Seating Chart / Kids at the Reception Question
Posted 14 February 2007 - 01:40 PM
I'm having a really formal sit-down dinner at the reception. We're going all out with a 6 course meal and wine parings for each course. 65 guests will be dining at one (very) long table. I feel bad, but I don't want kids sitting at the table eating with us. (am I totally evil?) So my questions are..
1) How do I let the guests know where to sit? I mean, it is only one table, so table numbers wont work.
2) What do I do about the 16 (yikes!) kids ranging from 2-12 during dinner? After dinner I imagine they will all be out on the dance floor, I just need some ideas of what to do with them during dinner.
Any suggestions ?

I would say if its one table to have place cards for everyone.
But my only concern would be that it may be tough to have kids under 3/4 to be sitting by themselves(not next to a parent that can keep them under control)

But, I'm still having a hard time accepting it. Why do they have to bring their kids!!!!!!! (that was my 'But, I'M the BRIDE' vent)
Can you tell that I dont have kids?

There are 21 kids in my family, and i have to say none of them sit down & eat. Obviously you would have food for them, but i dont think any would mind not sitting during "dinner"

I'm going to set something up with the hotel's Kids Club. They will entertain the kids and feed them while their parents enjoy dinner. I also like the idea about playing on the beach!
I feel sooooo much better about everything. I was really worried that the parents would be mad or something.

great idea! I had two toddlers but they were not a problem.
