Monday’s Finding: Let me call you Sweetheart

Once upon a time there was no such thing as a “sweetheart table.” Couples sat at a huge table with the wedding party surrounding them and were required to mingle to the point of near starvation except for that bit of cake they fed to one another. Significant others sat away from their loves who served as attendants; often making for a blah and awkward wedding experience for them both. Not to mention being on display for all to see every kiss, bite of food, and every little move you made. Thankfully, times are changing and the sweetheart table is becoming the norm.

What’s a sweetheart table? Well, it’s a table for two at your reception that allows you both to sit back and experience your day together. It gives the two of you time to eat and be in close proximity to your family and friends without the cross conversation that so often occurs with a head table. Personally, I love them and the proper way to handle a reception with a sweetheart table is to be sure you and your love have some sort of receiving line so that you can thank each of your guests for sharing in your day. Here are some great examples of a variety of sweetheart tables as well as links to Etsy vendors who can help make your sweetheart table shine.
