When it comes to savoring those quiet moments on your wedding day, sweetheart tables are one of the few spaces where you can actually have some alone time with your *new* spouse. And since it puts your love center stage, you want to make sure it’s styled to a tee. Bring in some DIY spring centerpieces from your guests’ tables or create a new look that stands out from the rest. Any way you style it, dressing your tiny table set for two in fresh colors, personalized touches and floral decor will make your first meal together as a married couple memorable and super photo ready. The spring-inspired sweetheart tables below are full of pretty pastels and delicate details that will encourage you to create a little escape to enjoy your delicious (and well-earned!) wedding meal and a few stolen kisses.
