Plan your quince seating arrangement ahead of time to keep family drama from ruining your party.

Dear Family: Why can’t we all just get along? Well, first you should know you’re not alone. We all have that aunt who loves to gossip and that uncle who thinks he has the solution to every problem in the world. So what to do when you’re about to put them all in one room?

Don’t panic! Take a deep breath, follow these quince seating arrangement tips and celebrate a stress free Quinceañera.

Less is more!

Try to sit only 8 people per table. This way if anything happens at a table, not a lot of people will be involved. It is also easier to control a group of 8 than of a group of 10.

Carefully choose the number of guests per table to avoid drama!

We are family!

Have you ever heard of “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer”? This is true with family too.  If your aunt doesn’t talk to your uncle, sit them together. Yes, as crazy as it sounds, sit the problem makers together and keep the drama to a minimum.

It’s a great idea to number each table and let your guests know where they’ll be sitting.

Be ready to hear complaints from your parents.  Make sure to remind them that this day is about you and as adults we must all learn to get along with one another, especially at important celebrations such as your quinceañera. As for your guests, they will probably be seating for an hour while they eat. So don’t sweat it, just do it!
