    If they get along seat them together.

    I would absolutely put them all in the first row. The view might not be quite as good from the outside of the row, but I think that’s much better than putting one couple before the other.

    Since they get along, put them all in the first row-that’s what we did.

    My parents and step parents all get along thankfully, so I don’t need to worry about any dramz between them.


    The only person I have to worry about is my ex stepmom, who I am not inviting. That is SO going to cause major dramz.

    How bad can the view from the front row be?

    If they all get along, I would seat them there, or ask them what their preference was. You can share that you are concerned about the view, but you are also concerned that placing one couple in the second row would be perceived as lesser ranking.

    Definitely the same row, otherwise you would offend someone.

    If you’re concerned about their view- arrange it so you’re facing them. I was standing on the left side, facing my parents who were on seated on the right side. I LOVE that I was able to see my family, vs. DH’s, during the ceremony.
