Does the top table have to even, ? I have two sets of parents and my partner has just his mum and dad and best man on his side. That makes 9 on the top table. I really don’t want to add anyone else. BM’s and MOH are with their partners and other close family members x
Hi it is up to you really:)
Not at all - we had 11. Have whatever you want, it's your wedding
We had 11. It's your table and as long as you're happy with the set up xx
Nope mine wasn’t even. We had the two of us, my Dad and StepMum, my Grandma and Hubby’s parents. Have it however you want it to be ️ x
I had me my husband both sets of parents and our 3 kids so 9 and worked fine xx
We’re having a top round table instead just out of preference... there’ll be 11 so won’t notice how many on either side anyway.x
We had the 2 of us.... all family on next table
Was so nice cos we got time to talk
We didn’t the rest of the day
Round table for us. I've worked hundreds of weddings and I always feel awkward about the top table so a round means no one feels 'in show' and doesn't have to be even
Your wedding hun, have it how you want it. I had bride, groom 2 witnesses 3 bridesmaids and my son who gave me way
I'm the same! I have parents and bonus parents on my side, me and my husband and then his parents...its completely up to You! I personally wouldn't have it any other way xx
Which rule book do people read before posting here? Is there a Wedding Police who arrest people for uneven top tables or not having a Matron of Honour? Why do people think there are Wedding Laws for what is basically a big party that you're paying for yourself? 😐
You have what you want! We are having 7 people and not even having best man or maid of honour
I have the same issue, so my top table will be myself, the groom, MOH and BM x
Parents will be sitting with relatives they know so they're comfortable x
It’s up to you!! I think people but too much pressure for their weddings to be pleasing to everyone but you’re the most important 😊😊
I just happen to like it being equal - but due to circumstance that didn’t happen! But it’s your day and you need to make you happy 😊😊
We would have had an odd number so instead we are having a sweetheart table just for the two of us and then everyone else on bigger tables.
We've got 8 on ours. All 3 sets of parents are on their own table (We would've had too many if we put them all on top table) We're having our 2 kids, 2 bridesmaids, best man and grooms brother
We had both sets of parents (my husband's step parents didn't sit on the top table) both our children and our maid of honour. Which means we also had 9 :)
Its up to you I had 9 on my top table and it worked out just fine :) , good luck c
I had 7. No parents because of issues my side, but 2 bridesmaids, 2 best men, us and my nephew (he was the only kid at he wedding and my sister was a bridesmaid!) The whole thing is up to you.
We are having me my fiancé our girls best man and maid of honour otherwise there would of been 12 of us on the top table
You do what you want to do. You can have as many or as few as you want. My first wedding we had 11, second we had 8. It is your day so it is up to you.
The only thing is HAS TO BE is how you want it 😊 we don’t want one so we’re not having one 😊
We have 11 on top table. That doesnt include bridesmaids but does include 2 best men x
We have us, our 3 kids and our best man that’s it on ours
Nope! Mine wasn't. Though this drove me nuts as I don't like odd numbers xx
We have 9.
I have 11.
Myself and h2b, our son, my parents, my brother and gf, his parents, his sister and husband.
Ive sat our son inbetween us (hes 7) cos it made me feel better when looking at the table plan to balance it out, but we may end up swapping around on the day x
We had one table for everyone! Granted there where only 24 of us but one table and no plan!
We had children before we married so we had just us, best man and our children at the top table then parents sat nearest the top table xx
We have 7. I think it would be a problem if lopsided ( I assume you wanna sit in the middle so would look odd 5 on your side 2 on his or vice Cerda) but one extra on One side should be fine.
Had our wedding a little over a week ago, we also had 9, it’s fine, it works just fine x
My parents have split up and got new partners so I put my parents on their own tables right in front of the top table with grandparents, aunties, uncles etc on and just had my MOH, bridesmaids, BM and groomsmen on so there were 8 of us in total.
We have 7 I think it's ok as long as they are evenly spread either side of you both
Do what works for you x
