After reading some of the posts today, I have a question about seating. It seems a lot of people have complained about not sitting with their date when they are a part of the wedding party and the other one isn’t.
What are you supposed to do in this case?
For example, my best friend is my Maid/Matron of Honor but her husband isn’t in the party. She says that he will be mad if they don’t sit together. So what can I do?

We’re going to have a sweetheart table even though our wedding is smaller then seat his side of the bridal party and his family at one table and my side and my family at another with their dates.

We had a sweetheart table and had our wedding party scattered throughout the room with people they know. You could also get a double table (head tables facing each other) so you’ll have enough room for the wedding party and their dates.
If you really wanted just the wedding party, I would stick to that and just have them suck it up. I’m one of those people who hates being seperated at a wedding, but if it’s what the bride and groom want, I deal.

I’m having a head table. We just asked for the wedding party to respect our wishes. We didn’t have any complaints at all, but it looks like yours already started complaining.

I went to a wedding a few years ago and my date was a groomsmen and they allowed me all the dates to sit with their groomsmen, and thank goodness for it because i hardley knew anyone at that wedding
im having a long table for the “head table”. and i plan on allowing my bridal party to have their dates sit with them.

I think your Maid/Matron of Honor is being a bit unreasonable, while it’s annoying not to sit with your date, I think it’s pretty common practice to just sit the wedding party together.
That said, we’re not doing a traditional head table and our wedding party will get to sit with their dates!
I think it’s a personal choice though, do whatever you want 🙂
