Can you sit them with their cousins or other friends they would know? I don’t think that’s too weird, as long as they are somewhat familiar with the people they are sitting with.

@babylou: I agree. At my cousin’s wedding last year, I was seated with my parents and 4 college-aged students I didn’t know. SUPER awkward. Later we found out the students attend the same university I do, but they weren’t friendly and we never even talked to them. So, as long as you make sure the parents and the children are with people they know and can talk to, I don’t think they need to be seated together.

At my cousin’s wedding in July my boyfriend and I were sat away from my family with a table of the bride’s cousins and friends who were all around our age. While it was slightly awkward at first we all had a good time and once dinner was over everyone was up and around mingling anyways. Definitely no need to keep them with their parents (unless it is an only child and you would be seating them with an entire table of strangers, I could see that being awkward for sure.)
