I haven't really blogged about what we're doing in terms of seating for our 300 guests. For the most part, the people we're inviting know both of us and know each other, so I really wasn't concerned about having assigned seating. I don't think there will be any awkwardness, and it saves me a lot of time! :)
I did, however, want our families to all be able to sit together and near the head table and cake table, so that they'd all have seats and they'd be able to see. That, and I found these adorable eyelet place cards at Big Lots:
They were $2 for a package of 40 and they matched the garter I found there!
I'm going to do place cards for all of our family members, and I made signs that will be at each of the reserved tables:
I'm in love with the textured paper!
I'll probably use something similar to these photo holders I made for David's brother and SIL's rehearsal dinner last July for the signs:
Just imagine it painted black with pink ribbon
Since we pretty much know which family members will be attending our wedding, I'm hoping that this is another project I can get done ahead of time. Those are my favorite!
How are you handling the seating of your guests?
