Honestly, most of my wedding has been DIY and I have done all my vendors and everything I haven't had a planner. Its been great.. a little stressful when things don't go right but thats life. Our wedding is 4 months away BUT its a destination wedding so We just sent out our wedding invited to give everyone ample time to make travel and lodging arrangements. We are starting to get RSVPs back so FH and I have decided to start working up preliminary seating charts because most of the people coming are family only. We have a 100 people on the Guest list but we both come from large families. Nothing in this wedding has given me more anxiety than seating charts! Even just looking at it makes me anxious (part of the reason why I want to start planning a head). How did you decide to seat your guests and how did you decide where to place them in proximity to you? Just asa break down this is how our wedding list goes:
My immediate family of brothers and sisters and nieces and nephews, My aunts and uncles and cousins, FH has no siblings so all his family is aunts and uncles and cousins, family friends of my family and family friends of his family. The only friends going to our wedding are in the wedding party and we have a separate table for there plus ones. Hope this little insight will help. Reception area is a big square barn and we were thinking we will have a wedding party table and a separate table for him and I to sit at but thats were we stand now.
