@GreenEyedMoon: Darling Husband actually started the table arrangement puzzle and he did it in excel of all places!

We took the list of attending guests and classified each guest into a category (i.e. Bride family, Bride Extended family, Groom family, Groom Extended, Godparents, Bride’s college friends, Groom’s college friends, etc) and we used excel to total up each group.

Some groups were 8, so they were a table in and of themselves. Other groups added together to make 8 so we’d check the people, then stick those together. Then for the larger numbers we’d either find a logical place to split or just split in half and combine with half of another big group (if that makes sense).

Doing it that way and “classifying” everyone first helped a lot and a lot of groups naturally “fell out” so then we focused on the less even splits.
