I'm doing the table plan and just wondering if all the bridesmaids have to be on the top table? I have 3 bridesmaids (and 2 juniors) but have only 2 on the top table (my daughter and a friend who has no family there) is there a rule about who sits at the top table or doesn't it matter? TIA
I’m not having any at mine. It’s just being our parents, our two daughters and us. I’m having a ‘wedding party table’ at the front in the center consisting of bridesmaids, best man and their partners, then also grooms brother and sister with their partners 🙂
I only had my MOH on top table (my Little Sis), the other 2 sat on a different table. Equally, I was her bridesmaid and was sat on top table whilst the other bridesmaid sat on another. It is completely up to you, it's your top table
It’s your wedding sit them wherever u want
My MOH and BM day with their partners and children on the table in front of top table.
We have two “top tables”
One for us parents and grandparents
One for bridesmaids and best men with there partners
I have never seen bridesmaids on a top table, except the MOH (chief bridesmaid) but lots of people don’t stick with tradition now. This would be a traditional top table seating plan
Usually just moh. But you can choose who you want, to sit wherever you want, coz you’re the bride!
We're having all parents on their own table, as my partner has step parents on both sides. So as not to leave anyone out or have like 12 people on top table we thought of that. Top table will be us, best man, groom's brother, 2 bridesmaids and groom's 2 children (my soon to be step sons ) It's up to you really...
I had 2 bridesmaids on the top table the other one sat with her daughter and husband & same with groomsmen.. do what u want they will be happy to be there whatever x
I’m only having my made of honour and best man along with my parents and partners parents on top table x
I don’t think it matters now. Especially with more mixed families. Both my parter and I are from split families so we’ve gone for
Bride, groom, our two LO, best man, MOH and just both our mums. It was too messy to have all the dads up there too
I'm not, don't want a huge top table! Thinking about just having me, H2B, our mums, my dad, BM and MoH on ours :)
We aren't having anyone but our parents and our children on top table. Bridesmaids, best man and my uncle (giving me away) are all on table 1
I am sure there is no rule. It’s your wedding have it how you want we arnt having any of ours on the top table as we want them to spend the day with their partners and families as well x
Ours would be very large so we have just set ours as being bride, groom and our youngest (2 year old) there is a "tradition" to who sits there but it's your wedding so what YOU BOTH want and pft to everybody else :-)
I don’t think it really matters..we have changed ours around a bit though not doing a strictly traditional wedding.i got told though that it’s the bride and groom the parents on both sides, the best man and the maid of honour that sit on top table
It’s more traditional not to have them on the top table. We have our parents, best man and maid of honour. That’s the traditional table but it’s entirely up to you.
Doesn't matter at all we just had our parents on the top table with us - the bridesmaids et al all sat with their other halves and families.
I dont think it matters. I had my MOH and Best Man at top table. Groomsman and Bridesmaids sat with everyone else
Doesn't matter we're just have is and my parents. Would have his up there too but his dad recently passed and his mum has said she doesn't want to be up there without him. I'm a little upset that she won't be sat with us but whatever is easier for her atm. But I go off topic, I wouldn't say it matters.
We are just having us two .. was too complicated haha
I only had my maid on honour on the top table and sat all others together on one table but I had 5.
I was bridesmaid recently my mums wedding and I didn't sit at the top table, there were no issues :D the top table was the bride and groom best man and best man's wife, brides oldest brother and his wife and mother of the groom. And everyone else sat wherever the bride wanted :)
My top table is going to be super unusual due to family, so just do what you want. Not everyone can do the traditional set up so its not uncommon to have whoever you want on the top table (if you choose to have a top table)
There's no rules when it comes to YOUR wedding day! My top table plan is me and H2B, our daughter and our parents. Best man's other half doesn't know anyone at our wedding so decided they should sit together and my maid of honour is mother to 4 of my bridesmaids and page boy, so she's sitting with them! You do as you want and have who you want sat with you. Or even don't do a top table, plenty of people don't bother these days!
We just had me my husband and our 2 children xxx
We've decided to have just us, our 2 children, best man and maid of honour.
As fiancé's parents split and remarried. And if we had all parents and partners included we'd have a top table of 16 people!
So I've done family tables of he's mum, husband etc. My family on 1 table and he's dad and grandparents on another table as no-one gets on 😂
On our top table we had us , bride's mum , other Half's sister and husband , my brother as he gave me away as I lost my dad , & best man & wife ......
Had 5 bridesmaids , 1 i placed on the table with my siblings , & then I placed all the others onto another table as bridesmaids table .....
Your wedding , your choices ....
I just have my and my Grooms parents and the best man. The bridemaids and maid of honor are with their partners and other close family members on the closest table to the top table.
Thanks everyone you've been very helpful 😊
I would say no. have up there who you want aslong as its your choice theres a chance your always going to upset somebody x
