Feeling a bit overwhelmed
Hello to all my brides and brides-to-be!
There are only 425 days until our big day. When you look @ the number it seems kinda high but it really isnt too far away. YIKES!!
Anywhoo, my partner's family is latino and her parents speak very little english. My parents are black and dont speak any spanish. I am slowly but steadily learning and of course my partner is fluent in both languages but we are both SUPER nervous about our families meeting for the first time which will probably be at the wedding (or the engagment party if we have one). I say all this to ask about seating assignments and "getting to know you" games. We really want our families to interact with one another and we dont want either set of parents to feel isolated because they dont know anyone else. How do we ease the discomfort/tension and make everyone feel at home and at ease? Should we do seat assignments and have some "getting to know you" games at the table or would this be considered too traditional and formal considering we are a SUPER laid back/chill couple? Any feedback is appreciated.
