At our reception, we would like to have a long table with FI and I, the groomsmen and the bridesmaids. However, we have just one person in our bridal party who is married. Neither of us our close to his wife and we don’t really want her at this table reserved for people we love. I’d be more comfortable including her if she wasn’t going to be the only odd one out. Do we have to include her at this table? Can we seat her at a table with friends she knows?

@laurenrenee33: There are many options for seating the wedding party.
Traditionally, only the wedding party and the bride and groom sat at the head table.
Some couples choose to seat their attendants with their SO’s at a separate table whilethe couple has a sweetheart table.
Some couples have a huge long or two-tiered head table that includes the wedding party and their SO’s.
None of these choices are wrong.

@laurenrenee33: It’s rude to sit guests away from their dates. If you are doing a “head table” then you should accomodate all of their guests at the table.

I think that’s fine, just sit the wife with people who are friendly and will engage in conversation with her.
