Sweetheart Tables for Two for The Happy Couple April 21, 2018
Today we’re talking all about the most romantic ideas for a sweetheart table. If you’re wondering what that is, it’s a top table just for the two of you and it’s the perfect excuse to steal five moments alone together. It offers a truly special place for you, as newlyweds, to eat, drink, celebrate and soak up the day you’ve spent weeks, months and even years planning.
It allows you to sit apart from your guests while taking it all in – what could be more magical than looking around your wedding venue and seeing everyone you love celebrating your love story. It gives you a chance to step away from the wonderful chaos of your wedding day and we’ve got a huge crush on the idea of a super sweet top table just for two. Plus, it’s fabulously fun to decorate and it will help to tie your theme in together. So, if you’re in need of some inspiration for your sweetheart table, get stuck in…

There are lots of things to consider when it comes to designing your top table for two. First things first, think about your choice of seating. Will you opt for a love seat or a cosy couch, where you can cuddle up and watch the world go by together? Or would you prefer something chic and stylish, such as metal tolix chairs? If you’re having a statement tropical-inspired celebration, peacock chairs will look fabulous. Or perhaps you’re planning a rustic or country barn celebration, in which case wooden chairs will be the perfect fit. Your chairs will set the scene for your sweetheart table so make sure you’re totally happy with your choice.
Use creative lighting to decorate your top table for two. From draped fairy lights hanging above your table, statement light-up letters or an assortment of tea lights and candles, clever lighting can take your sweetheart table from simple to show-stopping.
We just love the thought of creating a spectacular backdrop for your table, an effortlessly stylish way to make your table stand out. A flower wall will work wonderfully if you’re having a country garden or marquee wedding. Hanging foliage hoops are made for the modern bride and groom – opt for a variety of different sized hoops hanging at different heights for the ultimate backdrop.

Transform your top table for two with a glittering gold sequin table runner, an absolute must-have if you’re dreaming of a sparkling soirée that oozes glamour! If you want to give your day an elegant and romantic feel, a soft linen table runner in a muted colour palette will be perfect. Consider using a greenery garland as an alternative table runner if you’re having a minimalist, botanical or industrial wedding day.
There are so many swoon-worthy ways to decorate your sweetheart table we could go on forever. From an abundance of beautiful blooms to gilded lanterns and candlesticks, calligraphy chair covers to luxurious velvet tablecloths, we think a top table for the two is going to be making an appearance at more and more weddings in 2018…
