We’re having a very small dinner reception of about twenty to thirty people with six tables in the room. I don’t think that we need to tell people where to sit in this case but I do want to make sure that the two tables next to our sweetheart table consist of our families. So what I was thinking was just getting two frames and putting “Reserved” in them somehow, maybe either just “Reserved” (and let those that are to sit there know) or “Reserved for Bride’s/Groom’s immediate family” or “Reserved for” and list the names. I figured it would be an easier idea then making escort cards or a seating chart for what could be only twenty people. Is this a good idea? Are there any other suggestions?

I like Reserved for Bride’s/Groom’s immediate family. Last wedding I went to had reserved tables for family members but the bride and groom only put reserved on the tables so no one knew who was suppose to sit there b/c they didn’t tell us. It wasn’t until my aunt the MOG came in and told us to sit in the reserved area that we actually go to sit down.

@MrsPinkPeony: We would tell the people since it’d only be six per table. I’m worried that if we leave out the term immediate family that the wrong people will sit there. But I also hate putting immediate family because that term more so would mean those closest to us which isn’t completely just immediate family (in my case it’d include at least one aunt, in his it’d include his best friend since he was little).

I would just put “RESERVED” and tell the appropriate people to sit there.
