I’ve never known an element of wedding planning to cause couples as much angst as working out the seating arrangements. Is it ok for Uncle Bob to be seated next to Aunty Sandra because they had a colossal falling out last Christmas. Should you put Cousin Simon on a table alone with your boss (who you’ve only invited out of a sense of duty and in hope of a pay rise) because they are both belligerent characters who will likely offend your other guests before the day is out!
Not to mention where to seat the guests who you didn’t even want to invite but Mummy Dearest has insisted you accommodate them or risk the threat of being cut off from the family inheritance!
It can all feel a little stressful and get temperatures rising. So in usual form we have thought of some handy pointers to help you plan your wedding or event seating a bit more peacefully!

Tip 1. Don’t. Okay okay. I know it’s harsh but if there is room to be flexible with your date, have a think about pushing your event back to allow time to plan. Planning without sufficient time means stress, lack of vendor availability, etc etc Obviously we know that life happens and sometimes there is …
Whilst British culture denotes that guests are quite polite and generally abide by our event rules (RSVP by this date, arrive at venue before 7pm etc.) our wedding guests from across the seas have proven to be ….erm….lets just say…less well behaved.
If you’re from West Africa, Asia and the Caribbean you will be all too familiar with the premise that an event is a community affair and that an invitation sent with a plus 1 can often translate to mean plus 5 with partners and children.
Don’t despair….Bumble Events has some hot tips to help you manage your guest list.
