“First come , first serve seating” and “reserving those larger tables for older family members” unfortunately are polar opposites.

You will need either a seating plan for those tables or placecards for those guests.

Honestly, not having enough seating for every single person is a poor idea in my opinion.  Even your young guest will want a home base to put their purse, sit and chat and what have you.  I would highly recommend a seating plan.

We are doing a similar concept, and my cousin did this a few years ago and everyone loved her reception. For family members we will be reserving 2 tables of 10, one for each family, and placing a sign on it that says reserved for bride’s family/ reserved for grooms family.

One idea is to choose a handful of tables that will accommodate the family members you’re concerned about, and put signs on them that say “Reserved for the Bride’s (or Groom’s) Family.” Let your parents and elder relatives know to sit at the reserved tables.
