We’ve started working on our seating chart and I’m really struggling with where to put people. Surprisingly, it’s my family that I’m having the most difficulty with.
I am the youngest of 7 children (all 6 older siblings will be attending). Five of my siblings have two adult married children each, one has four children all ages 13 and under. Do I keep all those families together or keep the siblings together and the nieces/nephews together? Example:
Table 2: Oldest brother and his wife, nephew and his wife, niece and her husband
Or do I make a table with my parents and my siblings and their spouses and put all the nieces/nephews and their spouses at other tables?

I would put together the people you think would enjoy their time together the most For instance, if your siblings don’t get a chance to see each other a lot, put them all together because I’m sure they’d enjoy catching up. If you can trust your nieces/nephews to sit together, have fun, but not be disruptive, I would put them together too, but likely close to the parents so they’re close at hand if needed 🙂

This may sound stupid … but are our parents/grandparents supposed to be sitting at the same table … or does each family have their own table? I thought the tables would be separate, but I was just reading that both sets of parents/grandparents should be at the same table?
I swear, I learn something new every day!
