I am wondering everyone’s thoughts on having one long head table vs. a sweetheart table? I think I want to do the sweetheart table because this allows my new husband and I to actually have time to eat, have a 10 minute conversation and our wedding party is able to sit with their spouses/dates.
I also feel like it’s awkward sitting at a long table where they’d only be able to talk to the people on their left and right. We will eat while everyone else eats and then do the typical wedding stuff. I have 2 bridesmaids from out of state who don’t really know my friends here and I know they’d like to sit with their husbands so they don’t just sit at a table alone and awkward. haha
Anyway, just wanted to hear everyone else’s ideas… 🙂

I did the sweetheart table and I recommend it 100%.
DH and I were actually able to enjoy each others’ company ‘alone’ (as alone as you can be in a room full of 150 of your closest friends and family) and actually got to ‘catch our breath’ and spend some time talking to each other.
Not only that, but the members of our wedding party were able to sit amongst the guests with their SOs, so there weren’t any dates that felt awkward/left out amongst a bunch of strangers.

I agree with the sweetheart table. Then you don’t have to worry about fitting dates, etc at a head table. Plus it’s nice just to sit as a couple!
You should add a poll to this one, I bet you would get a lot of feedback.

I’m planning on a sweetheart table. Most of my girls have men in their lives that dont know a lot of ppl there. Yes they will interact with ppl, but I know when I go to weddings I’m more comfortable with my FI near me.

We are doing a rectangular family style head table, with people on all sides like you would do at home. Dates included! I like it because it isn’t so exposed like a head table or sweetheart table is, and we get to eat with people we are close to.
