We’re reserving two seats on both of our parents’ table to go back & forth.  We wanted to jump back and forth rather than being by ourselves.

Boddy I never thought of that! Good Idea!

The shape of our venue doesnt really allow for a "head table" plus we didn’t want to take our bridal party away from their SO’s so we’ll have a sweetheart table.

But I like boddy’s idea!

My FH doesn’t want all of the attention that a head table would bring, so we’re doing a sweetheart table among our guests.

I didn’t want a sweetheart table! I thought it would feel weird for us to be all by ourselves! I like the traditional long table, even though there will be 14 of us there.

Head table gets fed immediately though, so we can eat, then go mingle with our guests. It’s nice we’re having a plated dinner, though, so it won’t take long for everyone to get food. I’ve seen how torturous buffet lines can get

we’re having one, because we couldn’t make a decision about who we wanted to sit with, and we wanted to avoid hurt feelings.

I love the idea of having a sweatheart table. This is your wedding, and you should want to be the center of attention.

We opted for the sweatheart table bc none of our wedding party is with the SOs and we wanted them to be as comfortable as possible. Plus we are anticipating that we will not be at the time very much anyway, as we want to mingle and enjoy our celebration with our guests.

Sweatheart it is…

We are doing a sweetheart table b/c I think the idea is so cute! Also, I second what others have said about their Bridal Party being away from their SO, esp. when their SO doesn’t know anybody else at the wedding and are just sitting at a table with strangers, I would feel bad for my Bridal Party member & their guest!

I liked having a sweetheart table, but it was good and bad that we were near the buffet line!  We got to see everyone but it made it hard to eat more than 1 bite every 2 mins…luckily I wasn’t that hungry anyway!

We are having a sweetheart table!  We don’t have a bridal party, and we don’t want to be sitting for too long because we plan on going table to table during dinner to greet our guests.  I am super excited about it!

We’re having a sweetheart table as well.  I love the idea of sharing our first meal together, just husband and wife.  It’ll hopefully give us a little time to actually talk and relax (and eat!) before the party really starts.

I’m excited about the table hopping, too.  I have a feeling I’m going to spend a good amount of time at the kids’ table!  :o)

We had a sweetheart table. I wanted our bridal party to be able to sit with their SOs and be able to mingle with their other friends at the wedding. I loved having my husband to myself for the few moments we got. My suggestion is to have someone sitting a table next to you to be your "guard" and shoo people away. We couldn’t even eat two bites of our food without being interrupted. I wish I had assigned my sister to watch out for those people and say "they will be around to each table after they have a chance to finish their meals and spend some time together"

We’re doing a head table.  I felt like I would feel more "on display" if it was just a sweetheart table.  Plus, I wanted to be able to sit with our friends during dinner.
