    At this time we are unsure if we want to have a wedding party. My BF wont be able to make it and a few other friends are iffy. FI also is unsure who would be traveling with us so my questions is who sits at the head table? I feel weird if its just FI and I. I thought about having our parents up there but I am unsure. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    We didn't have a head table. My husband and I just sat with both sets of our parents and that worked out great!

      Are you speaking of the AHR or the reception in St. Thomas?? We are having a AHR but its more like a party so we aren't having a head table. Only about 30 people are traveling to Jamaica with us so we opted to do a sweetheart table instead of a head table.

      Typically the wedding party sits at the head table with you but I just went to a wedding where the bride and groom has their wedding party at the head table with them as well as their parents. I think if you want to have your parents sitting up there with you, that's fine.

        It would be the AHR. We are looking to have about 150 guests for dinner and than like 50-75 more for the dance. Id like to have a head table but again I dont want it to be just the two of us Id feel weird.

          We're having a reception in a couple weeks for about 270 people. We did not have a wedding party, so we will be sitting with our group of close friends. I think you can sit with whoever you want. We will be sitting at a round table, so I guess it's a little different than a head table, but you could arrange it however you like.

              My parents are planning my AHR. It's going to be like a traditional wedding reception(which by the way was NOT my idea!). We will be going to sit at a "sweetheart table", just the two of us, even though we have a MOH and best man. Whatever makes my parents happy, LOL. I'm just going with the flow. We'll most likely be only sitting down when we eat, the rest of the time we'll be dancing or mingling
