Before you decide who will sit at the head table, it’s important to make sure you place it in the optimal location in your reception space. If your tables will be arranged around the dance floor, the head table should be directly opposite the band or DJ, closest to the dance floor, and with the newlyweds seated so they’re facing into the room (for the best toast-watching view). If dinner and dancing will be in separate spaces, consider putting the head table right in the middle of the room, with guests all around you. The head table should be centrally located, a focal-point, and arranged so the happy couple can look out to see their family and friends.
So who sits where? Traditionally, the bride and groom sit in the middle of the table, with the bride seated to the groom’s right. Same-sex couples can feel free to seat themselves as they’d like. For a male/female pattern around the table, seat the best man next to the bride and the maid of honor next to the groom. Of course, since they are each of your closest friends or siblings, feel free to swap that so the MOH is next to the bride and the best man is next to the groom! Depending on the size of your wedding party, this table could be exclusively bridesmaids and groomsmen (who should alternate around the table to keep that male/female pattern going) or, for a smaller wedding party or a larger table, could include each member of the wedding party’s date seated next to them. If you have the space, the latter option is preferable—that way you’re not relegating your sister’s husband to a different table!
