We are doing a sweetheart table! I want to spend some time with my new Husband alone while eating and it gives our bridal party a chance to sit with their dates and not have to be “displayed” all night! I think it makes everything easier!

We’re doing something in the middle.  We’ll be sitting at a normal round table with my two MOH’s and their dates and the Best Man and his date, and the rest of the wedding party will be at other round tables with their dates.

We did the giant head table, but for you, I think a sweetheart with the 3 girls would be super sweet! ๐Ÿ™‚

sweetheart table! 

i prefer when the bridal party is disbursed among their friends, but we did contemplate sitting with our parents.  my parents are divorced though, so this wouldn’t have been very comfy.

I would prefer a sweetheart, but Fiance wants a head table, so this was an easy compromise. ๐Ÿ™‚

We did a sweat heart table. For one we wouldn’t want to “force” our wedding party to sit together and not with their SOs and we wouldn’t have a table large enough to fit our wedding party + their SOs. We liked having a sweatheart table because we were able to get our food first and chow down so we could make our rounds and what not. And it was the only time Darling Husband and I were together during the reception.

We’re doing a sweetheart table. We’re not having a bridal party, and theres no on else I would want sitting up front and center with us.

We did a modified head table.  We had a long rectangular table extending from the front/centre of the room that we sat at the head of, with round tables all around.

We were able to actually talk with the wedding party and eat not on a stage!  It was perfect!

We’re sitting at a regular table with our wedding party.  We’ll probably have 10 mins of private time before dinner so we can eat and be together and then join everyone at the table.  I want to spend time with my friends and family–I don’t get to see them often and so I would like to sit with/near/around them.

we are doing a sweetheart table. I’ve been to 2 wedddings where my SO was in the wedding, it made it hard because I was sitting with people who I didn’t know (I’m more on the shy side) and we didn’t see each other at all. I think that a sweetheart table would allow the party to sit with their dates and like bees have said not be on display..
