    At some point during your planning, your coordinator may ask; Sweetheart table or head table? Unsure what you and your fiancé prefer? Here are a few things to consider about the two table options.

    Sweetheart Table

    – A sweetheart table is a small intimate table for 2. The newlyweds sit together and enjoy their reception with friends and family in close proximity.

    – This allows the 2 of you to spend a little time together.

    – Enjoy your first meal together as a married couple.

    – Having a sweetheart table allows the bridal party to mingle, sit with their friends or family.

    – If you are not comfortable being the focal point at your reception then a head table is the way to go.


    Head Table

    – A head table allows the couple to be immersed with their bridal party or family.

    – Your bridal party won’t feel separated from the newlyweds.

    – A head table is a way for the couple to honor those who are close to them and have helped them get to their wedding day.
