A lot of couples today are opting to do sweetheart tables at their reception versus having the whole bridal party sit together. We did a sweetheart table and I personally love the idea of having the bride and groom have their own little table together. All eyes are truly on the two lovebirds they should be on for that day! Not to mention, my only problem with having your whole bridal party sit together is that if they bring a guest, that guest is left "alone" sitting at another table for almost half of the reception. But some people like that set up and thats perfectly fine! Each couple should do whatever makes them happy!
