So I know a bunch of you are doing outdoor BBQs, but what are your thoughts about assigned tables? I've honestly never been to a wedding with them, and I really don't want to dictate where people sit. The few friends I've run it by haven't ever been to a wedding with it either.
However, my concern is that we are inviting people who don't really know anyone else. Also, I don't want families split up. Our ceremony is in the same room as our venue and everyone will be seated at the actual tables for it. Then the cocktail hour will be in the next room, and everyone will come back for dinner. Due to venue restrictions, this has to be the setup. Ugh, I don't want people meandering around, wondering where to sit. Chris definitely wants assigned tables.
Thoughts? What are/did you guys do(ing)?
