So I have a mini destination wedding coming up with a whole weekend of events from my bachelorette party, to BM luncheon, spa day, rehearsal/dinner, and of course the wedding!
My question is this: with 8 BMs + MOH, how do you ensure you are spending time with all of them semi-equally?
I am rooming with my MOH and sister for the whole weekend, and I am also treating my MOH to a longer spa package as her gift from me, so we’ll be together at the spa day as well as in the rooms. For the rehearsal dinner, I have a super awkward family dynamic, so rather than have a head “family” table, I was going to sit my parents apart with their respective sides of the family, and sit his parents with their immediate family. I dont want a sweetheart table because I want to spend time with everyone, and think dinner would be a prime opportunity for FI and I to sit with a few members of our bridal party.
I was thinking myself and FI, my MOH and her FI (also a groomsman), two of my single BMs who dont really know anyone else and dont have dates, and then one of FIs best friends (a groomsmen) and his girlfriend who are both in the military so we dont see them often. (Total of 8 seats at the table)
But, I started thinking about it- should I switch my MOH and her FI for another BM and hers?? That would even up the time more maybe, but I dont want my MOH to feel slighted, as she really doesnt know the rest of the bridal party except through me/wedding events. I think she’d be more comfortable sitting with me.
**I am for sure doing assigned seating for many reasons. Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
