Is anyone having odd numbers on the top table? There will be the groom then three groomsmen then me and 4 bridesmaids, one of the bridesmaids will be 11 and she’s super excited about being a bridesmaid but we don’t know whether to have her on the top table or sitting with her dad and brother, the thought of having odd numbers on the table is freaking me out (purely for the astetics of it) but then I don’t want to disappoint her! But the OH is saying it won’t be that noticeable...
We are having 7 at the top table we are having groom parents, groom, me our daughter (1yrs old) then my grandparents
I am! My parents are divorced and I'm lucky enough to have amazing bonus parents so there will be 4 on my side, me and hubby to be then his parents...it will be slightly off but it's more important to me to have them there x
My table was going to be uneven but I have 4 bridesmaids luckily 3 of them have kids so they are sitting with their partners and kids and my bridesmaid with no kids is the only one sitting at the top table with me maybe you could suggest that to your bridesmaids then the 11 yr old could sit at the top table with you instead xx
Were not having a top table... so not an issue ive dealt with.. No1 will be bothered enough to count.. Too busy having fun..
I've literally never noticed how many people are on the top table at a wedding..
We had 9. We had parents and our 3 children and it was perfect xx
Odd numbers are more pleasing to the eye, everything in shop windows etc is in 3's or 5's. I can't see having an odd number at your top table being an issue... people probably won't even notice anyway
I think just enjoy the whole process, only person thatl be bothered is you & it's your day to enjoy
Mine will be odd as my dad has passed away so will only have my mum and maid of honour. Whereas my partner will have both his parents and his best man
We had 7. Me, my husband, our son and then both sets of parents. Rest of bridal party we sat on the tables in front of us and that way they were able to sit with their own families and partners.
Ours will be 7 as well. X
We’re not having bridesmaids on top table just maid of honour x
Really? Completely random aesthetics over a happy 11-year old?
In five years time will you remember the lack of symmetry or the fact you put placings over people?
How about having a round top table as we are?... x
Me, husband to be, my mum and dad, my h2b's mum and dad and our daughter - 7 in total!
Why don’t you ask her where she would prefer to sit? She might rather sit with her family anyway? X
Circle top table !
This never even crossed my mind 😂
Put something else in place of the 10th person, like a big centre piece, a cards box, or a 'in memory of'. Then it will looked balanced. X
I'm only having us, birth parents, best man and MOH the other bridesmaids, and new wife's ect will be on s table.
The tradition is bride, groom, father of the bride, mother of the bride, grooms mother, grooms father, best man and maid of honor so 8 people x
No rule to say that it has to be odd or even, doubt anyone would even notice.
We're having our mum's and dad, my sister who is maid of honour and my partners brother who is 1 of the best men. The other three bridesmaids and best man are sitting elsewhere xx
Why don't you ask her where she wants to sit? She might prefer to sit with her dad, bring so young
We are having 11 at our top table, and it will be fine. Try not too worry, it will be perfect for you & h2b xx
Aren't your parents suppose to be on top table along with best man?!?!?!!
If you're so bothered about "aesthetics () Why not just stick to tradition and that way you'll have the even number you so badly need.
Odd numbers always look aesthetically pleasing to the eye because then you have a "middle focal Point" in this case, as there will be four people either side of you, the focal point will be you.
I’m not sure people will be all that bothered or even notice! I’m sure it’s more about whom you want at your top table as in people that mean something to you?
I am having 9 on the top table. Xx
We’re not even having a top table! Literally have no idea why people feel the need to be so specific and ‘traditional’. Do what ever you want, it’s your wedding!
We have nine. Me, husband to be, both my parents, his mum maid of honour her husband best mad and his wife.
I had 13 it never worried me one bit! ️
Does she not know the other bridesmaids and one of them can look after her so she don't miss out. 11 isn't exactly young these days x
We are just having 6 of us on a semi circular table so that h2b and I can chat to our parents on the day. I have 4 bridesmaids and couldn’t decide a maid of honour, so they’re sitting on the guest tables, and the best man is sitting with his family as we thought he would want to sit with his wife and children (he doesn’t agree haha!)
