The seating plan: it is an evolving and nightmare aspect to the wedding planning. I have been having a love-hate relationship with mine for about a year now. We finally sat down (no pun intended) and worked things out.
You have to tread delicately on certain aspects of the seating plan. Especially if family politics are involved.
Many venues will dictate what seating arrangements are possible. Chose the one that you feel your guests will be most comfortable in, and of course the one that gives them the best views of the Bride and Groom.
Most importantly, mix up the tables. Weddings are a fantastic opportunity to meet new people, and with the wine flowing, perhaps new romances.
