You’re finally married and you’re walking into your wedding reception (and the rest of your lives together, really) with huge smiles, happy hearts, and hungry stomachs. The trend for the last decade+ has been to sit as a duo and dine at your own private table, and even though feasting tables – one large party table for the couple to cozy up with their bridal party and/or closest family – are starting to get popular, our couples are still super sweet on the sweetheart setup.
And we haven’t steered them away from it, either! We happen to do some stunning sweetheart scenarios here at Leonard’s Palazzo, and we’re ALL about treating the newly-married pair to an experience truly fit for a King and Queen.
Complete with regal tufted chairs that turn out a tasteful throne.
Let’s be honest, your bridal party wants the freedom to get back to their dates, hit up the bar, and hang out with their besties, so don’t worry about them, they’ll be fine to figure things out on their own! It’s more of an opportunity to celebrate your new ‘just-married’ status, and we put together a few extra thoughts on why sitting down with your S.O. (singly) after saying ‘I Do’ is the best idea ever. In case you had any doubts…
You’ll want some time to savor it all with your sweetheart.
And we don’t just mean all the scrumptious sweets and savories. That’s a given. Instead, we’re talking about the precious moments you can steal away with your counterpart, now that the hard parts (wedding planning) are over, the vows have been exchanged, and the smooches have been shared. You can sit beside your person, squeeze his or her hand all night long, and revel in the fact that you’ll be walking out the doors as newlyweds later on. You’ve been waiting for this moment your entire engagement, so cherish it!
From the comfort of your own flower-topped table. You can even work with your florist to set up a beautiful flower wall in back. Say hello to your Instagrammable moment!!
Your table will be visited from the toasts to the tear down.
You won’t have to worry that you’re not spending enough time with your favorite people. You’ll be making your rounds throughout the reception, anyway, and your guests will be stopping by to bring good vibes, best wishes, and lots and lots of kisses for the new Mr. and Mrs. Apart from the dance floor and the dessert bar, your table will be the hottest spot for the squad to squat all night long.
You’ll have the perfect place to put all your gifts.
Not exactly like a moth to a flame, but kind of! With a perfectly-placed sweetheart table, you can take the guesswork away from your guests when it comes to their gifts. We love how some of our couples have dreamed up second-tier tables that serve a great purpose as gift tables. Layer on some magical metallic linens, a few festive votives, and ‘Mr. & Mrs. scripted signage,’ and you’ve curated a gorgeous area for cards and small gifts.
However you’d like to style your sweetheart table, we support you! You’re the King and Queen on your wedding day, so your every wish is our command!
