    Do you think there is any point to having place cards/arranged seating?  What are you doing, or what did you do? 

    Thanks!

    I'm not doing a seating plan. I am getting married in 3 weeks with 32 people attending also. I asked for a U-shaped table at Calabash with everyone sitting on the outside so we could all see each other. I did not want to deal with a seating chart & kinda hard to anyway with a U-shape. There are no separate table numbers. We are just putting some "reserved seating for family" place cards & all the friends can fill in the rest.

        Thanks ladies for your responses! I sent STD along with an informal invite just to get a feel for who and how many would be interested. I'm surprised to learn that its like pulling teeth. Most feels like its "too soon to tell". It's so....frustrating! Any advice??

        @1stmarriage we are getting married July 26 2014 at the Suites and we sent our STD in March just to give everyone a heads up, it was like pulling teeth to get people to contact our travel agent but we recently sent out a reminder to put their deposit down with our travel agent before the prices increase and we had a lot of people contact her. We are sending out our formal invitations the end of July to give everyone enough time but it seems like they need a lot of "reminding" ;)

            Thanks Ally, I thought there was something unusual with my planning! I feel a little better now..thank you!! We're you able to find an agent that would allow air and hotel payments to be made? It seems that no one allows installment payments for both.

              Hi Ladies! I just returned and I wanted to warn future brides--- Please DO NOT trust DigiPix (resort photographer) with photographing your special day. We hired Misha Earle and she was fab! But the resort photographer did take pictures, when we went to view them they were TERRIBLE! we didnt even get the 12 that were included because they were THAT bad. Please please invest in an outside photographer so you have pretty pictures of your special day!

                  Just wondering - has anybody tried to bring their own Minister or Judge/Officiant to marry them? My Uncle is a judge and he's coming to the wedding so I think it'd be more special if he were able to marry us legally. I'm sure there's some certifications or something he'd have to look into, and I've inquired with the resort but haven't heard back just yet so I thought I'd check with you ladies!
