i was so impressed with this site after my first post on here.. I wish i had found this site many many months ago , it has been by FAR the most helpful site ive seen for any bride ! !
well to my 2nd question…
Im curious what more brides are doing now.. Ive always LOVED the idea of the bridal table .. with all the party set at one table . BUT ive heard alot of people not doing this anymore. that they have the bridal party sitting amongst the rest of the guest ?
What are you bees doing? Bridal table? or Not ?

We had a sweetheart table and I loved it! I didn’t want to have everyone watching me eat (I’m a little self-conscious about being in front of people sometimes), so we had a sweetheart table mixed in with the guest tables (near the front and center still though). We have several guests comment about how nice it was that our first meal together as husband and wife was just us.

We are doing a bridal party table. Our bridal party are our closest friends and I want to spend as much of the night with them as possible.
Plus they are a whole lot of a fun to hang out with.
We aren’t doing a long table with everyone on one side though. We’ll be sitting all the way around the table so we can actually talk.

We plan on doing a sweetheart table, not so much because we want to sit alone (we won’t be sitting much, anyway) but more because we want everyone in our bridal party to be able to sit with their significant others, so they’ll be scattered around at various tables.

I want a sweetheart table, because I feel like Fiance and I will spend the whole night talking to other people, that I want to sneak as many moments with just him that I can!

LOVED having a sweetheart table! We rarely ever sat down but this way people know where to find you if you are not at the dance floor. You dont feel obligated to walk around to every table formally and get a chance to absorb what the wedding is all about- you and your groom as husband and wife!
I guess it’s just a matter of preference.

We are doing a sweetheart table 🙂 We want our bridal party to enjoy the reception with their significant others as well.

We’re doing a sweetheart table. I don’t plan on sitting very much and I certainly don’t need to force my wedding party to sit away from their SO’s the whole night, especially if I’m not going to be sitting down very much.

We are having a long bridal table, and the bridal party will have their significant others join us at the table. We are having a small party though, so that makes it easier.

I really struggled with this and we just decided on the sweetheart table. I have to say I do love seeing a bridal table but it our 15Th anniversary so we have dont have a bridal party but were going to do a head table but then who would we choose??? To complicated! We went with the sweetheart table.

We had a sweetheart table and I was very happy with our decision. It was the only part of our reception that we were able to talk, just the two of us. Also, our wedding party included siblings, cousins, college friends, and high school friends. I knew his brother wanted to sit with family, my cousin would like to sit with other cousins, and high school friends with hs friends and college with college friends. It was much easier this way, because our bridal party was able to visit with the guests they hang out with or would like to catch up with.

We also did a sweetheart table mostly because I wanted our bridal party to be able to sit with their significant others. We sat down to eat for only about 20 minutes but it was nice being able to spend just a few moments by ourselves. I also think having the sweetheart table helped as guests left us alone until we came and visited them at their own tables 🙂

WOW ! i really didnt think that it would be a sweetheart majority … But is def so glad to hear that !
NOW !!!! how about this. were the bridal table was to be set its in the corner of the room set up about 3 feet in a small u shape , it then has a step down with another larger u table .. if we set up our sweetheart table alone up top ? then had the bridal party with ALL the dates able to sit next to them ?? do you think that wouldnt be so bad?? i mean your really only sitting for the meal and i know my group of friends if the musics going its gonna be hard to even get them to eat ! Lol thanks again

Our venue sets up two long tables with one on risers. Me and the Mr will be with the Best Man and Maid/Matron of Honor at the shorter of the two tables (on the riser), and the rest of the bridal party (10 people) will be at the longer table in front of us.
I think this works perfectly because the Maid/Matron of Honor is my sister and the Best Man is my BIL (and of course FI’s best friend). The 4 of us are super close, so I’m glad they’ll be right there with us.
