Pro’s and Con’s to your Wedding Reception Table Layout



Just some quick pointers before you start ooh-ing and aah-ing over how many geometric formations you can make with tables:

  • The bride & groom typically sit at the middle of a long table (which is the head table) and are seated with the bridal party and the groomsmen.
  • The parentals sit at the same table as well as members of the immediate family who are not in the wedding party. The flower girl and ringbearer usually sit with the parents. Seating, of course, is flexible and can needs to be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
  • If there are guests who just SIMPLY cannot be civil with each other (but you have to invite them), make sure to assign them seats far, far away from each other. They can thank you later for not spoiling their appetite with the company of Person-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.

With space being the ultimate deciding factor for you in considering layout of the tables – there are a few options to choose from and questions to ask yourself & the venue!
