Why We Love It: Make your guests feel comfortable stopping by to chat throughout the night by setting up chairs across from your table!

This wedding tradition hails from the Scandinavian region. Jen and Mike chose to incorporate it as a tribute to Mike's homeland, Sweden. There, the signs on the chairs aren't typically used, since it's so common for guests to join the bride and groom through the revolving chairs. It's a wonderful way to let your guests know that they're welcome to join you during dinner; often, guests will avoid approaching the bride and groom while they're seated because they worry about intruding.
