated next to him, he sat at the bridal party table. And it wasn’t a big deal. My sister didn’t read into it, she was explained this was going to happen the weekend she arrived to the event. No biggie. Hopefully people will take it into stride for your event. Do what is best for you. And if someone doesn’t like it-just say logistically to make the tables work that is what had to be arranged.

How old is your brother? Is he stomping his feet while he says all this? LOL

I think maybe you should talk to her and see what she says. Just explain that there isn’t any room at the head table and while you’d love for her to be there {LIE}, you understand if she doesn’t feel comfortable not sitting with him and you’ll see her after the wedding maybe {LIE}. If she gives you attitude, thump her in the nose and walk away. 🙂 That actually sounds fun!

We have to do seating charts soon, too! Still waiting on about 10 people though. Do you mind if I ask how long it took?

We actually have a similar situation. My sister is a bridesmaid and she is going through a divorce and now wants to bring her new boyfriend (she’s been dating about 3 weeks) to the wedding. Just who I want to sit near, right?

Have you thought about moving your brother away from the head table so that he can sit with his date? I know it sucks that he won’t be right next to you, but it might make for less of a fight, and should accomodate your space issue. I think this is basically the route we’re going to take.
