Creating a romantic sweetheart table

Oh the sweetheart table, it’s the place you and your spouse will enjoy your first meal as husband and wife and a very special and romantic start to your lives, so get ready for some glass clinking. It’s a little different in that it is a more intimate setting because it’s just you and your husband rather than the whole bridal party. Though like any other part of your wedding, the sweetheart table deserves much attention.  It’s very important because it’s where you will be seated for part of the night while enjoying great food and entertainment, so decorations are a must. The main thing to remember when choosing how to decorate your sweetheart table is that you want it to stand out from all other tables in the room. No one should forget that you two are the VIPs for the day.

So first, the location is important as you want to be able to see all your guests and for them to see you, so front and center facing all your loved ones is best. Second, to make your table stand out use things like a different colored table cloth, a slightly different or more extravagant arrangement, or a beautiful backdrop such as billowy linens or scenery to name a few. Also it is becoming popular to add a banner across the table front, names or initials on the back of chairs, or other ways to personalize your table. These are a few amazing pictures that we’ve chosen as good examples of our suggestions, like the beautiful flower décor on the back of the chair. As well as the country style wood bride and groom chair labels; we think these are amazingly creative ideas and would make great additions to your sweetheart table. Are you planning to have a sweetheart table, how will you make yours stand out?
