Hello party people. I haven't been posting lately because my wedding is too effing close and I'm busier than a bee. Or something like that. Anyway, 19 days left and now it's time for the seating chart. I have found the key: Seating Arrangement, which is seating chart software! You can put in your guest list, design the floor plan and play around with the seating arrangements and people pairings! It's pretty cool, must say. You can import your guest list and your floor plan too. One of the neater features is that you can classify people by social group or age to help remind you what people you think should sit together. So, I split the groups into college friends, high school friends and post-high school friends to make things easier.
Now that the science of seating people is squared away, what to do with people who don't know anyone? That's a completely different challenge that we'll leave to another day.
Speaking of awkward, check this out. It's hilarious.
