The sweetheart table is another option for a head table. In this situation, the bride and groom are seated at a tiny table for two in a prominent spot in the reception room. The rest of the bridal party is seated with their dates or spouses, and are usually intermingled with the regular wedding guests. The sweetheart table can be very romantic, but some also believe that it is rude, as it isolates the newlyweds from the rest of the reception. (Because nobody wants to interrupt the bride and groom seated at a sweetheart table, they become very unapproachable.)
What does a metal sculpture artist do when he needs a new challenge? For me, that meant creating a new line of contemporary end tables. I will now take you through my reasoning for this endeavor, the idea process, and then the actual fabrication of a finished end table.
A table of this variety is a great to place in areas where you have limited room or where people will be walking, such as hallways or main rooms. Because of their shape, they create the illusion that they extend from the wall, forming a natural smooth curve. This makes them attractive to the eye and can add a flow of vision and movement to a room.
A sofa table is basically a furniture piece that will rest against your sofa or couch. Due to its rather narrow and tall style, it can easily save you space in the living room while at the same time offering you great storage options for various small knick-knacks that can fit on the table. The height of these tables is between 40-50" and the narrow aspect allows them to give a person full access to its whole surface area.
Once a three-dimensional prototype is created, the design can then be refined. The prototype allows you to view the tables from all angles and fine tune the spacing of the steel round-bar. The number of pieces used to build the table can also be changed. Sometimes additional pieces need to be added either for functional stability or from a design standpoint. Sometimes I remove pieces to open up the design.
The classic head table is designed to keep the bridal party together, with the bride and groom in the center of everything. It works very well for this purpose, but there can also be some drawbacks to this arrangement. The biggest complaint is that the bridesmaids and groomsmen want to sit with their dates (and even more to the point, their dates do not want to be marooned at a distant table where they do not know anyone). If you have a lot of people in your bridal party who are married or seriously involved with a partner, it is understandable that they would wish to be seated together. (On the other hand, if your attendants are not in a committed relationship, they should think twice before asking someone to be their "plus one" for the wedding, as that person will definitely be spending a lot of time feeling abandoned, no matter what the seating arrangements are for dinner.)
