Bridal Table: Traditionally, the bridal table is reserved for the bride and groom and is a large rectangular table in the center of the room. The groom sits to the right of the bride and the best man is seated on her left. The date of the best of man is seated to his right. The maid of honor is seated to the right of the groom with her date on the left side. If you have excess room the additional members of the bridal party can be seated with their dates; if you don’t have enough space seat them at tables in close proximity to the bridal table.
Family Tables: Traditionally, the parents of the bride and the parents of the groom are seated across from each other at a large table. The additional seats at this table are taken by the officiant, grandparents and close family members. A modern option is for the parents of the bride and parents of the groom to host their own individual table.
Divorced Parent Tables: In the case of divorced parents each parent should host their own tables. Ensure the tables are far enough apart to allow them to feel comfortable and enjoy the night.
