Sweetheart Table

Before you and your fiance decide where to dine for your wedding reception dinner, be sure to weigh your options to make the best decision for you. A sweetheart table is by far the most popular way for a new husband and wife to enjoy their first dinner together. Combining decorations, flowers, and candles transforms an otherwise ordinary table into a magical spotlight to debut the first meal of a newly married couple. The sweetheart table gives a bride and groom the chance to have a more intimate meal while still being connected to their guests and loved ones during the wedding reception. A couple is easily celebrated and toasted from their special place, and the sweetheart look is sure to make some fabulous pictures.

It doesn’t take much to make a sweetheart table look incredible!

Private Dinner

Private dinners are an excellent option for couples who don’t necessarily love to be in the spotlight. More introverted individuals especially benefit from a slight getaway from the action of their wedding reception dinner. Following a ceremony where all eyes are on the bride and groom, it’s completely understandable to want some time to be alone with your new spouse. Your first dinner together as a couple makes a superb time for that! After all, it’s difficult to eat when your guests are toasting and demanding that the happy couple stop to kiss every two minutes! A private dinner also offers a more intimate environment. If that’s what you’re after, this one might just be for you!
