My fiance and I will be sitting with our parents at our head table. It’s our way of honoring them and thanking them for everything they’ve done throughout our lives.  This is a big day for them too, I am the youngest and their only daughter.  As for my fiance, he is the first to get married in his family (he has two brothers, one older and one younger).  Also, everyone in our bridal party has a bf, gf, husband, or wife, and kids so we want them to be able to sit with their families.

I didn’t know that a "head table" included the bride and groom.  I thought it was just the parents and any other "honorary" guests?

We are probably going to have a sweetheart table. I’d like to include the wedding party and their dates, but we have such a huge group, that it would be at least a fourth of the guests! Not to mention, that half of my girls have kids as well that would need to sit with them. I have one maid of honor and five bridesmaids and he has eight best men, so just having honor attendants with dates is out of the question too.

I am using the same exact arrangement as danabel. All of our bridal party is traveling to our wedding with their guests, and I wanted to let them sit together.

We were also like danibel– sweetheart table for us (which we actually had on the dance floor during dinner so everyone could see us), 1 table for bridesmaids and their dates, 1 table for groomsmen and their dates.  Each set of parents (his parents, my mom, my dad) had their own table and they could choose who they wanted to sit with them.
