We are doing a head table lucky for us our Bridal party are all married to or SO's of each other except for the best man and we will include his girlfriend at the head table... whatever your choice don't split up the bridal party from their SO's
I haven't seen anything BUT a sweethear table and the BP at tables with their SO's in years. Like maybe once. I feel like that 'presidential style' seating at a massive head table is kind of dated too.
Sweetheart table. I'm not splitting BP from dates/significant others, especially since some don't know as many people at the wedding. Also head table even with just parents & siblings wouldn't fit in our reception space [there are columns].
We're doing sweetheart table. We may even be able to spend a couple of minutes talking/eating! I haven't seen the head table done in many years- as a BM, I'd much rather sit with my friends/SO than the BP (unless I'm single and i'm hitting on them or something lol).
@Ashley- adding SO's to the head table does not make it a King's table. A head table is located at the front of the room and is often elevated. It is a long table, sometimes with two levels if the number of people is large.
A King’s table is a large rectangular or square table (depending on number of guests) for the entire bridal party including their guests, parents of the bride and groom and whoever else the bride and groom want to include.
We did a head table with all the BP and their SO'S....they were thrilled! Head tables are no more rude than sweetheart tables - it's quite simply personal preference. Rude is the single most overused term on WW.
