Our wedding is Sept. 17th at 6 pm, reception immediately after at a hotel. We are not doing a sit-down plated dinner, rather we chose to do heavy hor d’oeurves. Our immediate family is having a round table reserved for them. We cannot decide if we should do a head table for us and the wedding party (splitting up their dates, which they would be ok with anyway), or if we should just have a regular round table reserved for us. Input on this or any other suggestions about what to do?

How many people are in the wedding party? Would you get a traditional long rectangular table?
Most people will be walking around and mingling during this type of reception anyway, so I think you’d be fine either way. However, I think it would still be fun to have a head table where your wedding party can keep their things and sit down if they like. It’s nice to have the VIP feeling when you’re in a wedding! 🙂

I don’t really like head tables. As someone who was the date to someone in a wedding party with a head table, I felt really awkward sitting with strangers. But since you aren’t really doing a sit-down dinner and your wedding party won’t be required to sit down at all really (it seems?) I don’t think it matters much.

My daughter is having a sweetheart table for just the bride and groom. That way, the members of the wedding party can sit with their dates/wives/husbands/families. Everybody seems happy with this arrangement.
