Seating Chart Question

Recommended Posts

I have a ton of time for this and still haven't got all the rsvp's but have a pretty good idea. I was just thinking about where I would assign everyone and FMIL mentioned briefly one if she would be sitting with my mom (they have met once along time ago and have nothing in common).


Is it weird to have them sit at the same table? I mean honestly it would work out good as far as getting everyone seated and not having extra spaces at tables but I wasn't sure if this was extremely uncommon or not?

I actually had four parent tables (we both have divorced parents)

My dad sat with my step-mom's family

My mom sat with all her friends who had traveled to the wedding

My father in law sat with his wife and his family

My mother in law sat with her family


we actually arranged them so that the first row of tables was us, our wedding party on either side and then the second row was all the parent tables.

Most of them seemed to be fine with it.


We also then put other immediate family, like the rest of the uncles/aunts & grandparents in the third row.


We did put the people with young children in the back and by an exit door (that was also near the restroom) and all of the mom's said they really loved that.


not sure if you can tell how we did this with this picture but I will try to find another picture for you

I hope this helps

it was a small table, I think its called the sweetheart table, but it was honestly our only alone time the entire night and I was really happy for it, also I think its easier for everyone to come say hello when you are not at a huge table with other people.


not sure if that makes sense

I don't think it's weird. We had no seating chart but we also had a small group. For us everyone sat where they wanted and it worked fine. At our location people weren't seated long so maybe that's why it didn't really matter. If FMIL wants to sit with your mom and your mom is okay with that I say go for it.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
