I’ve never noticed table numbers, so I don’t know why this would matter, lol. Will they be served last or be further from the ‘action’ or something?

There are advantages to being at a distant table. Usually you are closer to the washrooms and the bar.

If you are having a buffet, you can balance the seating location by calling their table number after the VIP tables.

I think most people have a pretty  realistic grasp on the closeness of their relationship with the bride or groom. So a casual acquaintance or coworker should understand being seated farther away.

@nishaes:  I would just call the tables to be served in reverse order then! To make up for them being further away.

I agree with what msfahrenheit said.

@msfahrenheit:  Good point.  I don’t think I’d be offended, personally.

I think the only way I would be upset is if you put my Fiance and I at different tables. Or maybe if I was at a table all by myself…

I intentionally sat our groups of teenagers or understanding young adult friends at the last tables 🙂

@msfahrenheit:  I agree. 

I wouldn’t be offended about a table number, but I wouldn’t like being split from my social unit. For me, that’s just my Darling Husband, and I don’t know how I would feel about being apart fom kids if we had them.

@nishaes:  Is it that the groups are just too large? I found groups that added up to 10 and placed them together. So for example, my uncle and his wife and 3 kids at a table with my cousin and her mom and mom’s bf also with a married aunt and uncle with no kids (5+3+2=10). Its easier if you write them down on index cards by party size and match them up that way.

And also it depends on the age of the kids. We have some families whose kids are bringing dates, so the whole group wouldnt fit at one table, so we placed them at adjacent tables.

I wouldn’t be offended. But this is exactly why I won’t be doing table numbers
