my apologies for the lack of posting later, but we've been incredibly busy: in the last few weeks, kevin and i have finished up countless papers and tests, kevin graduated with his masters degree!!, kevin's parents + his aunt and uncle + my parents and sister all came to tucson to visit, and i moved out of my apartment. all of this while trying to enjoy our last few weeks together in tucson before i say adios for the summer and head to the dominican republic.
anyways, enough about our busy lives. today's post is about place cards and assigned seating. it's one of the topics that my dear fiancé and i have debated against each other since november. i like place cards. and assigned seating. perhaps it's my obsessive need for order and to be prepared, but as a wedding guest, i like going to a wedding and knowing where i'm supposed to sit. i trust the bride and groom to be intentional about where each guest sits, and i look forward to sitting near both people i already know and people i haven't yet met. kevin, on the other hand, wants people to sit at whichever table they want. i'm not necessarily opposed to this idea.
okay, so, a little confession: one of the reasons why i'm so into assigned seating is because i love the idea of designing and making my own place cards. it's not really so much about the assigned seating; it's just that i like arts and crafts, and want to add those personal touches to our wedding whenever i can. kevin blames martha stewart for giving me all these ideas that i would have never had otherwise (see the upcoming Fiance Friday post for more on his sentiments).
what do you all think? as a guest, how do you feel about assigned seating?
until then, some cute place card ideas:
