I think it’s completely fine. I would just seat her with whoever you think she will be most comfortable with. If she is close to your Mum in age, then that sounds like a good idea! I have the parents of one of my friends coming (they won’t know anyone and have not met my parents) and I am just seating them with my parents and their friends 🙂

I think it’s fine to sit her with older relatives like aunts and uncles, and that is in fact what we did with some older friends. And if those aunts and uncles are at the same table as your parents… sure, why not? It’d be not so much that she’s at the “parents’ table” as the “older relatives table”.

Yeah I think it’s a no brainer – seat her with the older relatives. The point of seating charts it to ensure people have a great time seated with people who they get along with. 

PS I’ve already got her married to your divorced uncle in my mind lol

goldenbrown :  I would definitely seat her with your mum, uncle and older relatives if they have the most in common (age, political views etc.)

Yeah I agree with everyone else. Because of odd numbers we had to split my family oddly at 2 different tables and my mom’s best friend and daughter ended up sitting at their table. It pissed some family members for a bit but once the drinking and dancing started- who cares. It was a better fit for dinner conversations.
