    do whatever makes you most comfortable and happy!  and just because the 7 guests would be from your FI’s side, doesn’t mean they have to sit on one side of the aisle.  Just have 4 sit on one side and 3 on the other!

    Is there any inbetween of a fancy courthouse that you could do an elopment style wedding and only have your mom and his parents at and then have the immediate family all join for dinner or something?

    In CA we have the Santa Barbara Courthouse and you can do as formal or informal of weddings there as you like. But, it is simply gorgeous.

    rendezvous89:  Why not seat people differently?  Four and three, as another poster has suggest, or in a circle around the officiant, or half circle, or some other idea.  Then you still have an aisle, and your mom will be able to walk you down.

    +1 to PPs who said you don’t need conventional seating. Remember, focus on the good of the day and not who is missing! You will be surrounded by those who love you and want to celebrate with you 🙂

    Why not immediate family and close friends. Then you can fill up your side (or hopefully just audience) with people who love you And who you’ll be happy to see, but avoid inviting family you don’t sound thrilled about.

    Definitely do what you would feel is best! One of my closest friends had a TINY wedding, a total of 10 people or so. It really comes down to your preferences – though I think you should consider immediate family, despite the headaches it may cause. Good luck!!

    Put out juuuuust enough seats for everyone, and they’ll have to sit on both sides! Problem solved!
