Never heard of that, but who’s paying you or her? If it’s her then she’s hosting and should have some say. If it’s you and your FH, then ask her to name one or two people she’d like to be seated with.

@Esquia82:  I have never heard of such a tradition. I think I would tell her that you already have the seating chart worked out. No reason for more drama so close to your wedding 🙂

If you already have it worked out then dodge the subject.

Here is how we do it when one of our girls is getting married:

MOB hosts her own table

FOB hosts his own table

Groom’s parents host their own table.

Then, I go through and seat our family members on the chart, I ask the kids to figure out how they want their friends seated, and I ask MOG (if groom doesn’t want to do it, and so far he hasn’t) how she would like their side of the family seated.  It has saved me immense headaches doing it that way.  Our 4th DD gets married next year!

I would let her know the tables she and her family/freinds are sitting at.  She may know that cousin A doesnt speak to cousin B and may prefer a friend of two of hers to sit at her table, even if it means the family sits elsewhere.  I see no need to share table arrangments of others with her. I would make certain her table was as nice as your dad’s.
