WEDDING IDEA ~ Via another pinner who said: This is awesome and if you put it in the same blue thread that you do the date on the underneath of the dress it'll be awesome and a great photo opportunity! --doing it!
Having empty chairs across from the bride and groom is a Scandinavian tradition. The signs aren't necessary, guest just know that they are invited to come and chat. This is a simple way to take the pressure off of the bride and groom to do a receiving line or make it around to every table to greet everyone. This way the newlyweds can actually sit and enjoy the meal and it's up to the guests to say hello.
