To ensure that people seated in the smaller room don't feel alienated or unimportant, fill it with a good-natured group of guests who won't take offense. If your parents' friends fit that description, there's your solution. Or perhaps your close aunts, uncles, and cousins will anchor that room. You might also co-opt the concept of the kids table, putting teens and tweens in that spot. Whomever you seat there, be sure to make at least one lengthy visit to the room. When it comes to activities such as speeches or your first dance, ask the site manager for solutions, and be creative. Maybe you can have a toast in the main room before people are seated for dinner, or a PA system can be set up so guests can hear announcements.
