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

Thanks for the info christine. I can totally get what you are saying from the pic! So you and your husband sat at the head table solo?

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.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
