- Wedding: October 2011
My fiance is adopted and met his birth mother about seven years ago. He’s been immediately drawn into their family (me too), which is great…except he didn’t think they would all want to come to the wedding, just the members he’s close to. He asked his mom and she asked around and everyone really, really wants to come…even though it would be a long drive for all of them. It’s flattering and my FI is ecstatic about having his family join in, but he hasn’t thought of it logistically and we’ve gone over capacity for our space! Fire-Marshall-wise we’re in the clear, but table space wise we are in trouble.We’ll make room for them, because they are important, but I’m panicking a little here.
I have eight 60-inch tables that I would put eight people at each one. We now are going to need to have one table of ten people to accommodate the now additional. Plus we’ve lost most of the space for our dance floor. My intention was to have the caterers take a table away after dinner to make the space bigger (we originally only had seven tables), but now we’re probably going to have to have two taken away. I just worry about cramming a table full of ten. Would it be weird to have two tables of nine? We have two people who are coming without guests that I could put at these tables, but I worry about it being awkward or crowded. Opinions?
