I feel as if I am pretty on top of things, but absolutely clueless when it comes to seating.
We’re having a sweetheart table–no “head” table–and round tables that seat 8.
Should our bridal party sit together?
Should our immediate family (his parents & sister, my parents & brother) sit together?
Should I mix “his” guests and mine so they can make new friends? Or sit guests with people they already know?

I wouldn’t sit the bridal party together strictly because they’re the bridal party; usually when a couple has a sweetheart table, it’s because they want the bridal party to be able to sit with their friends/family that are attending, as well. That said, you can have them seated together if that’s what you feel is best.
If your immediate family can sit at a table comfortably then yes I would sit them together.
I would definitely do a mix of a mix, if that makes sense lol! I would seat some of his friends together and some of your friends together and you can mix them up – 8 at a table is plenty of room to stick new people together while keeping them with 1 or 2 people they already know so it isn’t completely awkward.

That’s what I was hoping for. Maybe doing 4 of my friends with 4 of his, so they can meet new people and break out of their shell
