Reception staging

Is / Has anyone NOT had a sweetheart table at your reception, but kept some sort of staging at the reception--not the whole mandap, but chairs or a backdrop for pictures?  If so, what did you do and did you actually USE that area for pictures at the reception?  Or was everyone too dispersed eating and dancing?

    I did a sweetheart table, but it was on a stage.  We did lighting instead of backgrounds because most of the ones we saw were pretty tacky.    Everyone was dispersed eating and dancing, but we got table pictures without us in it, because we were going around to tables as well during that time :)  We didn't have a set area for pictures, except at the end of the wedding, we used the cushioned chairs without backs, and moved them to the front of the mandap where we could greet the guests.  We used that area for pictures.  See my profile, or I can send you a link (via a personal message) to our photos to get an idea.

    We had our reception the day after our wedding so we did not use the mandap (wedding & reception were at 2 different locations). At our reception, we did have a sweetheart table, on a riser, with custom draping and LED lights behind us.

    We didnt have a sweetheart table, we had white couch on a riser with a low table infront of it. Here is a picture.
