Where Do We Sit?

The rsvp's are in.  Now, it's time to figure out where to sit everyone.  It's not an easy task, but it can be done successfully.  Just be patient!
The number one question we're asked?  Where do we sit - the bride and groom?  There are a few good answers - here they are:

1.  At a regular sized guest table.
You may choose to sit with a few members of your bridal party.  It's usually best if you place the parents at other tables to spread out the hosts and give more people a table with some VIP's.  In this instance, you can sit with some bridal party and their dates.  Spread the rest of the bridal throughout the reception area.

2. At a bridal party table.
This isn't the large bridal party of yesteryear.  It's a large table that the entire bridal party and their dates are seated around.  The key word here is around.  Seats are placed around the entire table and usually requires a larger rented table.  A standard banquet table is 30 inches wide and not wide enough for two place settings.

3.  At a sweetheart table.
This is a table just for the two of you.  Usually this table is a 36 inch round table and is placed near the dance floor.  Just try not to leave each other while seated at the table, it can get lonely.
