  1. Avoid the Plague..

Or the seating chart conversation that comes with it! Instead of allocating seats for each individual person just allocate table numbers, each person can then decide who they sit next to on the table.

2. Feet for Thought

Head to the chemist for some numbing cream before walking in those brand new wedding day heels. Apply a little to the points of your feet where your shoes apply pressure to avoid the unnecessary pain – um, yes!
