    We have about 45 people (still have 4 days for RSVPs) and we are having rounds of 8 or 6. Not sure which. I'm hoping to do a mixture.

    Anyway, we have 2-18 year olds and 2-15 year olds coming. I want to put them at the same table, but who do i punish and stick with them.

    Even if they are delightful (yeah right), the guests that we seat with them are going to feel like we put them at the extra, left over, kiddie table.

    One time I went to a wedding and there happened to be 3 empty seats at our table. Well, we eventually found out that they were vendor's seats. It wasn't said, but we all felt like orphans.

      I know it sounds ideal to seat the 4 of them together, but considering your concern about accidentally making a "kiddie table" you may want to consider dividing them up. 2 at one table and 2 at another. kinda' spread them out a bit! :-) And it may be helpful to seat them with people that they know if at all possible, might make it easier if they're at least a little familiar with whoever they're sitting with.

        That is a good idea. I may have to do that. Not too worried about the 18 year olds, but the 15 years are a different story.

        Thanks for the advice

          Awww. I also have two 18 yr olds and two 15 yr olds (one of the 18 yr olds, and one of the 15 yr olds are mine), and I consider whoever gets to sit with them will be lucky, they are great. I love their ages, (and I live with them) they are freakin hillarious. Who ever sits at their table will have a great time.

            I agree with Kelly! Don't under estimate the ability of a 15 year old to behave appropriately, and actually be entertaining to others. I would not do a "kiddie" table. Spread them around where ever makes sense - like with their parents? Other favorite relatives? It will be fine no matter what :)

                Really? Hmmm, what are you worried about? Is he just in that every thing gross & disgusting is cool phase? Will he pull pranks?

                    Very diplomatic of you! Well, I'm sure the rest of your family is well aquainted with this behavior? Will it come as a surprise?

                      in that case, i'd say put him by his parents - is that an option?
