I need some advice on whether we should have a head table or a sweetheart table. No one in our bridal party is dating or married to anyone on the other side. And 3 out of my 4 girls do not know any of the guys in my fiance’s side of the bridal party (Two of them will be bringing their husbands who do not know anyone for the most part).
Would it be awkward to have a head table? Anyone ever been in this situation as a bridesmaid??

@Miss2Mrs101913: I don’t think it will be awkward at all! usually the girls sit your left and the boys sit to the grooms right (or vice versa). The girls can chat umungst themselves while the boys do the same. I usually suggest having a sweetheart when most of your party is married with children. No matter what you choose though should be perfect!

This may be a dumb question, but what is the difference between the two?

@stargazer102706: Sweetheart table is just my fiance and I… Head table is us plus the entire bridal party.

I think sweetheart tables are more intimate. We loved ours and actually felt like we got to spend time together and soak in our amazing day.

@Miss2Mrs101913: Thanks for the info.
The venues Fiance and I went to all referred to the sweetheart table as the “dais”. Maybe that’s a regional thing lol
My Fiance is adamant about not wanting to sit away from everyone else, so I think we’ll be having a head table instead.

I haven’t seen anyone do a head table in over a decade.

I’m doing both semi lol, we are having the round sweetheart table in the middle with the rectangle table on each side of our sweetheart table for the wedding party.

We are doing a modified head table, so bridal party dates and parents can sit with us. And it’s not just a big long rectangle with us all on display during dinner.
