Sweetheart Table?

Will you have a Sweetheart Table, or head table?  So what’s a Sweetheart Table?  Well, YOU may know the answer to that question, but to be honest, until I started planning weddings, I didn’t.   A Sweetheart Table is a special table just for the bride and groom.  The official definition of a Sweetheart Table, according to the wedding gurus at the knot, www.theknot.com, is as follows:

“A sweetheart table is a small table set up for just the bride and groom at the wedding reception. The happy couple sits together, facing their guests, with their wedding attendants and families at tables in close proximity. The advantage is that you get to spend time together and enable your wedding party to sit with family and friends. If you’re not comfortable with being the focal point at the wedding reception, you can have a head table. Your head table can be similar to the other reception tables or it can be a dais table (elevated), to stand out. The head table can consist of all the wedding attendants or include the parents, siblings, grandparents and anyone else who is very close to the bride and groom.”

Maggie and Rob had a head table, as did Kenny and I.  I don’t think the newlyweds or Kenny and I would change our choice, but the Sweetheart Table offers perks too.  KK and Tyler have chosen to have a Sweetheart Table.  One thing their wedding coordinator told them, “Commit to taking a moment at the reception to be alone.  Enjoy the happiness around you,  enjoy the music, the dancing, the ambiance.  It’s over so quickly”.  I think a Sweetheart Table allows a couple to do this.  Of course your guests will visit you at your own private little oasis, but hopefully you’ll have a couple of those “Special Moments”…
