Which are you choosing: a head table with your bridal party by your sides or sweetheart table for just you and your love? And why?

    We did a sweetheart table because I didn’t want to split up people from their significant others and families.

    We did what i think is called a kings table - it was us, our bridal party and their significant others!

    Head table but only because the significant others of the people that are in the wedding party know other people that we will seat them with. If they didn't then we would do a King's table so no one would be left alone.

    We had only 15 guests, no WP so we all sat at long tables. But as a BM, I hate head tables unless SOs can sit there too. At one wedding my BF sat with strangers who didn’t speak English for an entire 7-course meal. That also caused tension between us even though it wasn’t my decision!

    We are doing a sweetheart table. I feel like the wedding party should be able to sit with their significant others. And also because it’s OUR wedding and we want to be able to be with each other as much as we can.

    We would be doing a sweetheart table for just is, and a head table for family members only.

    We did a sweetheart table. It was simpler that way, and it gave us that time to chat with each other about the day instead of being wrapped up in conversation with others during the meal.

    Neither! We are doing a king's table because we have a small WP anyway and we don't want to separate them from their SOs

    We are having a sweetheart table since we do not have a bridal party. Even if we did, I think we would prefer to sit alone and just suck in everything going on around us.

    Sweetheart table Smiley smile We have many in our bridal party with significant others that would be separated if we didn't. Plus, since there won't be much alone time, we like the idea of sitting next to each other and having our meals just the two of us for at least a small part of the wedding!

    Agreed! We are doing a sweetheart table for that same reason. Plus I’d like to enjoy a dinner with just my husband since most of our night will be spending time with everyone else.

    Went back and forth but we will do a sweet heart. We have a large bridal party and even though most are dating adding everyone’s SO would be a ton and some will want to be with their family or other friends who are invited. Decided to to have a big table that no one was going to stay at for long. Really not even sure how long we’ll use the sweet heart table for

    Sweetheart table to have a little bit of time alone together and to have it just be us two when we listen to the toasts! The rest of dinner we’ll be making table rounds anyways so we won’t be sitting with anyone for a good portion regardless

    Neither! We chose a kings table. It's a long regular table in the center is the room with people seated on both sides.

    Food is a big part of my family culture so it’s important to us that we take the time to sit and eat with everyone. The kings table will have us, our wedding party and their families.
