1. yes, it’s fine to seat the parents at their own tables.

2. in your case, I would probably have a sweetheart table. It’s nice to have some time to yourselves as a couple, and you won’t have to deal with showing favoritism to some guests.

I agree with the PP. Seat the parents apart so then everyone is happy and then enjoy a little private time during dinner at a sweetheart table. It would be weird to sit with one particular group of friends.

Do a sweetheart table. We had a bridal party, but still opted for the sweetheart table so that our bridal party could sit with their spouses/significant others.

Yup, our parents are sitting apart (they will have only met the night before at the rehearsal and are SO different I don’t want to prolong the awkwardness) and we are having a 4 person sweetheart table so people can sit with us and chat if they like 🙂
