Assigned Seating..Necessary?

How necessary is assigned seating at a wedding? I really don’t want to do assigned seating for everyone (just reserve tables for the immediate family) (all parents are divorced, so one table per parent.. with their choice of peoples), but my mom is really against this decision.. part of my dilemma also is there is more than likely going to be at least 1-2 tables behind the bar, and back there you would not be able to see the wedding party etc… so I’d almost feel bad being like thanks for coming, you can sit back here… I’d probably put work people back there if I had to.. but still..

AND.. I don’t know where the 10 person tables and the 8 person tables will be set or how many of each I have.. so I would probably have to wait until Friday (if there is no wedding) when we set up to figure it all out… and I don’t know if I want to deal with that stress.. but if it’s ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY I will.. what do you think? Is assigned seating better?

roles for teenagers in wedding party?

I would really like to involve my half-siblings in my wedding party. They will be 14 and 16 at the time of the wedding. I don’t want to treat them differently from each other – should I make them both “junior” bridesmaid/groomsman, or full bridesmaid/groomsman? Every time I see a reference to junior anything the suggested age is up to 12 or up to 14, so they are at sort of an in-between age. Also, I am trying to think of ways to include them in more pre-wedding festivities. They won’t be able to come to the bachelor(ette) parties, can’t toast champagne in the limo (our mother would kill me), can’t come to the after party, etc. Any suggestions for things I can do to ensure they have some fun with this? Also, they will be the only people their age there, so do you think it will even be fun for them? I kind of wonder if I should even bother – if this would be more trouble than it’s worth. This question’s really really general. When I say “having fun” I mean with everything, from the planning to the shower to the reception. I’m happy to hear advice regarding any or all of these events.

Also, we do not really have it in the budget to let them bring dates – we are not even letting many friends our own age bring dates (except those engaged/married/in long-term relationships) – so could they enjoy the reception if they only have each other around and nobody else their own age? They are kinda at that “I’m too cool for you” age.

Thanks for all your answers so far!

What do you think of arranged seating? yes? no?

So I will have around 150-200 people at the wedding.

I was thinking of doing “arranged” seating with escort cards and all that. They would simply pick them up at a table and find the appropriate table number. I wouldn’t mind doing the work of deciding who goes where. We’re a younger couple, and I know who is friends, who isn’t, yada yada…

My fiance said I should skip it and let people sit wherever they want.

I get this idea, but… there are some people that I KNOW would feel more comfortable sitting next to a particular couple because that’s all they know. And if this particular couple arrives late, then the first couple would end up next to those they don’t know. I want everyone to be comfortable.

So… escort cards? Or let them pick and let things fall where they may?

Any stories of anyone getting stuck next to the weird Uncle instead of by your old friend from college? Don’t take the “work load” into thought… It’s really not that much work for me… I have MONTHS to prep, so it won’t stress me too much.

Wedding Etiquette: Step-Mother?

I’m not sure how to handle a particular situation involving step parents at my upcoming wedding.

I’m planning on giving a special something to the grooms mom & my mom, but I’m not sure what to do with my step-mom. She’s not really been a mother figure to me… she and my dad married when I had already left the house and honestly I don’t know her that well… but I don’t want to leave her out… but I don’t want our mothers to feel like I’m raising her up to their level either… It’s kinda awkward.

Thoughts??

How to word the RSVP card for the request of # and names of guests attending your wedding?

Our reply card is going to show that our guests can RSVP via phone or email by the requested date so they won’t be filling in the blanks and mailing it back, but I’d like to know how many will be attending and the names of the guests. I’m more concerned for those who the invitation is addressed to “and Guest”.

I’m more than certain that we should know who will be attending our wedding – for meal purposes, place card and seating purposes and overall to generally know who our guests are bringing as guests.

How do I go about wording that?

Thanks!

Wedding invitation RSVP delemma?

I’m getting married July 6th and we have received and RSVP back from an unknown party of people, the names lead me to believe it is a practical joke Norma Finklebaum and Barney Dorkles and kids Biff and Craggles. My fiancé suggested that it might be my sister who is mad at me for not declaring her maid of honor, and she has stated she is not coming to the wedding, but I sill sent her an invitation. I would ask her but she won’t talk to me We also gave a handful of blank invites to my fiancées grandma for his side of the family that would want to go, so there is a chance that these are actually real people, but my fiancé doesn’t recognize the name either Should I include these names in the seating arrangements? What would u do?

My boyfriend is talking about a big wedding and I hate the idea of that….help?

We’re not engaged yet, but it’s headed in that direction…..The thing is, when we get married, I’d prefer to just get married and not worry about all the fuss and planning. I think it’s more about the commitment made to each other than putting on a show for other people. I know lots of people think it’s romantic and sweet to have a big wedding, but I’d rather keep it simple and focused on us.

But I’ve been married before and he hasn’t, so I know that having a good marriage has nothing to do with the ceremony and everything to do with loving and respecting each other day to day. He knows that too, but I guess having never been married makes him want the big, romantic wedding.

So should I try and talk him into keeping it simple, or just go along with his wishes to make it everything he’s dreamed of?

Wedding food?! Help! Thank you!?

I want my wedding to be very elegant. I have not decided whether or not to hire a caterer or not. I want to save as much as possible, without having it be trashy. I want a buffet style, but I’m not sure what entrees, sides, etc to cook in order for them to be filling, cheap, yet not trashy. My aunt had baked spaghetti at her wedding. While it tasted very good, I want it to be classy. Any ideas?
