Happy Friday, lovelies! Emma here. 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) and has just two chairs for the newlyweds. 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 enjoy one-on-one conversation during dinner with your new spouse. It’s quite romantic. In this post, we’ve rounded up three sweetheart table tips to inspire you. And we want to know: are you having 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 many photos of the happy couple. Make sure your backdrop looks great!

I’m having a sweetheart table! Although it’ll probably be pretty low key so they can move it out of the way after dinner and make more room for dancing! I just love the idea of them, you get a few moments alone with your new spouse and I feel that it’s more comfortable in the wedding party. Generally they have dates who then get stuck eating with a bunch of people they may not even know because they came with someone in the bridal party and they are stuck up at a head table. Thanks for sharing!
