Wedding Reception: Creating the Perfect Seating Chart

No one wants to end up sitting alone at a wedding reception, shut out of the conversations around them. If your guests are at ease, the party will thrive.

i'm having an extreemly hard time with the seating chart. the problem is mostly revolving around my mother, basically she wants to sit with all of her friends that she has invited to the wedding! and she has allready promised all of her friends she would be sitting with them! she doesn't understand that family sits closest to the bride and groom and friends sit in the back, so now i don't know what to do. i can't put her in the front with all of her friends becuase that would be rude to my other guests but i can't put her in the back with her friends either because her and my father are paying for the wedding. does anyone have any possible solutions to this problem?!?!?!

I'm glad I came across this. I have been trying to figure out how in the world to display my seating and whether I should assign seats or just tables

I think thats a little selfish of your mom, regardless of who is paying for the wedding it is one of the most special days in your life. She can just explain to her friends that in the excitement of having them share in your special day, she forgot that she should be seated with you. If she still refuses, then perhaps she can sit with you through toast, etc and then move to the table with her friends, wherever that may be.
