Assign tables. Makes life as a guest and as a host easier.

The back and forth over kids brought up a point to me, that I think anyone under 18 should sit with their parents.   If parents want kids at a wedding, THEY should supervise them, not some random people.  Unless you assign seats, some parents will let their kids run off and sit wherever.

I also would be nervous about just reserving sets for family.  What if someone things they are immediate family and you don’t?  Do you include SOs of siblings?  Is someone going to have to tap on their shoulder, and say, oh you are not immediate family.  Assing everyone to a table, no hurt feelings.

Do table assignments. We had 120″ rounds which seat 8-10 people each. We basically grouped people together so that everyone would sit with someone they know or at least had something in common with.  We ended up with 11 tables.  We could have filled only 9 or 10 tables if we broke people up to make sure each table had 10.  Instead, we just left some tables with 7, 8 or 9. It also only took 15 minutes to figure it out.
