Ignore my mum or suck it up?

I'm a little torn about what I'm supposed to do in this situation, so I come asking for help.

Now, my mum's always been horrible and controlling and a little evil sometimes.
She's demanding we (bride & groom) sit at the groom's table because "it's tradition" - i.e. I now belong to his family (puhlease)!
We really don't want to do this, because we want to be with our friends. I don't want to sit there with his family while they're chit chatting in a completely foreign language.
Honestly, groom's parents could not care less where we sat. I should also mention we're not having a bridal party, so that makes it a little harder to argue.
At the end of the day, my mom "wants face" (i'm not sure if that's a thing that non-Chinese people say?), even though she goes on an on about how the wedding is not about her, so that's why she's only inviting like 20 of her friends, instead of more. (BTW, we're only having about 80 people all up I'd say 20 is a huge chunk of that number!)

Anyway, should I just suck it up and sit with the groom's family (apparently I won't have time to sit and eat anyway, because I'll be too busy talking with people...but that's so not happening - i want my food)....or should I just ignore her and sit us with our friends and feel her wrath later? I mean, what's the worst that can happen? She kicks me out of home? Oh wait, I'll be leaving anyway.
