We are going to have a sweetheart table and have our wedding party sit with their families. I am not a big fan of having a long banquet table either.

We’re hoping to do a sweetheart table and then seat the bridal party nearby, but with their SO’s.  So we’ll have a sweetheart table, a bridal party plus table (or two, depending on numbers), and an immediate family table, all at the front of the ballroom.

We’re also doing a sweetheart table wiith the bridal party at tables around us.  I want my bridal party to be able to sit with their families.  The sweetheart table is going to be blended in with the regular tables so we aren’t so far away from everyone.

We’re having a sweetheart table with our bridal party seated at a table that’s closest to us then our family.

One of my fiance’s requests was for us to not have a sweetheart table.  So, we’re planning on sitting with my Maid/Matron of Honor, his siblings (who are groomsmen), his SIL (who is one of my BMs) and my brother.  The rest of our bridal party will be seated at the table next to ours.

We’re just sitting at a round table like everyone else. Our dude of honor, best man, one bridesmaid, one groomsman and their SOs are sitting with us. I don’t like the idea of being separated from everyone. You hardly sit down anyway and the sweetheart table would throw off the symmetry of our room.

We’re doing a sweetheart table too. I just feel like its unfair to not allow the bridal party to sit with their guest.

Sweetheart table definitely. I doubt we will be doing much sitting though as we plan to go around to each table greeting everyone, etc. 🙂

We had a sweetheart table and I’m so glad we did it! I’ll share a couple of pics of ours:

Our table was on the side of the room in the center. The groomsmen and bridesmaids sat at 2 guest tables right in front of us and they got to have their dates sit with them at those tables. It worked out perfectly and everyone was happy/comfortable with the arrangements.

I dont like head tables or sweetheart tables.  I just want to sit at a regular table with bridal party and their plus ones.

we were going to just sit at a normal round table with the bridal party and their dates, but we ended up not fitting and doing a sweetheart table while everyone else just sat with people they know. i’m really glad it turned out that way, this way i was able to spend some quality time with my husband at our wedding.

We decided against the sweetheart table, because we wanted to sit with our bridal party and their dates! The banquet style table was a strong possibility for us for a while, although we were thinking of seating people all around it and not all along one side, like it was the Last Supper or something. So, we’re sitting at a round table like everyone else — although it will be a slightly larger one.

We are doing a sweetheart table instead of a head table.  I don’t like that most of the time, your bridal party can’t sit with their dates at the head table. 

We’re hoping the sweetheart table will be great so guests will be more willing to come up and talk if we’re secluded. 

We’re reserving 2 tables for the bridal party to sit at, right next to us!
