    I wanted a sweetheart table but found I'd have to pay extra for it and we were sort of short on guests for main tables anyway so we just plucked ourselves in there aha.

    I believe we will be going with a head table, but I do love the idea of a sweetheart table

    I'm leaning towards a sweetheart table because I feel like it's the only alone time you get during the reception! We liked the idea of sitting with our bridal party - but it's too hard to converse at a head table with everyone facing out!

    Still haven't fully made a decision though

    Definitely sweetheart table for us. It’s a way to have a semi private moment with your new spouse and it doesn’t feel right to have your bridal party sit away from their families!

    I love the idea of a head table because of how fun it would be! I think logistically, a sweetheart table makes more sense. First reason is for our bridal parties significant others. I can't figure out how to seat them if their BF/GF is up front by me. Plus it's nicer for them since they won't know that many other people outside of our bridal party. A sweetheart table will just fit better on the floor plan as well!

    Sweetheart table! Almost everyone in our wedding party have SOs and it would be weird to not let them sit together.

    I'm still playing this scenario over in my head. I think that I want to have a sweetheart table.

    Haven't decided but we don't have a wedding party so it would be us sitting with our parents.

    Sweetheart table. We want our guest to be able to sit where they're more comfortable with.
