We had a sweetheart table as well and we had to move it for the dances so he couldn’t sit there during the father-daughter dance. There were a couple of extra seats at the table his parents were hosting so he sat there. But you can sit at the sweetheart table if you want, it doesn’t especially matter and no one will be paying attention.

We did not give a speech at our wedding. As far as I’m concerned the less people who have the microphone the better! I’d never even heard of the couple speaking during the reception before weddingbee.

panda_bear3 :  I stood and one of my bridesmaids just happened to come chat with me. We didn’t have a sweet heart table. I wouldn’t worry about feeling awkward. You dad, mom and step-dad will probably be standing with/near you.

We gave a speech at the rehersal dinner. I think in your case it would be nice to thank each table and an over all speech by you and your groom because it will be a nice opener for the MoH and Best man speech.

panda_bear3 :  You can sit or stand. It really doesn’t matter and no one will be watching you. I’d probably sit if the table wasn’t far from the dance floor.

You certainly don’t need to do a toast as well. The reception is a thank you and the table greetings also suffice. If you wanted to give a brief toast, you certainly could, but it’s not expected.
