Im so confused on what to do. I have a lot of bridal party people that are couples but I have a few that are not. I was thinking of a few options…

I’m kinda confused on what your poll answers mean. I’m simply putting all of my BMs and GMs with their significant others and each other (for those in the party who don’t have significant others). To fill in spots, we’re putting people we know they’re friends with/get along with. We’ll sit at one of these tables ourselves, but we’re not having a sweetheart table.

I guess i did write it kinda bad.
I’m thinking where all the bridal partys sit together but have there spouses and family with them. However i think that may be to big of a table. So maybe my best bet is to just have all the BP tables with familys close by.

I like the traditional bridal party table. Most of our bridal party’s dates have met each other at one or more of our house parties, so I’m not worried about them during dinner. I feel that my bridal party is there to support us, not to support their date. I know that may sound harsh, but even as a bridal party date in the past myself, I’ve make polite conversation with the other people at my table (like on a cruis ship) and then went to dance with my date after dinner. I’ve also sat with the bridal party and their dates when the bride and groom had a sweetheart table. I think the decision is ultimately what works best for you and your FI. I don’t think your bridal party will mind either way.

I think it’s only for dinner, which is about 45mins, & people should be able to deal with not sitting next to their spouse or significant other for that long. Do whatever you want!

We’re having the wedding party sit at surrounding tables with their SOs. If they don’t have SOs/dates, we’re just going to mix those people among the tables.
Our Best Man/his date and MOH/her date are sitting at the table with us.

I get annoyed at weddings where the bridal party does not get to be seated with their SOs. I’ve been to so many receptions where my FI has been a groomsman and I have to sit all by myself. I totally intend on seating my bridal party with their dates.

I plan on putting my wedding party with their significant others. My sisters and their boyfriends will be seated with my parents. No one wants to go to an event with a date and then be separated. Being the one in the wedding party isn’t nearly as bad as being the date who knows no one. If most of the dates know one another then I don’t think it’s as big of an issue.

We are going to have a Sweetheart table and have the wedding party sit with their SO/FI, etc.

I honestly think you should do what’s best for you.
We wanted our parents and wedding party to sit with us at the head table. Originally, we weren’t going to include their SOs at the head table because they all knew our families very well and had no problem sitting at another table for 45 mins. Eventually, we were able to get a bigger table at our venue, and we seated the SOs up with us (there were only two total).
But, it sounds like you have a bigger wedding party than we did, so you might want to consider how the SOs will feel. Do they know the families well/be comfortable sitting with the No. 2 and 3 tables? If so, and it makes it easier for you, seat them there. Or, just have a wedding party table and seat them with their SOs together.

i really hate being seperated from my date, even if it’s just for dinner. i make my fi come to my friend’s wedding with me and then he has to sit at a table far away from me with people he barely knows (or the other way around), i just don’t think it’s nice.

I am most definitely doing a sweetheart table only for the two of us with the Bridal Party at tables close to ours, so that they can sit with their dates.
