I still have five months to go, but I'm already stressing out about how to seat our bridal party at our wedding! My fiance and I each have four attendants. Two of his are his brothers, each of whom have two kids (ages 4-9). Two of mine are my sisters, each of whom also have two kids (ages 1-5).
I've never been a fan of head tables. I've sat at one as a BM and was really uncomfortable looking out over the entire reception and facing no one. I've also been in a wedding that follows what seems to be the more common trend of having a sweetheart table for the bride and groom, and seating the wedding party together with their guests. I think it's less awkward for the bridal party and is nice for their dates who, if they don't know anyone else at the wedding, won't be left stranded at a table full of strangers. And honestly with the craziness of the wedding day, I love the idea of a nice cozy table for two for my new husband and I. This is the route my fiance and I are strongly considering.
