I ran into this same dillema when I was first deciding what to do.  I wanted to mix and match everyone so they could get to know each other.  But the truth of the matter is people are more comfortable with people they know.  Especially when first seated.  Now after the drinking begins, Uncle Joe will talk to any and everyone!  But I definitely think it’s best to stick people with people they know.

While it would be nice to mix the families and friends so that people can get to know each other, I’d stick with seating people at the table with people they already know.  Many people view weddings as semi-reunions and would much rather catch up with cousin Cathy who they haven’t seen in three years, than make small talk with a stranger that they may never see again.

I put people from the same families together but mixed up the tables.  I didn’t want to have a “his side” and “her side.”

We’re kind of sticking to who they know but mixing things up a little, because thats how things fit best… my guests are all pretty outgoing and will like getting to know some people. That said, I’m making sure everyone knows at least one other couple at their table.
