We did. It’s very common, it’s called a sweetheart table.

If you mean, sitting together at a separate table, then yes, that is what we did. It worked out well and we didn’t have to worry that we would offend anyone by not sitting with them at their table. If you mean sitting a part at separate tables, then I would think that a little strange because you are getting married and it is supposed to be a celebration of the start of your new life together.

LOVED our sweetheart table!  It was so nice to have some “alone” time!

yup, we are, except we’re also having our kids sitting with us.  

Unless we go total medieval on everyone, then it’ll change things around a lot, lol.  We’ll know for certain about that next month!

@CatyLady: Sweetheart tables have been growing in popularity here in the states. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re less common in Britain. If it makes you feel any better, I didn’t know what a sweetheart table was until my friend got married last year and said she was having one!

IDK what other people think, but I want a table on stage for just me and my groom and no one else. The day is about us. So we will sit alone. The bridal party will be allowed to sit directly on the floor in front of us or whereever they would like.

I would highly recommend a sweetheart table setting. We did it for our wedding and our wedding party had reserved tables just below us. It made it nice because they were able to sit with their dates who weren’t in the wedding. The location we had our wedding/reception at actually had us up on a tiny stage 😉 it was probably about 6-8 inches off the floor- it was cute, lol.

We did a sweetheart table as well and it worked out perfectly for us!  🙂
