With the majority of wedding party seating etiquette, parents aren't seated at the bridal table at all. Generally speaking it's just the wedding party: Bride to the groom's right, maid of honor to groom's left and then boy-girl, boy-girl with the rest of the wedding party at both sides. Parents are placed at a 'table of honor' right next to the bridal party table If this is a smaller wedding and both the bridal party and parents will fit at one table, once the wedding party is seated according to the rule stated above, the parents would begin after them. So it's very possible that you'd end up in the middle of the table just by the numbers. Congratulations on this joyous occasion - May I help with anything else?
