What is everybody's thoughts on the table plan? The majority of guests attending are from the bride's side. I'm sure etiquette is to have half bride's side and half the groom's side at a table. Should we try and stick to this or can we keep people who know each other to a table? This is probably the best solution to our set up but I just wondered what people's thoughts were.

This is completely up to you. A majority of our guests are from my side, I would have liked to put the same family groups together, however my venues seating doesn't allow me to do this, so I am mixing all the tables up to be fair to everyone, but I have ensured to put them on a table in which they would at least know half the table.

Majority of the guests that will be invited are from my side. We have decided to try and keep the people that know each other together, especially the family's with young children. Only a few people are mixed up. It is what would work best for us and hopefully minimal arguments.
