If you are having BMs carry flowers you can use their bouquets to add flowers to your sweetheart table.

The family photos on the tables seem a bit weird. Votive clusters are good.

We just did what we had done for the other tables.

@Excited To Bee:  Getting your bouquet to the reception should not be a problem. You take it with you in the car.

One of the prettiest cake tables (but could also be done for sweetheart table) was also the simplest. The bride’s mother had an organza overlay embroidered with the couple’s new monogram in the same color as the organza- in this case it was navy blue embroidery on navy blue organza. The embroidery was done very inexpensively by machine at the local T shirt place.

The overlay was placed so that the monogram was just below the front edge of the table so everyone looking at the couple saw the monogram.

This is NOT that table- just showing what the placement of the monogram would be.

I think that the framed photos would be cute but it might be strange to lump together those that are dead and those that are just absent from the wedding. Bonus: use their wedding photos?

We are doing something like this:http://www.pinterest.com/pin/353321533238144008/

We didn’t want to fork over a whole lot of money for a floral arrangement. I thought the tiny clusters of flowers would add just enough color along the head table (it will be fairly large as it will include our entire bridal party).

Votive candles are also definitely a plus to any decor.

@Excited To Bee:  I think its a nice gesture to have loved ones pictured present at your wedding but I think its a bit odd to have it at your sweetheart table. I would set another area for their photos.


I like the idea of pp mentioned of using you BMs bouquets of even you could place your bouquet in a vase at the head table. Just pick up a vase fro mthe dollar tree and some votives and it would be really chap to display your bouquet!


If you display your bouquet at the sweetheart table you could use your BMs bouquets at the cake table


Here is an example of a brides bouquet in the middle with BM bouquets on the side…..you actually don’t even need vases if you display like this

Our venue decorated our sweetheart table with rose petals and small candles, with my bouquet as the “centerpiece.”

@weddingbound:  We’re doing your first example. I’m just not 100% sure of the logistics, how the flowers will get there after we do all our photos.

@luluvohn:  Designate one person to do it right after the photos…maybe your MOH can do it? Just a thought!

I went to a wedding recently where the bride and groom sat in a sweetheart table and they just had a pretty vase which the bride put her bouquet in, and a candle.  It was certainly enough for such a small table, and it was kind of neat.  At most weddings you really never get to see the bride’s bouquet!
