@Jessicachantal:  I’m also interested to hear answers and see pictures of head table setup as we are also having 3 and 6, except it’s 3 bridesmaids and 6 groomsmen.

Dang that’s hard. Do you have an unequal number of parents that you can also put at the head table to make the numbers even? That’s the only think I could imagine. I have two dads and one mom (step mom passed away a bit ago), FI has a mom and dad. Or put 4 groomsmen on side of groom and the 3BMs ans 2GM of your side….it won’t be totally even but it shouldn’t look to bad either. Most people won’t even notice the head table…they’ll be busy eating.

We had more bridesmaids than groomsman – so what we did for the head table what have H and I in the middle, bridesmaids sit beside me and then groomsmen and ushers sit beside him. So the numbers looked a little more even.

@Jessicachantal:  Ours was uneven and included 2 spouses that weren’t in the wedding party.We had 9 total…on my side, my daughter (junior bridesmaid), matron of honor and her husband. On his side was his best man and wife (she was also my bridesmaid), his groomsman and his wife. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With a small reception we didn’t want to stick the two spouses (who knew no one else) to sit without their spouses. I don’t think it ruined the look we were going for.

Have you considered a sweetheart table as an alternative? That’s what we did, and loved being able to talk just the two of us, and our bridal party preferred being able to sit with their spouses/dates.

I agree with @MrsEdamame.  A sweetheart table seems like the perfect solution for this problem.

You will also need to include dates, so with the dates will the numbers still be uneven? Also, you can just mix everyone up, esp if 3 of the BMs are his sisters – they can be seated on his side. With their dates. (I’m not a big fan of head tables bc they usually split up couples just so that the B+G can get a cool pic when they won’t even be sitting for very long).
