Silly question, perhaps – but why won’t the venue do a sweethearts table?

I think sounds like a great idea 🙂

Shame your venue wont do a sweetheart table, what’s their reasoning?  Or is it “too difficult” for them (aka they can’t be bothered)?

It’s strange that your venue won’t do a sweetheart table. You’re paying for this event so you’d think they’d want to make you happy. How hard is it to set up a small square table as opposed to an enormous table big enough to fit a dozen people? I’d ask again and push the topic if a sweetheart table is what you really want.

As for your idea, I think it’s great. We sat at a standard round banquet table (like the rest of our guests) with our parents and DH’s brother/SIL. It was hands down one of the best wedding decisions we made. I got a lot of crap about it since some people didn’t think it would be as special but it’s our wedding, the whole thing is special. It was nice to get to spend some extra time with those closest to us.

@allieluvs21: could they put a sweetheart table where the other tables are (not on the stage)? That way, you could still sit with your new husband and not worry about the rest of the seating.

re: the stage – do you have to have something on it?  If it’s covered, does that mean the floor is covered or are their curtains that will be closing it off?  

Maybe post a picture if you have it, so we can give you some ideas…. the last wedding I went to had a stage like area – in the middle they put the DJ (so he was above everyone) and in the corner they put a table with presents on it.  I thought it was a little odd to have the presents on display like that – but after looking at it once (and the room filled up with people) I didn’t give it a second thought.
