I’m not sure I understand why any of the children need to be sitting near their parents when they are ages 12 and up? Are there special needs?

Oh man that would be the worst to sit with a bunch of children. Half of the recpetion is sitting and mingling, so to not being able to chat and drink with people my age is a huge deal to me.

gullivermouse :  Stop letting your FI’s parents have a say on the seating chart.  They’re the ones acting like jerks and if they can’t be adult enough to deal with this bad sheep aunt and uncle one day, then that says a lot about their character.  Do you even know the story behind it? Because if they’re being so insistent, I bet they have something to do with why this couple has been blacklisted.

To answer your actual question though, I would not sit them at the “kids table”.  We had a lot of kids at our wedding and we sat them all with their parents for dinner.  It worked out very well.

OP they are trying to humiliate the aunt and uncle so every solution you come up with that won’t accomplish shunning and humiliation will not “work” for some reason. 

These people are behaving horribly. I hope you know what you’re getting into, because’ likely his mother/father will turn this same behavior on anyone.

notice how they are dictating everything and you’re getting all of your info from his parents about everyone’s relationships.

If the inlaws suggesting this option are suggesting there’s no problem with it– let THEM sit at the children’s table.
