My FI really doesn’t want a sweetheart table. However, I’m not sure who we would sit with. Should we sit with the wedding party or our family? Also, I’ve seen some photos/ videos during the toast and they all seem to show the couple at a sweetheart table. Did you you get good reaction shots during the toast?
Show me your non-sweetheart tables!!!

We sat with our wedding party at a traditional head table. I guess in a way, we had a mini “sweetheart” built in with our color contrast of linens! Hope this helps.
Oh and toast reactions:

@GroovyHippieChick: Thanks for the bump! I was too shy. 😉
@pengoala: I love how you had the different color table cloth to differentiate. Where was the table placed in the room? Right at the front or off to the side?

Sweetheart tables are acutally a fairly new trend. Traditionally, the bride and groom sat with the bridal party at a head table (long table where everyone sits on one side and faces the rest of the guests, usually across the dance floor). I’ve also been to wedding where the bride and the groom sat with the bridal party but just at a regular table. If your tables are big enough I would also recommend letting your bridal party sit with their significant others. And it’s also okay to divide up the bridal party if it’s too big to fit at one table!

I am still contemplating if to do a sweetheart table or a traditional headtable
