I've been a bridesmaid at a wedding and then they sat us with the rest of the guests. I'm pretty drama free, but I didn't feel less honoured for that. On the contrary, I had fun because we sat with our friends . The only thing was that the sweetheart table was kind of far away from the tables with guests so that's where I got the lonely feeling from. I don't know, I could be wrong . I want to have mine a bit closer to the rest of the tables and since there's not many of them I think it's doable.
@perianjay We're expecting around 40-47 guests and 4 kids. I have two MOH and my man of honour, my brother haha. Juan has one of his sisters on his side for sure and the other two people are not sure if they're coming or not (his other sister and his friend), so we might only have a bridal party of 4 people.
@veryvalentine those pictures are along the lines of what I had in mind for our table, I like the third picture in terms of the decor but I couldn't help but to think, how in the world do two people eat on that tiny table (half of which is overtaken by decor) hahah. I do love the chaise though , too bad they're too expensive for us to rent one at our hotel.
I also thought about having our siblings at our table, they don't have dates so it might be an option but then would the rest of the bridal party feel left out? I agree with you though in your case, if your cousins will be coming from Spain they probably want to spend some time with them .
