We’re struggling with table arrangements too!  I broke up our wedding party instead of having everyone at a head table.  It was just too many people to be practical, and we didn’t want to move a date singly to another table.  Instead it’s:

Bride/groom/bridesmaid 1/Bridesmaid 1’s date/MC bridesmaid/MC bridesmaid’s date/single bridesmaid/best man/best man’s girlfriend.  The adjoining table is the rest of the groomsman, and a 3rd table has the rest of the bridesmaids.

I’d at least try to keep dates together with their partner.  It’s a celebration of couple-dom after all 🙂

Yup.  We only put them with our most fun friends though 🙂  In a way, they got the best end of the deal!

So for us the wedding party was split into three.  Some with us as detailed above, another table of groomsmen and their dates, and another table with the remaining bridesmaids, their dates and a few other really fun guests that they are already friends with.  Part of our problem is having 6 bridesmaids and 6 groomsmen!

If you plan on having a date sit apart from their SO, I would plan to do that for all the SOs of the wedding party, so at least those people can sit together.  My sister did that at her wedding, and it worked out ok, but our dates were pretty disgruntled!

I checked with our wedding party and they laughed at me!  They said I worry too much and they are happy to sit wherever we want them to sit.  🙂  Such good friends!
