Have your guests sit “family-style” during dinner. When it comes to the reception, opt for family-style seating. Long rectangular tables with seats or backless benches on either side will create both a casual and intimate feel. You’ll get to socialize with more of your guests this way. It’s much more romantic than having a separate table for the bride and groom. And for whatever reason, family-style seating always seems to ignite imromptu speeches—added bonus!
