Fun Head Table Ideas for your Wedding Day
Wedding day head table ideas should reflect your unique personalities and style. Whether you want a traditional or whimsical table setting, there are plenty of options to choose from. Many couples opt for a smaller head table with just the couple and their wedding party seated at it, while others choose a more elaborate setup with several tables placed around the room. For a truly unique wedding experience, consider creating your own head table experience!
Traditional Head Tables
We’re staring with the classic, tradition for our head table ideas list. Why? Well, it’s a tradition for a reason. For many couples a head table surrounded by their bridal party is a must. It’s a way to display the friends and family you’ve honored by giving them a place in your wedding party.
There are several variations ranging from a rectangular head table with everyone sitting on the same side to a round table for the newlyweds in between 2 rectangular tables. For larger parties you can even stack tiers on risers.
Sweet Heart Head Table
Next on our List of Head Table Ideas is the current most popular option. This trendy choice is called the Sweetheart Table. It pairs nicely with the Sweetheart Cake, if you ask me. It’s a small table set up only for the newlyweds so they can connect and enjoy each others company in the middle of the blur. I love the sweetheart table.
If you opt for this head table idea you can place your bridal party close by on either side at longer or round tables. Or, you can give your bridal party the freedom to sit with their significant others ar regular guest tables.
Finally, the last of our Head Table ideas! The uber traditional Family Table! In this option the newlyweds sit right with their immediate families so they can share the love and laughter of their big day over a good meal. Family tables also go REALLY well with the Family Style Meal Service.
Family Style Meal Service is a lesser known, but really awesome way to serve your wedding meal. Instead of plated meals, the catering staff brings platters of food to each table and they pass the dish just like at larger family gatherings. It brings a real sense of togetherness.
Sitting With Your Guests
Moving onto the next of our head table ideas, sitting with your guests. That’s right. Why have a head table at all? This option works really well for both small, intimate weddings AND larger weddings. For smaller weddings it makes sense to sit amongst your guests to socialize. For larger weddings, it makes sense to save some room. A head table is usually set up at least 8-10 feet away from the guest tables. That’s a lot of space you could be using for a dance floor instead.
How do you feel about this laid back wedding idea? Do you want to sit at a regular table with your guests?
In conclusion, choosing the right head table for your wedding day is important. By using one of the Head Table Ideas listed above, you can create a beautiful and memorable experiences for both you and your guests.
