Table plan issues
I think I'm just feeling a bit down after the dreaded table plan. I thought about not having one but then realised I could not have some of H2Bs friends near Mt (very religious) family, he has already been telling us what he is planning on saying loudly during dinner to amuse himself. H2B says he still has to come and we have sat another friend near who can 'control' him!
So we have tge table plan sorted. I asked FMIL for help with their family but she said just put anyone with anyone. H2B didn't know of any rifts so we just sorted it. I then show her what we did and she starts saying a can't sit near b. And why have you sat c with d. Why didn't you just ask me!!! So now I'm going to do it with her.
Also speaking of his family, they were very adamant about who was coming from their family. Mine is large (30 close, aunts, uncles, first cousins) they have 9. No judgement it's just how families are. But they have pulled random members out of nowhere. H2B hasn't even met some. Anyway that is all done and everyone is invited. We had to chase all of his family for RSVPs, do you even want to come!!! Why funny people respond!
So back to the table plan, I've been writing out name cards and just had a few of his family left to write. But wasn't sure of surnames, turns out H2B and FMIL don't know the surnames if these family members either and asked if I could rewrite them all again with just first name. My issue is I only have so many name cards and we have people with the same name coming.
Sorry I don't know what I'm asking (if anythi) it just feels good to get it off my chest!
