    @CorgiTales: Completely off topic, but we’re both in Cbus and I’ve never heard the expression “tuscan table” before we picked our venue – I couldn’t help but wonder where you guys are getting married??

    Sweetheart table. I want my bridal party to be able to sit at a reserved table with their significant others, as well as a table reserved for our family..

    @TealChocolate:  I’m getting married in Columbus also and we are planning to do a Tuscan table as well.  I heard that expression from a couple venues that mentioned it to me when I told them I hated head tables 🙂

    @smileyd:  I have a rather large wedding party (8 on each side).  My venue, however, will provide round or square tables.  I thought it would be kinda fun to mix and match round and square tables all around the room.  The groom and I, wedding party, and their dates will be in a large head table with 5 or so square tables put together (not like the traditional head table where the wedding party looked over everyone else, though.  the party will be seated all around the big rectangle of tables.)

    I wanted my wedding party to be together and at the same time include their dates.  I’ve definitely been a date to a groomsman (who is now my FH) that I couldn’t sit with.  I didn’t know anyone at the wedding.  I spent the entire time texting him!

    We did attendants and their dates.  That way their dates didn’t have to sit at a random table where they didn’t know anyone.  We had 18 people at our head table, with chairs on either side (but with open space in front of bride & groom so people could come up and talk or take pictures).  That way it avoided the awkward problem where the whole wedding party is looking straight ahead and can’t talk to anyone.  The table was way bigger than we were planning or originally told by the venue (causing a last minute freak out on linens and decor), but I think it turned out nice.  I’ve attached a picture for fun.  🙂
