Seating Charts…

Seating charts are the Devils work. 
Before you’ve done one, you think to yourself, how hard could this be? You put people at a table, there’s a table maximum, and you move to the next. 

Wrong. 

It’s hard. It’s especially hard if your parents get involved and tell you who can sit with who and who can’t. 

It’s EVEN HARDER if you come from an Italian family that is in the middle of a disagreement. 

Here’s what happens…
You get X number of tables and those tables usually sit 8-12 people, depending on venue and table size. That’s cool… until you put the people who CAN sit together at one table and get tables of 7 or 13… and get no groups that can fill in those gaps, or you get groups that will disown you if separate them. 

In the event that your only issue is fitting people at a table and not taking into account who they are and are not speaking to at the moment, consider yourself super lucky. 

I will tell you this, you will be so grateful for people who RSVP alone. These are the ones you will use to plug up the holes. They’re life savers. And anyone brave enough to go to a wedding alone will be able to hold their own at any table you sit them at. 

Take a deep breath, have some wine, not too much because the seating chart does have to make sense, and work it out on paper. 

It will eventually workout, hopefully before the wedding. Much love and good luck ladies and gentlemen,
