    Sweetheart table plus our two kids (though they may elect yo sit with grandma). I want my MOH and the BM to sit with their SOs who don’t really know anyone other than FH and I.

    I like the idea of the sweetheart table, that way we can have our own “alone” time.

    We are not having a wedding party, so we might just end up with a sweetheart table by default, although we also like the idea of sitting with our parents.

    King's Table! We're going to have all the bridal party and their immediate families sit together! My old roommate just got married and had this. They had about 40+ people at the table, and it stretched the full size of the room. I loved it!

    We are doing a sweetheart table! Just easier so that significant others can eat next to one another. No awkward seating issues next to strangers. Just easier. Plus I want it to be special and have a little of "one on one" time with my groom. Even if it is still in presence of everyone. LOL plus we arent big talkers while we eat so it will keep things going fast.

    We decided to do a sweetheart because it was getting too complicated separating couples & families. Or else we might have had the worlds longest King's table lol.

    Sweetheart table for us! As others mentioned, we don't want to have people away from their dates/spouses etc. But also gives us at least a few minutes to ourselves Smiley smile

    Sweetheart! His GM's and my BM's all have spouses/significant others that are not in the wedding party. I'd feel bad making them sit apart.

    Sweet heart, my wedding is so small that if we did a head it'd be half the people in attendance

    I really want a King table but we have 8 bridesmaids and 8 groomsmen, so with the few that have dates it would be too much. I'm thinking just me, FH, MoH and BM? Both Moh and BM are single so it would just be the 4 of us.

    We're doing a head table. The space won't allow for a sweet heart table. And besides, when asked to be a part of the wedding party everyone knew what all was involved, including being separated from their SO for the meal.

    We are having a head table - mainly to accomodate more tables throughout the ballroom. 3 less tables with a sweetheart table.
