One of the most difficult parts of the wedding planning for many couples is the seating at the reception. Not only do you have to figure out how to arrange all of your guests, there is also the matter of the head table to be decided. Here are some of the more popular options for head tables, along with the pros and cons of each.
Furniture made of acrylic has a strong impact in any given room because it preserves that light, transparent and airy feel and look transforming an otherwise boring room into a beauty. Such items such as acrylic coffee tables make great additions for small interior spaces because they serve the small crowded rooms perfectly well without making them look overdone. The tables serve as decorative but functional items. You will love how they enhance the beauty of your rug or carpet.
Because they are curved on the side that extends out into the room, these tables take up less room than square or rectangular tables. They also do not have any sharp points, as square and rectangular tables do. This makes them much safer, especially in a home that has children. The sharp edges of rectangular tables are often at the head level of young children. This makes a table with a half moon shape a good choice for homes with children.
Square tables - Square has been the perfect shape for ages and you will easily find square acrylic coffee tables for your room. If you go for this style of table, leave space around the table to keep accidents at bay. You can buy a glass top for additional glamour of the table or choose L shaped legs or mix glass or metal with the acrylic for that modern looking table.
How many of us have ever thought about the principles of setting a table? For the uninitiated, how you prepare a table is about nothing more than putting silverware and utensils on a table before eating, and if you are lucky, sticking a napkin under each fork. We may ask, what is so difficult or interesting about that? Yet if we stop to think about it, whenever we go to a major event, it is the way that the tables have been set that creates the look and tone of the hall.
The most traditional head table arrangement is a long rectangle, with the bride and groom in the center. The bride and groom are flanked by their entire bridal party going down the table on either side of them. The arrangement is usually to have the best man seated beside the bride and the maid of honor next to the groom. From there, the rest of the bridesmaids and groomsmen are seated, alternating male/female. By the way, I have heard some people asking if it would be appropriate to place the bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts at each place setting at the head table. The answer is no; give your groomsmen and bridesmaid gifts a day or two before the wedding, and give each member of your bridal party the same wedding favor as the rest of your guests.
