Grammar

Ashleigh, on February 8, 2018 at 10:10 Posted in Wedding reception 0 14
Time to order our seating chart! I need some help with grammar though. We are having a short cocktail reception, so we don't really want everyone sitting around at tables.....
If you need a place to rest your feet,

See below to find a seat....

Friends
Table 1-3

Family
Table 4-10

Is "friends" ok without an apostrophe?
Should I make table plural? Tables or Table's?
My brain is mush this week.

    Sign looks great and grammar needs no correcting. Colour stands out well with the print.

    I thought of this as well. I only put friends first because when you walk into the hall, the 3 friends tables are the first tables you'll pass. I may switch this though. Thanks for the detailed reply! 馃榾

    Colour codes. Neat idea!!! Eliminates table #'s on each table too. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Or, instead of numbers, you could use different colours for the sections.

    For example:

    Friends

    Blue Tables

    Family

    Green Tables

    Or, whatever your wedding colours are.

    Friends is right (no apostrophe needed in this case)

    I would put Tables since there is more than one table in each section.

    Gotta love negative feedback. I never believed people when they said weddings can bring out the worst in our family members....


    "If you need a place to rest your feet,

    See below to find a seat....

    Friends
    Tables 1-3

    Family
    Tables 4-10"



    I don't know if you want to worry about this.. but some family might be 'offended' that they aren't at the first set of tables... I've had people complain to me that they feel like 1 is most important and 10 is least important. If that's a concern you could flip it around so it's


    Family

    Tables 1 - 6


    Friends

    Tables 7 - 10.

    No apostrophes! You only use apostrophes when you are showing ownership (ex. That is my friend's car). But because you are telling them where to sit, it is "friends" and "tables".

    I've sent this to two family members for proof reading, but all they had were negative comments, so here I am. 馃槀 #isitoveryet
