A popular favorite modern reception trend is the sweetheart table. A sweetheart table is an alternative to a table your who wedding party sits at. You can have your wedding party sit with their significant others at a few tables, which they will really appreciate!

A sweet heart table just two chairs or a love seat for the newlyweds. It’s quite romantic.  It gives the couple time alone not to just eat, but also have private conversations.

Here are three tips for a sweetheart table.

  • Make sure that your table is large enough to hold two place settings, a centerpiece, decorations and the meal with room for the bride’s bouquet.
  • Ensure that the chairs are quite comfortable.  You can add padding or pillows or even use a loveseat.  You want to be comfortable the entire wedding, not just the meal.
  • Make sure the background is beautiful.  You can use the background that’s there or embellish what’s there by putting up flowers, garland, etc.
  • Place the table in the center of the room.  this ensures most everyone can see the couple and take pictures.
  • You can also place a bell on this table that family and friends can ring – where you two will kiss.
