What about your grandparents on his side of the family? I’d try to put him with either family from his side, or older family friends. If those aren’t possible, I think it’s best to put them with your uncle. There will probably be more people at that table to diffuse the awkwardness. So they can decided how close or how far away to sit. Good luck and hope that helps!

Why not mix it up a bit and not necessarily seat entire family “sections” together? Cousins could sit with others their age, and your Mom’s brother’s family- could you split them up a little, or do they need an entire table? Does your Dad get along with that part of your Mom’s family? at least they must know each other… maybe they could sit together?

I’m going through something similar…and I think it is so obnoxious that people can’t get  along for one day. But I guess it just goes along with wedding planning. It’s just not one of the “funner” parts!

Doesnt your dad have a friend he wants to bring?  I also have to seat my parents VERY far away from one another.  Opposite sides of the room.  Where are you sitting?  Maybe you can seat him at your table even if you are doing a bridal party table or a kings table he can sit with you.
