Thursday Tips + Tools: A Pretty Table For Two

Thursday, November 1, 2012

So much thought is put into many other aspects of the wedding that when it comes to setting up the Sweetheart Table, it oftentimes is left up to the florist or wedding planner to make suggestions. I'm so glad to see less requests for traditional head tables as I feel the bridal party should have the freedom to sit with the other guests while the newlyweds enjoy some intimacy. 

There are many ways to personalize this small space and tie in your theme or color scheme to create a picture perfect scene without the clutter: add your initials on the table, display a favorite quote, hang a sign on your chairs, a lovely backdrop, low flower arrangement or a few candles and voila- instant awesomeness! 

I love the idea of these large, plush vintage chairs pushed closer together of course!

Romantic lighting drapes overhead, with your personal table sandwiched in between two long rectangular tables for an elegant rustic vibe. 

I've seen half-moon, circle and mini rectangles often used for a sweetheart table. This vibrant, square table for two is set up quite nicely.

A pretty backdrop adds some flair to a quaint sweetheart table.

A little signage that says it all, combined with the bride's bouquet to finish it off saves money not having to order an extra arrangement and keeps it sweet and simple!
