Many couples getting ready for marriage think after the wedding you have a reception, and everyone just sits where they like. While this is one option, this is usually not how a reception is organized, unless only cake and punch are being served. With so many divorces and high stress jobs, people are often arguing or in fowl moods. What would happen if you had an Aunt Betty and Uncle Joe that bickered all the time, and your wedding reception is no different. Then you have a dear friend who you have not seen in years, coming clear across the country especially for your wedding. Without planning, your friend ends up at the same table as your Aunt and Uncle, only to have a miserable time being "stuck" between two people fighting. This is a common problem.

The hard truth is that you will never be able to please everyone at your reception. Besides, some people simply live to argue. Having problems with seating can be a huge headache for the bride and groom. Since everyone came to your wedding to show support, acceptance, and approval, you want them to have a wonderful time at both wedding and reception. With good planning, it is possible to create a seating plan that works.

The difficult part is that you will not know who all will be coming to your wedding until a week or less before the wedding. This means the seating plan cannot be done until just before the wedding, at which time you would rather be focusing on different things. Additionally, there will always be people that do not RSVP, just showing up. Keep in mind that you can only do the best you can do.

If you are working with a wedding coordinator or caterer, they can take over the responsibility of creating the seating plan. If you are doing this on your own, it may come down to you designating those who will sit at the bride and groom's table, reserving a table for the parents and grand parents, and then allowing all the other guests to find their own seat. A great way to get people up and moving around, trying out different tables, is to have a buffet set up. The main concern will be having adequate seating.

The bride and groom's table is usually a long, rectangular table decorated with beautiful flowers, with the bride sitting to the left of the groom. This table would also seat everyone in the wedding party to include the best man, groomsmen, maid of honor, and bride's maids.. If this seems too formal and stiff for your liking, when creating the seating plan, keep one or two seats open at every table so both the bride and groom can walk around and visit with everyone.
