So the place for my reception is one of the most gorgeous in my city (or maybe I'm just biased lol). The main side of the room that I will be in holds 110 people. I am expecting 125 but might have up to 150 people. I was going to put a dance floor in the middle of the main room as it is basically set up with poles in the room for that purpose, however, my FI and mom refuse to put any of their guests in the other side of the L because they don't want to offend their guests by being on the other side of the room from the wedding party. My solution was to have the cake set up so once dinner is over we all have to go to that side for cutting and back to the other side for dancing. This still didn't appease either of them.
So do I just stick every one of my friends to be "exiled" as my fiance calls it, or do I put the dance floor in the other room and have 110 people on my side with about 1 or 2 tables on the other side. I'm sure I'm not the only bride who's using/used an L shaped room
