Will you and your wedding party have front row seats at a head table at your reception? Or have you decided on a sweetheart table, or another seating selection?

Are you giving the green light to a top table? 馃殾 Or switching up your reception seating?

    My fiance and I are doing green light! We're going the traditional way!

    This is what it's probably going to look like!

    Originally we were going to have our bridal party sit with us but once covid hit we decided it would be the best bet to have a sweetheart table for my husband and I and our bridal party to sit with their household/significant other

    Green light. Not 100% what form it will take in the finalized version until we get all the RSVPs, but definitely going to be one.

    Green light. I'm hoping to make a nice backdrop to go with the head table as well, but haven't decided how I want to go about it yet. Curtains is probably easier, but I like the look of a wood backdrop.

    Greenish light. We're doing a sweetheart table but our bridal party will be at a normal guest table closest to us and the dj/mc.

    Green, we will have a head table, changed from a sweetheart table. Our venue has a large bay window that the head table will sit in front of. So with the tall flowers and such, it will make for some great pictures. FH is fine with this, so that helps have things go smoothly in wedding planning world.

    I'm hoping for red light. I want to eat! I don't love the idea of people watching me while I do it....

    Red. We're going with a king table situation so our our families, bridal party, and their partners can all sit together. We're also not keen on being in the spotlight like that for dinner - it feels like royalty presiding over a banquet hall. *shudders*

    Green light - no wedding party but also don't like the seclusion of a sweetheart table. We will likely have siblings and spouses up there with us.

    Red light. With a less traditional reception and no wedding party we don't need a head table. We might make a sweetheart table or bench so that we have a home base during our reception.

    Red light. We don鈥檛 plan on having a formal dinner. We want to cut the cost down a bit and don鈥檛 care that much. Instead just some finger foods and we will use the time to walk around and talk to everyone.

    Red light. FH and I wanted to share our first meal together as husband and wife with a bit of privacy, so we're going with a sweetheart table.
