with us- parents and us are sitting together
We will have a 2 person sweetheart table. My parents will be seated at their own large table to my left and his to his right.
With their friends and family – I hope! We’ll have two languages at the wedding and not enough people speak both.
Ours were split – my parent’s wanted to sit with their friends and his wanted to sit with family.
is no one else sitting with their parents?
Mine was the same as FutureKMM – my mom sat with her friends who happened to be the flowergirl’s family, and his parents sat with their family/grandparents.
We’re having a sweetheart table. We could only get 8 person tables maximum, and FH & I did not want to have to choose whose parents/ family to sit with (mine or his), so we decided to sit alone. Makes it easier on us.
So my parents are sitting with my sister, her Boyfriend or Best Friend, my brother, my uncle and my other aunt and uncle and I’ll have another table full of family. FH’s mom is sitting with her family/ invited guests (I think– still figuring that out, depending on who is actually attending on that side). We have a small guestlist, at 45 maximum people.
I **think** that we are going to seat my parents with FI’s mom and step dad (and maybe sister) and maybe my grandma and our officiant (my aunt) and husband. And then FI’s dad/step mom with their family.
This is hard for us because FI’s dad and mom CANNOT sit at the same table, but FI’s mom will not have any family there (we didn’t invite her side of the family at hers and FI’s request) so I don’t want her to be with some random table ya know!
Ooh I’ve been wondering about this myself – when I asked my parents, my mom exclaimed “I want to sit with my friends!!” and I always thought it was etiquette that all the parents would sit together. They’ve never met, and I’m not sure if it would be more comfortable to sit with their own families/friends. At least I know other people are doing this!
lol i’m still waiting for a buddy in my category.
We will have a sweetheart table too. The plan is to have my mom to host a table to our right and his mom to host a table to our left. Their tables will mostly be respective family anyway. There is a big age difference between our parents.
