I’d put the coworkers there.

You said the restaurant said no way, but is it possible to pay a fee or something to get everyone in?  We had to do this for our RD, it was $250 but we couldn’t find a way to split people up without hurting feelings.


Good luck!

@Agretzner:  Personally I would bear the brunt of this oversight, and put the bridal party there.  They are likely to be busy and not sitting in their seats after the event gets rolling.

I’d put the coworkers there. They probably don’t know many other people, will be busy socializing with each other, and probably wouldn’t mind being seated away. Especially in the bar area. The wedding party should probably be more the center of attention.

@Agretzner:  Personaly I would sit in the other room with my family and close friends.

I would put family or very close friends over there and talk to them ahead of time. I’d probably sit over there also.

Maybe close friends and let them know.  I think it would be easier if it were people who were close to you since theyd be more understanding. Not co-workers since they’d feel like maybe they weren’t good enough to sit with the family. Maybe couples with kids? I wouldn’t have the bride and groom sit there because people want to see you and might be offended if the bridal party sat in a different room.
