Since you’re doing a sweetheart table I think it’s totally fine to seat them with people they’d be more comfortable being with.

Absolutely fine and they will probably be more comfortable.

They will probably thank you for it.

Sounds fine. That’s what I’m doing. Our party will be seated with their SO’s and friends/family during the reception.

I think its really considerate of you and I’d appreciate it if I were in the wedding party. We sat with moh and bm + their dates but split the rest between two tables with people they were familiar with. Groomsmen + dates, bridesmaids + dates.

My friend did this for her wedding and it worked out great! We strongly considered it for our own but then decided to do a table with us and the bridal party/their dates so that we wouldn’t feel quite so alone at a sweetheart table; do what works for you!

You are fine to split up the wedding party (lol – somehowwe focus so much on the bride at weddings but it is the wedding party).  It would lookodd if you had the plus ones at the head table but since you are doing  a sweetheart tablethatisfine.  Though for those brides and grooms who elect to have the entire wedding arty together that is fine too. For goodness sakes folks it is the bride and grooms special day; it is great to meet new people, you don’t have to marry them, wedding party members can learn to be grateful, gracious and meet a new friend – it is just for one night.

We are splitting our bridal party up so that they are sitting with friends/family.  Not all of our party know eachother well (and some won’t meet until right before the wedding), so we aren’t going to put people in awkward situations of making small talk with people that they don’t know.
