There are only 2 people out of 6 in our wedding party with dates; my sister in law, and the best man.
My FI and I, along with our wedding party, are having a private cocktail hour in the hotel bridal suite. Obviously this includes the best man's date, as well as my sister in law's husband (aka my brother). They of course will also be having dinner at the head table with us.
We decided we will be doing the bridal party intros into the reception. How should we work the 2 dates? My brother was planning on leaving the private reception a few min early and sitting with my family during the intros, and then joining his wife at the head table once everyone was introduced.
However, I don't want the best man's date to feel weird or awkward. Should both she & my brother sit at the head table by themselves while waiting for the intros to be over? Should she sit at another table with people she knows during the intros, and then join the head table?
i know it's only for a few minutes, but I hate the thought of anyone feeling awkward or uncomfortable for any duration.
