we’re doing a sweetheart table. i have six bridesmaids and he has 6 groomsmen and i thought 14 people at one table (not including SOs) was just too many. plus i figured even though it’s our wedding, we probably won’t get much time just for the two of us so it’ll be nice to sit down and have dinner alone amongst all the people there for us. our bridal party is pretty social so it’ll also be nice to have them immersed in the guests to mingle and whatnot.

I had the same issue and decided to just stick w/ the head table and have their dates sit at another table. In the grand scheme of things, the dinner portion isn’t that long. It’ll give their significant others a chance to meet new people. Not to sound hateful or bridezilla-y or anything, but the wedding party is there to support you and your new husband. It’s not really a date for them. An hour sitting without their date shouldn’t be too big of a deal to them.

We’re doing something a little different and sitting with our familes at our round table of 8 (it’ll be: bride, groom, MOB, FOB, MOG, FOG/doubles as a groomsman, sister/MOH, and our officiant/groom’s uncle). Table 2 will be the remaining bridesmaids and their spouses/So’s, and Table 3 will be the reamining groomsmen and their counterparts. It’s a way to honor those that have been there financially as well as emotionally for us, as well as let our friends (the BMs and GMs) sit with their loved ones.

I did the same as JennyBryde – seated all the attendants with their spouses or significant others. Most of them were married or didn’t know too many other people, so I didn’t want to separate them.
