One of my favorite modern reception trends is a sweetheart table. A sweetheart table is an alternative to the traditional head table, where your entire wedding party sits together. If your wedding party is too large or your reception space doesn’t allow for a head table, a sweetheart table may be right for you. It’s also a great option if you want to just, you know, sit with your new spouse and enjoy one-on-one conversation during dinner. It’s quite romantic.
In this post, we’ve rounded up three tips to inspire you. And we want to know: are you going to have a sweetheart table or head table?
Sweetheart Table Tips
Every sweetheart table should have these three things:
1) A comfy set of chairs — or better yet, a loveseat
2) Cozy pillows
And those are sequined and lovely, but we also think a more personalized option is a good fit. Like these handmade pillows we spotted over at LaRae Boutique:
Besides, they’ll look adorable at home in your room after the big day — and you know we love dual-purpose decor!
3) A stunning backdrop
Guests are going to be taking a lot of photos of the happy couple. Make sure your backdrop looks great!
