We were originally going to do open seating at our reception. Well I did a little research and found that isn't the best route to go because seats will be taken, parties will be split up and blah blah blah. So now we are doing table assignments. We went over the list last night and decided on a sweetheart table. We have 32 immediate family members, wedding party members and their spouses who are split up between tables 1-4 as they're 8 top tables. My concern is that my fiancé's parents have some close friends in town and I have a feeling they might be upset if they aren't sat together for dinner. My fiancé says not to worry about it but I can't help worrying about hurt feelings where his parents are concerned. He actually has two sets of parents so we are seating his father with my parents and his mother with my sister the MOH and her family because they already know each other. Why is this such a big deal to me? I just want everyone to feel welcomed and comfortable. Did any of you have similar issues?
