Not sure if this is the correct board for this but just hoping for some ideas. I'm trying to get a rough idea for seating plan and trying to decide who to place on the top table with me and groom.
My dads passed away, am barely on speaking terms with mother and sister, other sister is autistic and probably won't come. I am friends with my brother and his partner. On fi side he has both parents and a sister with long term partner and we're having a large wedding party but no MOH or BM.
My concern is that a) my family won't come last minute and unsure I want to be reminded by that from an empty seat next to me and b) if we have my fi and his family on the top table and my family do come that it wouldn't be taken well at all. Any ideas of how to keep the peace?
