We were planning to do a sweetheart table since we didn’t really plan to spend much time sitting at a headtable anyway, but I think this is a cool idea. Sometimes I don’t think things all the way threw though and miss possible downsides. Can anyone think of a reason that this might not be a great idea? We will have between 80-100 guests.

oh no! please move this to receptions or whereever would be most appropriate. Opps. Sorry.

I’ve always been told you never get a chance to sit down anyway….

that is so neat! I don’t think it’d work for us, because we’re looking forward to some 1-on-1 time while we eat!

I actually really like this idea. The only thing I’d worry about is the carrying the plates to each table as you move… I’m clumsy and would be scared of tripping/spilling the food on my dress. Easily avoided if your new husband carries both though 😛

I think it’d drive me absolutely nuts, but then again I’m going to have 15-20 tables I think it’s cool for a more cocktail or even dessert type situation, but moving every 5 minutes to a new table while trying to eat dinner at the same time doesn’t sound fun… and I’d totally get tons of stuff all over my dress, guaranteed.

I might feel a little unsocial though, on my wedding day lol, and want a sweetheart table. I don’t know if I would enjoy the rapid sit eat get up sit eat get up sit eat pattern. Hmmm hard to say. I do think guest would LOVE it.

Hmm…I like this idea a lot. Will have to see if it works for us once I make seating chart. I definitely like the idea of him carrying both plates 😛 Glad to know I am not the only clutz!

i sort of did this at my wedding. it worked though because we only had 17 people and 3 tables. we did not have a head table, but our main seats were with our families at one table. but since the other 2 tables had space for 8, but were only like 5 or 6 people at each one, i just rotated freely. although i left my plate at the main table, and just sat with the others in between courses. it was fun!

I think it’s a great idea! Unfortunately we are having too many table for it to work at our reception.

The downsides would be needing 20% more tables, linens, centerpieces, chairs along with the nuisance and lack of relaxation for you.

I think this is a great alternative for some couples. We have 8 attendants so I would feel like they were abandoned. For the right wedding I love this “flirty” idea.

This is a neat idea. I’m going to think about trying it. We’re thinking we’ll have a max of 80 people (destination wedding), so it just might work for us.
Thanks for sharing!!

I love this idea…it wouldn’t work for our wedding but I think it’s great.

it’s a lovely idea, though one that is better suited for smaller receptions. i couldn’t imagine trying to eat and table shop for more than 10 tables during dinner. if you end up with the lower end of your expected guest list, i would definitely think about it!
