Draw up your seating plan

Head table for the newly weds and families

Sorting out your seating plan depends on the guests who will attend your wedding. It might sound a very complicated task for weds to-be as it requires tact and good knowledge of the guests: the ones they like and the ones they don't get on with. This is why some couples prefer unassigned seating, where guests will be happy to sit where they please, taking good care to tell them where family table positions are located. However this solution might seem a little too risky if it is a large event. So, if you want to store a seating arrangement, try to put people according to their age group, but pay attention to small details such as older members who don't like to be regarded as such and teenagers who don't want to be seated with young children.To help relieve some of the stress, you should try to put families together, work colleagues together, group of old friends...If you need some help to assign pleasant dining companions to all your guests, don't hesitate to ask your parents, since they are most likely to know sensitive family issues, they will help you to figure out compatible people and long lasting enemies in order to avoid miserable experience for them on your Big Day.
