- Wedding: June 2011
I’m trying to figure out how I’m going to sit certain people. Ok my mom and dad are divorce and have been for a long time and they get along great so sitting them next to each other isn’t really the issue. Ok so here goes, the Pastor, his wife, my friend from college which is about 20 years older than me and her husband, and my father and his girlfriend are all similar. They are very reserve, not loud or anything like that, and all 6 of them are heavily involved in the church. So I sort of want to sit them all together because I think they will feel comfortable with each other and would have common things to talk about. My mom and her boyfriend can also fit into that group as well but my mom is a little more outgoing and like to “cut-up” from time to time. I feel better putting her with aunts and uncles because they all have similar personalities and will have common things to talk about. However, although my mom and dad should definitely sit at table 1 which is closer to my table because they are my parents. At the same time I do not feel comfortable putting my friend from college and her husband and the pastor and his wife at table 1 too. She is my friend from college and I’m glad she is at the wedding but Table 1 seems like an important table and I just feel her and her husband should be at table 4 or 5 or something. I would much rather put my mom, her boyfriend, and several of my aunts and uncles at the same table. My aunts and uncles are very important in my life and I would feel more comfortable putting them at table 1 than my friend from college and the pastor. However, that would also mean that I would have to put my dad and his girlfriend at another table too. So if i move the pastor and his wife, the college friend and her husband, and my dad and his girlfriend to another table that would be perfect. But I don’t want my dad to feel offended if my mom is at table 1 and he is at table 3.
My problem is at Table 1 which is closer to me and my fiance’s table will be my mom and her longtime boyfriend. However, I also wanted to put my dad there too. For personality sake, I think my dad should sit at the table with the pastor and the college friend and my mom should sit at the table with my aunts and uncles. I think this seating arrangement will make them all feel comfortable. I just don’t know how my parents will feel if one is sitting at Table 1 and the other is sitting at another table. I don’t want to put the pastor and his wife or my dad and his girlfriend with my aunts and uncles because they like to drink and curse a lot. I don’t want anybody to feel uncomfortable.
I know this sounds confusing, it would be best to explain this with pictures I guess. Am I over thinking it? Who did you sit your parents with?
