My vision is to have about 3 farm tables (vertical) set up for our wedding guests. The sweethearts table (just bride and groom) will be located at one end of the farm tables as a separate table facing the guests. We were planning to reserve our close family members about 49 seats of the guest tables that will be at the closest end towards the sweethearts table.
Has anyone had issues reserving only some seats and then allowing open seating for a set up like this?
I've prepared a floor plan and verified that couples can find seats next to each other if they just work it out. But I was worried that some people would have to sit at different tables when they came as a couple. I was also thinking to maybe assign groups to a table so it would work a little smoother.
Any thoughts or recommendations on this would be greatly appreciated.
