@Meandhim

That's a good idea too. I am going to drop into the dollar store after work today to see if I can find anything. Then if not there I will go to Walmart. Not many choices here in Wainwright haha

@kcole123 I've seen tags in the crafty section of the dollar store here....I would sit them according who would get along together... For me my tables will be a bit mixed up...my FI only has 4 family members going and I have 12...so I'm just going to seat them kinda by who I think everyone would enjoy sitting with... We will see how that goes.... I do suggest telling them where to sit tho because I went to a wedding in Jamaica where they didn't and 1 guy was left without a seat! .... Resorts fault... But harder for them to screw up if they have name cards/ tags they have to put down

@Meandhim

Yeah the more I think about it, the more I should have seating arrangements for guests.

 

I am here at work now and just finished organizing the seating hahaha in two minutes. It seems to be ok and that people will be happy with where they are sitting. It's only for a meal anyway.

You are so on the ball. I wasn't even thinking about table numbers and stuff. I don't know if I want to mess with that now to be honest. I might just get people to sit wherever. I wouldn't even know how to organize the seating.  awwwwww what to do? Maybe I can do place cards and just organize the seating that way. This way people are fighting over seats on the boat. At least then it's all laid out for them. I won't do table numbers I can just put names on cards and put them on the tables. What can I use to hold the name cards though? Something cheap and that won't take up no room cause to be honest I don't know if I have much room left.

2 weeks today and we leave (leave April 13th) and I still feel like I have so much to do. When do you fly out? @pddcmc.

I'm only doing "special" table numbers because I'm going to have them as my "pop" of color. I didn't want to spend money on beautiful flowers that I won't even be able to enjoy very much afterwards. 

 

We leave the 15th! I only have FOUR days of patient care left! WOOO HOOOO 

 

So, have you started packing things? We still haven't... (mini-panic!)

 

 

My fear for you is on the boat placards would fly away or knock over. I wasn't on a boat and the wind knocked my frames over haha. It may be easier to do a seating chart but then if you don't do table numbers they wouldn't know which was which. Hmmmm let me think about it.

I hope mine don't get blown over. Was your reception on the beach? Ours is on the deck, so I am banking on the winds being a little more calm. I hope Maira (WC) will have something up her sleeve if it's too windy for my table numbers.

 

 

@calgarybride2015

I am here on google now and pinterest trying to find ideas that are simple and cheap. And of course panicking at the same time..hahaha Why do I procrastinate so much?  I know you will probably come up with something. You have all the great ideas. No pressure....lol

Um. We STILL have a lot to do! My FI was working on the Welcome Letters on an adobe program (and this may be a little biased, but they looked FANTASTIC).. except his computer DIED. Just dead. done. zip. .... now he has to start all over! Oh, and does he have a shirt yet?? NO. AHHHHHH this wonderful man is going to give me a heart attack!

What about something like this? I pinned it ages ago, but am going with a different idea.

It's really similar to what @Meandhim posted.

 

 

Do I sit family vs family? Do I sit the parents together and bridal party at their own table?

We are doing family tables and friend tables. I'm not having a big bridal party (MOH and Best Man) so that made it a little easier for seating arrangements.

Beautiful. I love that it's right there on the beachside. The Corona bottle idea is really cute :)

wow! that deck is beautiful! :) but it does look like it would be a little windy, hopefully not enough to knock down the numbers. 

 

Does anyone know that the etiquette is for seating people? Originally, I wanted to sit all the bridal party with us but then i felt bad for their dates, especially for one of my MOH's because he literally doesn't know anyone else. They're the only ones coming from Argentina but my MOH visited me here in Canada last year so she met my friends here. What to do?

I'm not entirely sure of etiquette, but I have seen it both ways - bridal party and B&G at a king table as well as sweetheart table and bridal party with their dates. My instinct would be to have your bridal party seated with their dates since a few of them don't know anyone else - that can be a little uncomfortable if the person is shy.

I guess I can just write "Plan to get a tan!" on the tags and use the seashell?  :mellow:
(...ya know, because the cup will be used while at the beach/pool and inside is the aloe &  lip balm (plus a few other things) ?)


Are both of these too plain?? Do you like either one better than the other? I'm losing creativity...

I was thinking about getting her some kind of bangle(s) to wear with it? I think the neckline is too high for a necklace and her ears aren't pierced anymore.
