Wediquette Wednesday: How do we seat our single friends at the reception?

ILLUSTRATION BY MARIANNE ANGELI RODRIGUEZ

Each Wednesday, we tackle wedding etiquette. At times, it’s a reader question or one from a colleague, friend or family member and other times we’ll cover a popular issue. (Note: Questions may be edited for clarity and brevity.) This installment is from New Orleans Bride Magazine’s etiquette columnist, Dee Lane. 

 

Question: Our guest list is tight, so we’re not able to offer our single friends a plus-one. How do we seat them; all at one table or spread out?

Answer: Consider placing a few singles at a couple of different tables across the reception, seating two or three at tables of couples good at including strangers in conversation. However, if this group of singles know each other or have something in common (like hailing from the same city or having attended the same school) feel free to seat them together. Who knows, maybe you’ll get a matchmaking credit down the road.
