- Wedding: April 2011
Ok, Fiance and I are having a smallish wedding, the guest list count is at 45, could go to 50. The question I have is about seating. We’re not assigning seats, just tables, and Fiance wanted to spread out his famiy members at the various tables so they just don’t all talk to one another and the other guests feel left out. We’ve gotten comments/requests from family about them wanting to be seated together, and now don’t know how to manage this, esp. since FI’s family has a tendency to be cliqueish and ignore ‘outsiders’.
To clarify, by ‘family’ we don’t mean breaking up immediate families, just things like not having all the cousins together at the same table; if there are several family groups related to one another not putting them all together. Bridal party members are spread around the room as well, although all with their S/O, any children they have at the same table. Do you all think this is rude? Typical? Expected? Or should we be trying to have only people that already know one another at each table?
