If your wedding party is too large or your reception space doesn't allow for a head table, a sweetheart table for two may be right for you. It's also a great option if you want to enjoy one-on-one conversation with your new spouse during dinner. But instead of two chairs, get cozy with your groom and share a loveseat or elegant settee. Check out these six romantic takes on this sweetheart-table trend.

Elevated: Make sure all eyes are on you and your new spouse at the reception by elevating your sweetheart table and settee on a platform or stage.
