I don’t think it’s rude at all.  Are you worried your parents will be offended by this/there will be taboo religious discussion?

If it’s what you want to do, and you think everything will actually turn out fine, just do it.  I’m sure everyone will be able to get along swimmingly, and if they can’t, forget about it.  No point in stressing over people’s inability to be genial on your wedding day.

It could work by why?  Why not have your parents host a table of relatives from your side and his parents host a table of relatives from their side?  I don’t see any reason to seat people you love where they will be uncomfortable for your wedding reception.  Wouldn’t you like them to look back at your wedding as a wonderful evening?

I agree with PP. I know what you want to do, but they are the ones eating dinner at the table and enjoying or not enjoying themselves.  I would sit them with their families. The two sides do not have to sit together. Looking back at recent weddings, most of them did not sit the two sides together at the same table.

If it is upsetting to your parents, why do it? I’ve also never seen the parents seated together, and we certainly never considered it. Let his parents have the pastor with them, at their family table. Problem solved.
