      are you doing a dinner where you have to have everyone's entree choices ahead of time? If not, then I don't know that I'd bother with it. that's the only reason I'm doing place cards. the table numbers are more because we have to be sure his mother and his father (if his father goes) are separated lol but I think we'll be putting all of the place cards/table assignments on one table and let everyone come pick them up.

      I still haven't decided if I'm doing table numbers and place settings....with only 40 people, I don't know if it's needed.  Seems like extra work I won't want to end up doing, haha.

      Nope, we are doing a buffet style dinner.  That's what I was thinking- it's not really necessary- we don't have people that CANNOT sit next to each other and by the wedding everyone will have been there for at least 2 days, so you would hope that they can figure out 6 or 8 other people to sit next to, lol.

        We're doing a buffet-style dinner, too, and I *really* wanted to avoid doing a seating chart and placecards. But since we're having 150 guests, our coordinator highly recommends one, so that people find their seats quickly. I think she might be right.

        Sadly enough, she is probably right- 150 people is probably too many to have a free for all, lol.  I only have 40 people- 14 of which are in the wedding party so the rest will have 4 tables to choose from- first come first serve, lol.

          I know, I know... sigh :-). With 3+ months to go, I'm definitely looking for ways to make things easier for myself! But making things easier for 150 guests should probably be the priority ;-).

          Have you seen any of the templates you can use to assign seating?? Those might be helpful. 

           

          Here is one I saw:

            Yes, templates are really helpful. I think the hard part is the sometimes "political" decisionmaking while assigning the seats :-). Thanks for sharing the link!
