I personally like sweetheart tables. I think they are very sweet.

I like them because you probably won’t spend much time sitting to begin with. Plus you won’t get much alone time with your new husband and a sweetheart table lets you two have your first meal as a married couple together.  Then when you’re up and dancing/greeting guests you don’t have a head table or a table with family members who look abandoned.

I think I’d feel awkward and on display with people watching me eat.

I also like the distance from everyone else, it gives you a lil bit of time to be together by sitting away from everyone and not be pulled in every which way direction when you’re trying to eat or whatever else you may be doing.

I really like the idea.  It gives us a few moments alone-ish (I know we won’t get long) and it keeps me from feeling bad for seperating the bridal party from their dates and friends.

I felt the same way as you that a sweetheart table was…..antisocial.  We sat at a regular round table with some select people.  The table was front and center and it was really the best option for us.  We got to chat while eatting, it didn’t feel elitist and it worked with the seating plan super well.

I think it’s cute. If I were having a traditional wedding/reception I would get one. I think the head table can get overly formal sometimes.

We had a sweetheart table. Allowed us a chance to talk and enjoy our meal. Don’t think folks were staring at us… They were chowing down eating too. It also allowed those in the wedding to sit with their family or dates/spouse. I’ve been in a wedding before and appreciated being able to sit with my date.

We are doing one, it’s one of things we are looking forward to the most! We are having dinner musicians so I feel like most people will be watching them and we just want that time for the two of us

I don’t really like them, personally.  I also think they feel antisocial.  I tried to think of more things I don’t like about them but it really all came down to feeling anti social.  Haha.

It doesnt matter, we didnt spend more than 10-15 minutes at it anyways to inhale our dinner before we got up to go around to tables, talk to guests and dance.  It was actually nice to be alone for those few minutes to get a chance to breathe and eat.

We had a sweetheart table and I am so happy we did. It was one of the only moments we had semi alone together. It was really nice to eat together just the two of us at our own special table.
