I am not having parents at the top table because they didn’t help with the wedding at all and we wanted our kids there instead so our top table is
me and Fiance
Bestman and his wife
Maid/Matron of Honor her husband and son (son is page boy)
Our three little girls
has anyone else not gone with tradition?

Not sure what a toptravel is but if it’s the same as a head table we had us and our wedding party which is fairly typical for our area.

I haven’t thought too much, but probably just us, our two groomsmen, and our two bridesmaids. I think our parents have plenty or relatives coming that they could chat with and I know I’d be happier with my Fiance and peers as opposed to sitting next to my mother for 5 hours.

We are not having a head table, but rather sitting at a normal table with my parents and my fiancee’s parents.

@almost mrs: Wow, having anyone except your bridal party at your head table is non-traditional in my province / country. I’ve never heard of spouses / parents sitting at the head table before.

another sweetheart table here.

I’m doing a sweetheart table as well – our parents will be at a family table, and our bridal party will be spread out so they can sit with their friends/guests.

i’m not sure we’re having a head table. i haven’t decided. i don’t want to split up our Bridal Party from their SOs though, and if we do all round tables (including the head table) there won’t be enough room at a table that seats 10 if both Groomsmen have +1s (at the moment, one is single and the other is seeing someone casually that we don’t see going anywhere, but you never know), because my Maid/Matron of Honor and her Darling Husband will have their two children with them. that would be two Groomsmen and their +1s, me and Fiance, my two BMs and their SOs and two small chidren, and my son too probably. that’s 13 people. lol. i’m not sure we can do a banquet table for the head table at the venue we want, or even if i’d want to if we can. i’m thinking we’ll just skip the head table and seat the Bridal Party with the guests and Fiance and i will either have a small sweetheart table toward the center or sit at whichever table has our folks at it. or maybe our friends? i don’t know.

We are having the head table with bridal party only, but not include their spouse (well most of them are both in our party anyways). Good thing is, we picked bridal party from the same group so they know each other.:)
