We did a “sweetheart table” and sat our wedding party with SO’s at a table close by. Worked perfectly. 🙂

Besides what’s been mentioned, the only other alternative that I’ve heard of is when the couple reserves 2 seats at each of their guest’s tables and they move from table to table throughout dinner. I personally think that would be a nightmare to have to deal with (Are they going to move their plates from table to table? What if they don’t get around to everyone? Etc…) but I’ve heard this idea more than once and I guess some have enjoyed it. If you ask me, it’s just easier to make the rounds and chat with each table for a minute or two and then move on.

@MrsTimmy: My brother had a round table like everyone else at his wedding, I honestly didn’t even notice it was odd till I saw this!

We are doing practically the same thing. We will be seated at a round table, the same as everyone else. And we will have some of our closest friends sitting with us. The rest of our family and bridal party will be at various tables.

Our head table will be pretty chaotic: 3 groomsmen, inlaws, Fiance, myself, my mum, stepdad, brother, 2 bridesmaids and bridesman.
Normally I wouldn’t have insisted that my brother be up there, but as my dad passed away a few years ago, he will be walking me down the aisle – so I believe he should be up there too 🙂
