    I’d say go with the second option!

    @goingtotherooftopoflove:  If you’re going to have the partners there, they might as well be next seated next to their partners. I think it’s a little odd to have a non-bridal-party woman up there, not next to her partner.

    So I vote for the 2nd option.

    I clearly see the advantage of this choice (partners get to sit together), and I don’t see any disadvantages.  Can I ask what disadvantages you see?

    @goingtotherooftopoflove:  “With option 2, you don’t think it would look weird for the bridal party to be split up?”

    I think it would look more weird for the partners to be split up than for the bridal party to be split up.

    @JulietFoxtrot:  agreed, I think it would look more strange for partners to be split up.  

    @goingtotherooftopoflove:  Since the partners are only up there to sit with members of the bridal party, I don’t think it would look strange for the bridal party to be split up.  Either way, it’ll look great!

    If you are going to have partners at the head table it would look more weird for them to be split up from their partners and the bridal party seated together than it would for the bridal party split up and the partners seated together.
