My family is at the head table with me.  Also at this table is my bridal party and their spouses.  We are having our ceremony and reception at a historic mansion and the dinner is in multiple rooms.  45 prople total.

Our parents and the pastor and his wife will be sitting with us.  We aren’t having a head table; everyone will be sitting with their spouses and friends.

Our parents are with us at our family table.  We aren’t having a head table – our bridal party will be sitting with their significant others.   We are sitting with our parents and our grandparents and a non-headtable-like table.

My family will be at the table with us.  Our bridal party will be sitting with their spouses at the table next to us.  There really isn’t a head table at our reception because it’s at a plantation and it’s a small wedding (60 guests).

We’re not doing a head table or a sweetheart’s table.  Instead, we’re sitting with our parents and siblings at a centerally located table.  The bridal party will be seated with each other or with people that they already know.

We will be sitting each set of parents with the friends that they requested be invited.  This way they will have a great time.  I may add an aunt or uncle round out those groups.  We will have 3 of these tables because my parents are divorced.  While they get along, my Mom they each have a different set of friends they would like invited. 

The the table arrangements are what we are dreading most about the wedding planning.  (this person doesn’t get along with that one kind of thing)  there is lots of family drama on my Dad’s side.

Don’t be afraid to set the parents together, between family stopping by, dancing, cake, toast etc there will be SOOOO much going on there will be plenty to keep them occupied. 

We are nixing the head table/sweet heart table and just sitting with them.

Also, they may wonder why you did not sit them together….

Table #1 (not the head table, which was bridal party only) consisted of both sets of parents, plus "favorite" aunts and uncles, who also happened to be those who either had grown up kids they would not be sitting with, or who had large family groups they would rather sit with. So we had 8 people at the table, which worked well.
