I am wondering how brides and their grooms went about seating arrangements for kids, when the kids were to be seated with their parents and not at a separate “kids” table. In my case, we have 5 children between the ages of 2-5 to be sat with their parents all at the same table (the children are cousins). Does each child get their own seat?
Additionally, we have 6 more children attending, of whom I do not know their ages or names. I would guess they are between the ages of infant to young toddler. They have the same mother (the mother is dating my FI’s cousin-if that explains my ignorance of their names and ages) Do I give each one of them a seat? Of course, the obvious thing to do would be to ask FI’s cousin, but it was like pulling teeth just to get their address (which ended up being wrong, anyway!) and it’s a “delicate” situation to bring up the kids at all because only 2 of them are FI’s cousin’s and well…..family drama and all that.
And lastly, another part I’m curious about is the “name cards” for seating arrangments. In our case, we are having a candy buffet and each name card will be a chinese take out container to serve as name card and container for the favor. Should the kids get their own? Each adult is getting their own, I just don’t know what to do about the children…..??
