You’ve toured the venue, tasted the food, selected the entertainment and said yes to the dress – the planning + design process has been everything you dreamed it would be, but now it’s time to get to the nitty gritty logistics of it all. We’re talking about the overwhelming task of organizing your seating chart. You’re probably donning all of your hats – hostess, diplomat, maybe even matchmaker – sitting on the floor amidst pencil shavings and sticky notes, wondering where to even begin! Well invite your MOH to take part in the fun, pull out the Pinot Grig and relax knowing that it doesn’t have to be a chore. We’ve invited Morgan Miller, owner of Spreading Lovely, to help you navigate through it all! Read on for some of the most common seating chart questions answered.

Morgan ends with a great point: “Remember, it is difficult to please everyone and ultimately your guests are there to celebrate your love and show support for your marriage. So don’t overthink it!” Now who’s ready to take on this task?
