So we did our tentative wedding seating plan last night and I have to be honest - before we started I'd heard it was one of THE WORST parts of planning!
Now, to be fair my family live mostly overseas so I only had 20 or so guests to place compared to my fiance with his prolific family, so it wasn't too bad for me as I didn't have too much invested in where Auntie X was sitting, but even so, we got it done in about an hour! Boom baby, done and dusted.
Maybe it was also easier because we have big long tables so rather than needing to find equal groups of people that fit together, we could put unevenly sized groups together as long as there is a 'buffer' person who is reasonably social or easy going to meld one group into the next.
Anyway it made me curious. What had you heard was a nightmare that ended up being easy peasy lemon squeezy? And what did you hear was lovely and a breeze that ended up being difficult difficult lemon difficult?
