I’ve only been to one wedding that had a sweetheart table instead of a head table. 

From what I remember…the bridal party seemed to be seated with their friends/gf/bf etc.  They were spread out between all the tables pretty much, as if they were any other guests at the wedding.  If I did this though, I’d make sure all their tables were close to mine for speeches and such. 

But like I said, I’ve only been to one wedding that did it this way.

We are having a sweetheart table as well. Our reception will be open seating except for a few tables reserved around us for family, and the bridal party is family so they will be there as well. I would think that your bridal party would want to sit with their friends/dates, but just make sure they know to sit close to you, or assign them seating around you.

We had a sweetheart table as well and for the bridal party, I basically sat them where it made the most sense to me.  The gm’s were both family (my husband’s brothers) and I seated them at the table for DH’s immediate family.  My Maid/Matron of Honor was a friend and I sat her at the table next to my immediate family with some other good friends of mine.  My other Bridesmaid or Best Man is my SIL (married to my brother) and she and her daughter (flower girl) were seated with my immediate family.  I wanted everyone to be able to sit with their families/friends, so this was the best way for me to do so.

I split up the bridal party and seat them with mutal friends/family.  There’s no real reason to seat them together unless at a head table with you if they aren’t really that close.

We are having a sweetheart table. On either side of us will be 2 round tables for the bridal party and thier guest/SO.  Everyone else will be able to sit where they would like.

We did a sweetheart table and then  broke the bridal party up so they could sit with people they knew.

This would have been useful last week when I was doing our seating arrangement!  We’re having a sweetheart table and we just mixed our bridal party in with people they are friendly with.  I like it because then the guests of the bridal party aren’t by themselves the whole night!

We are seating the bridal party wherever we would seat them if they were guests.  A lot of them are family, so they will be with other family members, and the ones that are friends will be with their SO’s and other friends.  For me, this was one of the major bonuses of the sweetheart table, because we’re not leaving all the bridal party members’ guests alone.

Everyone in our bridal party is either family, or married. So we are doing a sweetheart table, with four bigger round tables around us, full of family and bridal party members.
