We’re not having a head table. Mother-In-Law wants to sit with her siblings. Father-In-Law wants to sit with his siblings. My mom and dad want to sit with their parents. I know we’ll be doing a lot of walking around and greeting people, but I want to sit at some point. Where?

Why not do a sweetheart table? A little table for the two of you.

@Aquaria: Are you having a dinner?
Do you have a bridal party?
If yes, you could do a head table in the middle or front of the room. If no, do a sweetheart table. You could make a larger table for family and sit your closest relatives there. Whatever you like!

We’re doing a sweetheart table and scattering the bridal party amongst the other reception tables.

Sweetheart table! Thats what we are doing. It will be nice to just be able to enjoy dinner together, and not have to worry about anyone else for that small slice of evening!

We’re doing a sweetheart table and then a table for the bridesmaids and their +1s and another for the groomsmen and their +1s.

Since we’re spending the next oh 50-60 years together, we aren’t planning on sitting next to one another during the reception. We are having a very casual buffet reception so we will just sit where there is a seat available (no assigned seats either.)
A sweetheart table a great option as well. I did that for my first wedding.

Sweetheart table for just you two.

We did a sweethearts table and most of the weddings I’ve been to recently did that as well. It’s convenient because you get a chance to chat and unwind with Darling Husband during the wedding and it serves as a homebase. You know there’s always a glass of water waiting for you up there as well as food. For example, our caterers left our desserts (we had a dessert buffet) and our hors d’oeuvres at our table (we did tray-passed and if they didn’t leave them there, we wouldn’t have had a chance to get any).

It’s a buffet and we have no bridal party. I think we’d have to supply our own sweetheart table (not that big of a deal). Our venue barely has enough tables for our guests.

@Aquaria: Table for 2 doesn’t have to be that big. Seems like the best option!

@prisigtr: +1 us too, some of the bridal party’s SO aren’t in the wedding, we’re doing it this way so they can sit together & not feel uncomfortable sitting with people they may not know
