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.
When your room has one sofa included, one sofa table is an idea accessory. There are nowadays, however, the L shaped sofas which allow for two such tables to be strategically paced behind the two legs of the L shape. When it comes to size, make sure that you get the same length as your own sofa, so you need to first measure your couch carefully. If it's too long, it will stick out and look out of place, whereas if it is too short, the place look like when something is missing from there, not to mention that it's easy to have small accidents due to people not seeing it in the first place!
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.
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.
Entertaining: If you're hosting a party, whether it's a birthday party, a summer BBQ, or even a wedding or christening, then a folding table can be used for the food. It's good to have all your drink and food in one place, allowing your guests to easily help themselves to what they want.
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.
