Ask The Celebration Advisor:
I am having a small wedding in a catholic church with a luncheon to follow. Should our priest be seated at the head table for the luncheon or with the other guests – there are only about 30 people and 6 of them will already be at the head table.
Many thanks / sheila
Celebration Advisor Reply:
The head table at a wedding reception is usually reserved for the bride and groom and their attendants (maid-of-honor, bestman, groomsmen, bridesmaids). Family members (mothers, fathers and grandparents) and special guests (Godparents) are usually seated at the tables closest to the head table. In this case, you can seat your priest with these family members and special guests.
