My daughter is having a sit down dinner reception and the only “reserved” tables are for the grooms immediate family, brides immediate family and wedding party. I REALLY don’t want my step sister sitting with us. How can I graciously tell her to sit somewhere else!!!

Well….does she have a list of people that fall under that reserved category? To me “immediate” family wouldn’t include my Aunt/step-Aunt (or however it works). So, I would ask her what her plans were before jumping to conclusions. However, if you KNOW she is seating her at a reserved table, I would ask her if she would be willing to revise her definition of immediate family. If your step sister is important to her though, you may be out of luck. Just keep in mind that most tables are pretty large at weddings and it’s likely you can sit pretty far away from her if you try to!!

I think that since it is your daughters wedding you shouldn’t make a fuss about it. You don’t have to sit by her the whole time; just when you are eating. Chances are she will sit somewhere else anyway because she probably doesn’t want to sit by you either, and if she does, I think you should just be a better person and make the best of it.
