My parents are both “only” children and I have no living grandparents. Both of my brothers are in the wedding party and will be sitting at the head table. Who should my parents sit with??? My mom is asking ME, like I should decide…Anyone have any ideas?

There isn’t room for the parents at the head table?

What about with the groom’s parents?

I would put them with other family members or their close friends.

We had our parents sit together. We filled the rest of the table with each of our last suviving grandma (which I know isn’t an option for you), my great uncle and his wife.
If they don’t want to sit with the new inlaws have them select some friends.

I think that if they can sit with your new in-laws that would be nice or choose their closest friends. (Which could be the girlsfriends your mom grew up with and their spouses or the couples that they spend time with now to give you some ideas…)

The grooms parents or if they have any special super close family members. I have no siblings, but my cousins are like my brothers and sisters to me.

Thanks for your suggestions ladies! I talked to my mom about it and we discussed that she and my dad will likely sit with cousins at the reception.

This is just my experience, but my in-laws and my parents are very different people and although my family is always very polite to my in-laws, I know they don’t really like each other. For this reason, we let each of our parents “host” their own tables. My parents each hosted a table with their family and friends (my parents are divorced and in new relationships) and my in-laws had their own table with my husbands grandparents and their friends (my Father-In-Law is an only child too). This was nice for all of them because they got to visit with the people closest to them.

I put my parents with my husbands parents. 8 people could be at the table so it was.
and them my mom chose her brother and really close friend (I callher an aunt) to sit with.

His parents and my parents were at separatable tables and since my parents are divorced there were even more tables! My dad sat with his brothers and sister and their spouses and same with my mom. My husband’s parents sat with their friends even though they did have siblings at the wedding they didnt want to sit with them!
