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.
Wedding table settings, for example, are supposed to reflect the romantic, exciting atmosphere of the evening. Each idea has its own style and look. A baby shower table arrangement will probably look much different from a Valentine day one.
A flat surface is about the only standard requirement of a coffee table, everything else is negotiable. This means that you can custom design a table using any materials that you please. The only consideration that you should take into account is the issue of safety; glass should be tempered glass and sharp corners should be smoothed slightly to prevent accidents. Other than these considerations you have free rein.
An alternative to the long rectangular head table is a "captain's table", which is also a long table, but with seating all around it instead of only on one side. This can be an excellent way to be able to accommodate the dates or spouses of your bridal party at the same table as your attendants. Some couples might not like this as well as the traditional head table, as they will not be facing their guests without an obstruction, but it does lend itself to conversation more than the long single-sided table does. Another factor to keep in mind with the captain's table is its very large size; some venues might not have a suitable place in the room for one.
Whichever way you go, choose the head table set up that works the best for your particular family situation and reception venue. Once you weigh all of your options, one style of seating is going to emerge as the most practical for your wedding. And then you can breathe a sigh of relief, as you cross "head table seating" off of your to-do list!
The sofa tables are great in every home and they can easily adapt to all interior decor styles that are available today. For example if your home is in a classic, traditional style, you can easily use a table made of wood with extra customization that will give it a more modern look. You can even have tables with glass tops that give your furniture piece a rather stylish and contemporary feel without detracting from the classic aspect of it all.
