Okay so I work at a law firm and have two bosses, both are invited to my wedding. Boss A actually RSVPed yes, which I was super shocked about but okay awesome. However Boss B has not sent in his RSVP and I’m not sure if he’ll come but he still has time. BUTTTT if he doesn’t come I have NO CLUE where I’m going to sit BOSS A. I literally had Boss A and Boss B and one table with their wives and was going to have my photographer and husband sit there when it was time for dinner. But the rest of the night it’ll just be my bosses at that table with their wives.
The only table that has any room for Boss A and his wife is a table with DH’s aunts who only speak spanish. What should I do? Should I just seat them there if Boss B doesn’t come?

Personally, I wouldn’t sit the two bosses and their wives with the photographer and her husband (is there really only 6 people per table?) unless the photographer is a personal friend of yours, nor with DH’s aunts. If possible, I’d try to put them with other coworkers or friends of similar ages or interests. This could mean splitting up a natural group in to two tables (like splitting your 8 college friends between two tables).
Somtimes, you don’t necessarily need to seat people by social group, but by personality. I recently went to a wedding and was assigned the coworker table, but two relatives were also there. The two were chatty and outgoing, and it wasn’t awkward or uncomfortable at all.
Good luck, this is really hard and not something the Bee can truly help you with because we don’t know your guests!

canadajane: Welllll the thing is that all my college friends are in their 20’s meanwhile my bosses are in their 50’s idk how that will go over.
All the other tables are filled only free tables are my friends table and my DH’s aunts. I want him and his wife to be comfortable ya know. This sucks lol. I honestly thought he wouldn’t come. Not that I don’t want him to but I’m the youngest person in the office so I thought he would kindly decline. Guess he loves me too much lol
