Social Saturday :: So You’re Having a Head Table { Savannah Wedding Planner }

Good afternoon, y’all!
I hope everyone’s weekend is off to a scintillating start – ours is packed to the hilt with client meetings, but that’s just how we like it since all of our brides have fabulous taste. Being surrounded by pretty things and gorgeous inspiration really isn’t so bad at all 😉 Now on to today’s bride question, which comes to us straight from our Facebook page:

“Who should sit at your head table? What happens when some of your wedding party has dates and some don’t? Do you sit your parents there? What’s the rule of thumb?”
The general rule of thumb for the head table is to seat bridal party and their significant others. If you end up having some extra room, go ahead and seat parents {if you have room for BOTH sets – don’t leave one set out if you’re including the other!} or close family {perhaps a cousin who for whatever reason wasn’t in the bridal party} there. Typically each set of parents either sits together or has their own table off to the side but closest to the head table. If you don’t have quite enough room to fit everyone at the same table, you can pair some off at the tables closest to the head table where your parents may be sitting. You know you friends and family best, so if you have a close childhood friend who is practically your parents’ second daughter, it makes more sense to pair her and her date at your parents’ table rather than one of your college roommates who may not feel as comfortable with your parents.
Do you have a seating dilemma you’d like some help with? We’d love to hear about it! Let us know in the comments or on our Facebook page.
Have a fantastic Saturday!
