When working on seating arrangements, an important decision comes up of either sitting at a sweetheart table or head table. There are many things to consider when making this decision and there is no wrong choice.
Your wedding is a time when all your loved ones come together, some of which you do not get to see often. You will spend a lot of time mingling with guests and will find that to two of you do not get to spend much time together. Having a sweetheart table allows you to have a designated space for you both to spend uninterrupted time taking in the day you have spent so much time planning together. For other couples, they want to spend as much time as they can with family or friends who they do not get to see very often and a head table allows them that.
To keep the planning to a minimum, a sweetheart table means you do not have to work on assigned seating. Typically with a head table, there is assigned seating so your MOH and BM sit closest to you for toasts. Also so your bridal party can seamlessly take a seat following grand entrance. A head table can also grow double in size if your bridal party’s dates join the table. If you strictly have just your wedding party at the head table, their guests may feel left out if they do not know any one else at the wedding.
