My fiance's parents are divorced but do get along and have been good for the most part through out this process... My fiance's father is the best man and his brother is a groomsman. They both have girlfriends that I would consider serious, not engaged or even close really but together about a year and attend holidays this year etc. When deciding the seating arrangement for the ceremony of the families the grooms mother, who is re-married, said they should sit back with the rest of the congregation. We have three rows reserved for family on each side with a total of 22 seats for bride and 22 seats for the groom side. The bride has 19 family members taking up most of the three rows. The groom on the other hand, since his father and brother are in the wedding, only has 11 family members, leaving 3 empty seats in row two and an entire row empty. Where should I seat the girlfriends??? With the family? In the third empty reserved row? or in the congregation???
