    I kept people who knew each other together, but mixed up the tables (so table 11 was my coworkers, 12 was DH’s coworkers, 13 was friends, etc).

    I’ve had a great time at weddings with either arrangement! It’s fun getting to know new people and it can be nice to catch up with old friends too. Keep in mind that it’s only for dinner (max time ~ 2 hours) and assuming your guests are adults, they know how to handle sharing a meal with unfamiliar people! I always guessed that mixing people up is a little easier, since groups of friends can be unequal in number and you wouldn’t want a few couples to be “excluded” from the table that has all the other people they know sitting at it due to space limitations.

    We mixed the tables so that everyone was sat near-ish to someone they knew, but that they were also sat next to someone who we thought they would have something in common with. So neither option is quite right!
