Head Tables

Wedding Party Head Tables

Choosing the style of the Head Table for the wedding party is a matter of choice and space.

V-Shaped Head Table

The design of the V-shaped Head Table allows the Bride and Groom to see their entire wedding party while eating compared to the Traditional Head Table.  We accomplish this by putting the wedding couple at a round table and the wedding party at 8 foot banquet tables.  The angle of the V is set at about 25 degrees.
The V-shape head table is a great option for of 10 bridal parties or for use in venues with odd spaces.

Sweetheart Table with Maid of Honor and Best Man

Sweetheart tables have become more popular in recent years.  A sweetheart table is a small round table at which just the bride and groom sit.  Many couples have decided to allow their bridal party to sit with their guests and have a small table to themselves.
Other couples have decided that to have just the Maid of Honor and Best Man seated with them at 48″ round tables or a single 8′ long table.
Once a meal is over, the speeches are done and the dancing begins, head tables are often left empty for the rest of the night since the bridal party mingles with the other guests.  Because of this fact some couples are choosing the smaller table options.

Traditional Head Table

Traditional head tables are long tables set end to end for the entire bridal party and are often set on a riser.  You will need to plan on having the table in a central location in the tent, typically a traditional bridal table is set opposite the dance floor.
A traditional head table can also have a long table for the bride, groom, maid of honor and best man seated at a long table that is elevated behind a long table to accommodate the rest of the bridal party.

Wedding Head Tables

Traditional often dictates how and where guests are seated at a Wedding Reception.  Many brides having destination weddings and are planning a post wedding reception decide not to do traditional seating with place card seating and head tables for the entire bridal party.  A more free form seating with some reserved seating for special family and friends often takes the place of traditional seating.  Head tables for the entire bridal party are often excluded from the seating arrangement and replaced with Sweet Heart Tables or family tables.
