I'm slacking & I'm not even busy.

Lately, I've been feeling like I have nothing to post. Which makes me sadder than one would assume.

Before Sunday's engagement shoot [which was absolutely successful & I can't wait to see the results in 3-4 weeks], I worked on our seating charts... for real.

A few months ago, I tried and just really felt like I failed.

Now, I know what you're thinking! It's so early to do those pesky seating charts! You don't know who will come and who will decline! It's a waste of time!

However, I kindly disagree. This is why:

When I can take my guest list and put each name to a table & a table name it really helps me envision how the reception will go. I feel like putting certain people together or apart, close to the dance floor or further away, or near the bar or on the other side of the room -- really puts our reception in perspective for me. I think the seating chart can make or break the reception. I really want people to feel comfortable, know the people they're sitting with and genuinely enjoy their time. I want to get it right.

I don't know how I feel about putting people who don't know each other at the same table. But some couples won't know anyone other than the person they came with. So what am I to do? They cannot sit alone... so I'm torn.

I know most people wait & wait [& wait some more] to do these seat assignments. But in the effort of over-planning... I thoroughly enjoy practicing. Plus, The Knot's seating chart makes it easy to set-up mock charts and change them as many times as necessary.

Tomorrow I plan on posting about our outfits for yesterday's photo shoot. And, toward the end of the week I'll share with you what I recently mailed out to all my bridesmaids! [After all, I have to give the post office some time to get it to them before I post all about it and ruin my surprise].
