@Miss2Mrs101913:  I don’t think it will be awkward at all! usually the girls sit your left and the boys sit to the grooms right (or vice versa). The girls can chat umungst themselves while the boys do the same. I usually suggest having a sweetheart when most of your party is married with children. No matter what you choose though should be perfect!

This may be a dumb question, but what is the difference between the two?

I think sweetheart tables are more intimate. We loved ours and actually felt like we got to spend time together and soak in our amazing day.

@Miss2Mrs101913:  Thanks for the info.

The venues FI and I went to all referred to the sweetheart table as the “dais”. Maybe that’s a regional thing lol

My FI is adamant about not wanting to sit away from everyone else, so I think we’ll be having a head table instead.

I haven’t seen anyone do a head table in over a decade.

We are doing a modified head table, so bridal party dates and parents can sit with us. And it’s not just a big long rectangle with us all on display during dinner.
