Remember how I grabbed some bread ends at the hotel prior to the reception because I was so starving? Well, needless to say, sitting down to dinner was such a welcome treat. It was the first time I was able to sit back after the hectic schedule of the day and the first time I was able to get a good look at the reception hall. I could not have been more pleased.
Bucking tradition, Mr. Hawk and I chose to sit with our families at the head table, and I’m so glad we made that decision. It’s not that I don’t love my bridesmaids and groomsmen, but with my family traveling from California, I was so thankful to have those extra moments with my parents.
I vividly remember the conversations I had with Momma Hawk about the day, and our wedding party was able to mingle with their other friends. Plus I actually had the opportunity to eat.
Have you given though to your head table setup? Will it be family or your wedding party? Are you planning on a having sweetheart table?
