I’m not going to be any help at all…


Because your situation is just about the same as mine. The only difference is that I “bit the bullet” and am letting him walk me down the aisle. Through I regret that decision now.


Hopefully someone can come in with sage advice, but know that there is another bride out there with a loving mother and in-laws… and a very problematic father.

I say do what makes you comfortable. Most of the weddings i’ve been too people only sit in their seats for dinner anyway. I’m assuming more of your family knows you’re not super close if this has been going on for awhile so would they really make a fuss out of it?

I would eliminate the top table idea. Just do a sweetheart, and seat your mom, her husband and your Mother-In-Law and her husband at one table (maybe with your grandparents) and then seat the dads at another table with their parents. This is my plan as my father and I do not have a tight bond (he is not walking me down the aisle either. I am also DREADING the father-daughter dance).

We’re doing a no family top table. Just us bridesmaids and best men. then two round ‘family tables’ at the front, closest to the top table, and everyone else back there. Its such a relief that all the families agreed that this was best

And if you need a little chinwag, message me. I’m in the UK too xx

We’re also not sitting with our family- our bridal party and their spouses will sit with us, and the parents (mine are divorced) all get their own tables. Everybody’s happy that way! 🙂
