You don't need to stick to the traditional set up for the top table. Why not sit Dad next to you and MOH & partner next to him.

I had this problem so did away with the top table and had a sweetheart table, just me and the groom and had the family tables in front of us xx

Round tables, rather than the traditional long table, could help. Then MIL beside him. MOH partner with friends. Our Best Man's wife & my MOH's husband will be at a different table, that's just how it is

Have a U or E shaped top table. Place MOH on the end and round the corner her part er

Both parents are here but we do have our best man and MOH on the top table with their other halfs sat with people they don't know. We have a semi circle set up which means they will be sat close to them and I have say them with people of a similar age x

We will be having a round table as H2B also lost his mum last year also feel everyone will talk to each other and be more relaxed x

My MOH and the best man will be at the top table. Both of their OH will be sat on another table.

Your dad is defo more important. Having the MOH boyfriend on a table will let him get to know others besides. The meal is only for a couple of hours.

My H2B lost his mum, and my parents have divorced, but only one re-married.... we are having a top table, but it will be all men apart from my mum & I. Probably look weird, but they all get on (thankfully!) so i'm just gunna do that.
