- Wedding: January 2014
So I’m thinking as my partners mother passed away a few years ago and my parents are both remarried, and my bridesmaids have children / partners & groomsmen too, would anyone care if i didnt have a head table?
Im just thinking it would be alot easier & comfortable for the guests and bridal party to sit with their family at their own table.
Im thinking myself & partner as Mr&Mrs will sit with our 3 children at table in front of everyone (long narrow room – sounds awful but it is gorgeous!) then have three table in front of us as my mum & her partner, 2 bridesmaids (sisters), and brother. Then in middle grooms father, step mother, our 3 children then one the other table my dad, stepmum, stepbrother & 2 of their close friends that are coming.
Then the other tables behind them will b all the other guests, arranged however i manage….dont even want to think about it tbh!
Does that sound just awful because i think its fine??
But ive got my mother saying ‘no your only making more of an issue of it for everyone to see’ got my stepmum and his step mum saying ‘put the kids on my table not anyone elses’
So im utterly confused..Im wondering if it would be better or worse? i really have no clue, partner said that he doesnt care, he’s happy for his dad to sit on other table, it wouldnt upset him or bother his family at all – would love us to have own table alone etc but that its down to me as its mostly my family that would be the reason i do either – which is true.
As the furniture has to be rented from a different company than the reception venue as they literally mean blank canvas when they say it, ill need to have table / chair qauntitys etc and seating plan done asap so at least i know what i doing.
But i just cant decide.
