It’s your wedding day. You should stand out from the rest of the guests. I would go with sweetheart table.

MelissainNC:  What about a table with you guys and your parents?  Then you’re not playing favorites, and your wedding party can sit with their friends.  I’m not a fan of sweetheart tables, either–you have the rest of your lives to eat just the two of you.

I’m not really a fan of head tables. It’s too “on display” for me. 

What about sitting with your parents, FIs parents, and perhaps Maid/Matron of Honor and BM? Of course this gets complicated if any parents are divorced… so I’m not sure if that would work for you.

I’m doing a sweetheart table. The day is about us and i like the idea of having some semi private time together during the craziness of the wedding for a few minutes.

We didn’t have a bridal party so we just sat at a round table with our best friends and siblings. We did place the table in the middle. People come to celebrate YOUR wedding, so it felt only right to put us in the middle so we can have wasy access to talk with everyone around us.  

It’s completely a personal decision and how you want it. Talk to your Fiance some more. Do a preliminary seating plan and see if space allows for what you envision.

Having a sweetheart table worked out better for our layout anyway, but the only time we sat at the table was to eat and listen to the best man’s speech, so it didn’t really matter in the end.
