      How about doing a bride an groom only table.That way you get some private time and you can watch the aggrevating people move on someone else x

        i agree, the only thing you can do without hurting anyone's feelings is have a sweetheart table.

            Ooooo...I like this idea because we were wondering the same thing. They will only let us have a head table of 6...if we all face each other....which is our whole wedding party. I was worried about people feeling left out because of backs being to them!

            As for the annoying ones....I have a couple of them too.....one in particular who we cannot sit by herself. So we are going to put her with her immediate family and keep that a smaller table. We have odd numbers at this point, so that is what my reasoning will be if anyone asks...which I am sure they won't, but just in case.

              Currently most resorts are offering round tables but I think I am going to ask mine about a single straight table so everyone can sit together. With 10-15 people that would be much more intimate in my opinion.

                I know what you mean. My in laws are separated and have not seen each other in about 3 years and at that time it was not so amicable between them.........
                I hope they behave themselves at the wedding.
                I am going to have them sit separately at the reception- my mom with his dad, and my dad with his mom,. But at the wedding, they have to sit together right?

                  There are only 13 of us and I asked my resort to give us one large round table. I think that is going to work really well for us.

                    We threw a seating chart out the window. We had 50 people and figured people could sit themselves and be adults. It worked out perfect.
                    And I mean..people are only sitting for an hour, 2 max...why stress yourself with worrying about where everyone is sitting?
                    Just my 2 cents, I know this will not work for everyone but it worked great with our group and it was nice for me to not have the extra work.
