    Where are you sitting? At a sweetheart’s table?

    I don’t think it really matters where they sit, together or apart, but this is one of those things where if my Fiance felt strongly on it, I’d group them together. I’d also get him involved in helping to make the table assignments – once he can see how hard it is to get the right number/mix of people, he might like your way better.

    We had a head table that our wedding party sat with us at. Their SO’s sat amongst our other friends.

    As a Bridesmaid or Best Man in a few upcoming weddings, if I am not stuck at the sweetheart table I would rather be with people I know/want to spend time with. BUT ultimately I would do whatever the bride/groom wanted me to do (with a smile, because this is what I signed up for when I said yes to being a bridal party member).

    @gigemily:  In your situation, since it’s already done, I’d keep it that way. Normally I would put all the bridal party together.. but to redo it all would be more work for you & a pain. Leave it how it is.

    I think your bridal party should sit with the people they know.

    Personally, I am not a fan of head tables – so our Bridal Party sat with their SOs and/or other guests that they know.

    I sat my bridesmaids/groomsmen with their partners at tables with people they know. When the DJ announced tables to head up to the buffet (not relevant if you’re having a plated dinner), she just started with our table and worked her way out, so that the bridal party wasn’t eating while other people at their tabled just watched them. It worked out great.
