Obviously, I will find out soon enough, but my fiance has no idea (of course). My Fiance is is a Groomsmen in the wedding of a childhood friend. Being that they do not see each other very often, I will very likely know no one at this huge reception. Is it typical to seat all of the GMs together? I will obviously survive if this is the case but…eek.

@InATizzy: And of course I posted under Bridesmaid or Best Man instead of Groomsmen. Sorry.

ugh it all depends if they have a had table or a sweartheart table. Most people these days do a sweatheart table, just bride and groom, vs. the head table, with all the wedding party. We just decided yesterday to do the sweatheart table. My bestie is married to my brother, and they have two kids. she’s in the wedding and he isn’t …. it was kind of fun daydreaming about making him sit at the table with their two kids … alone .. to juggle it… but meh .. every one else in the wedding party is married or engaged so I don’t want to split people up.

@HisIrishPrincess: I hope that’s how it is! I don’t want to split people up at my own wedding for this reason.

We are seating the entire wedding party AND their +1s at the head table for this reason—don’t want anyone feeling uncomfortable. Hope you’re not alone!

It just depends. I went to a wedding recently where they scattered the bridal party throughout the tables, which was great because we were good friends with one of the GMs, and he got to sit with us and his wife. I’m crossing my fingers for you that the bride and groom have a similar arrangement so that you can sit with your FI!
