Should The Parents Sit Together?
Question: Is it better to seat the parents of the bride and groom at the same reception table or at different tables?
Answer: by The Knot
A very good and not often asked question. Traditionally, the bride and groom’s parents sit at the same table, sometimes with the celebrant and his or her spouse (if they attend the reception) or with your grandparents. But some couples arrange for two parent tables, so that each set of parents can sit with more of their honoured friends and relatives. You might also choose separate parent tables if your parents don’t get along especially well, or if they’ve never met before and you don’t want them to feel awkward (of course, depending on your parents, sitting together at your wedding might be a great introduction). If either of your parents is divorced, you’ll probably want to have each parent and his or her spouse host their own table.
