    Most of my bridal party dates have other family coming or co workers so it worked out really well. the only one who doesn’t have anyone and thats one of my bridesmaids and i put her boyfriend with our old friends from high school that she doesn’t like anymore because shes now super religious and she looks down upon them. but i had no choice!! oh well. it will be fine. its just for dinner!

    Well we had two rectangle tables for the bridal party, so we sat the dates with them at those tables.  They were all located behind our sweetheart table.  For an actual head table though, I’d assign the dates to a separate table, or if they know other guests scatter them where appropriate.

    I would urge you to think about this deeply and see how it would affect the dates. If they know lots of other people than it should work out fine but I hate, hate hate it when the dates get shoved off to the side somewhere and don’t know anyone.

    And on the subject of head tables, it really depends on your style and personality but the thought of everyone staring at all of us like we’re on display at a head table while we’re eating did not appeal to me.

    We had their guests seated at the head table with us.

    I voted for other because I’m going to our BMs and GMs sit with their SOs. We only have 4 on each side…two of my BMs have an SO (one including my brother who is a GM) and three of the GMs have their SOs so we only thought it be best that they with their SOs. I went to a wedding which the bride had the SOs of the bridal party sit with amongst other guests and it just made the bridal party members leave their designated table to sit with the SO.

    I voted other because we didn’t ahve a head table. Everyone just sat at tables- no special seats for anyone.
