Can I phone and ask to not be seated at the same table as my ex-wife at a wedding reception?
Gem Myers - Do you mean phone the bride and groom? If so, yes. I am sure that they would want you to be comfortable on the day. With my seating plan I have actively avoided any exes sitting near each other x
Laura Welch - You could very politely enquire. Say that it would lead to a more comfortable atmosphere for you and you'd very much appreciate being on a different table. Seating plans can be stressful so bear in mind that you'd need to give the bride plenty of time. I'm sure she'd want you (and your ex) to feel comfortable xxx
Daisy Alice Drew - At my mum and step-dad's wedding due to a family fall out my step-dad brother and sister had to be sat at different ends of the room to each other let alone on the same table. I think it only becomes an issue if you are the father and your ex is the mother of the bride or groom
Laura Morton - I avoided sitting anyone with history together, but think it's fine to enquire, as long as the wedding isn't next week when the seating plan is already printed!! X
Lauren Jade - Yes I think that's fine, although I'm sure they won't have put you together the in the first place.
Nicki Moseley - Absolutely, I'd be surprised if they chose to do this anyway
Laura Jo Griffiths - Yes ofc you can x
