My sister is doing this for hers. She doesn’t want to be “on display” at a sweetheart or head table – she’s pretty shy. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with this. You should do whatever makes you most comfortable/happiest.

I don’t want to be separate from the rest of my friends and family for the wedding. So we’ll probably sit at a table right in the middle 🙂

We are not doing a head table. I always feel like I’m in the Last Supper! I also hate not being able to sit with my date when one of us is in the wedding so I think we are going to do 2 round tables for ourselves and the bridal party and their dates (since all but one are married).

We had two receptions–a luncheon following our ceremony in Massachusetts, and an at-home reception back in DC. At the luncheon, we had only a dozen guests, so everyone sat around one big table. At the at-home reception, we reserved one table for us and those of our guests who had been particularly helpful in planning the wedding. However, it was just a regular table, not one “on display.”

I wanted to be right in the middle of my guests, so we sat at a small round table for four – with my Maid of Honor (my husband’s daughter) and his Best Man (his cousin).

we arent doing a sweet heart table or one that over looks the whole party. We are just doing a table that will sit us and our whole bridal parties with their dates.

We’re sitting w/ our parents so that our attendants can sit with their partners. We need to fill out our table of 8 with two more, and I’m stumped about who to include without making anyone feel excluded. We might just have a sort of empty table.

There has been talk of not having a head table or sweatheart table. I suggested the idea of having the wedding party still sit together, but at a table in the middle of the room. That way we can sit by everyone we care about and love. But if the Best Man wants to sit by his dad because his dad doesn’t know anyone else but his son and the groom, then who am I to say no to that? Granted, I’m still waiting, so who know what will really happen.

We’re sort of doing a head table, but it’ll be a rectangular table with seats on all sides and us in the middle facing the guests. Our bridal party has 3 on each side, so with dates there would be a max of 14 people, which will totally fit at a rectangular table. That way we get to sit with our favorite people, and our bridal party gets to sit with their dates.

Not us. We’re not having a plated meal but rather having a self-serve/buffet style ‘tea’ to encourage people to get up and get more food/mingle around. We’ll just be having some tables set up in the general vicinity.No seating plan free-for-all, we expect about 50 guests give or take.
There is also a ‘lounge’ area inside our venue facing the lake so I am sure some people will congregate there too. I plan on wandering around from table to table to lounge and back making sure I have an opportunity to say hi to everyone.
