Probably the best place to put a small table is an entryway or foyer. Half moon tables in these locations provide the maximum amount of maneuverability while still providing significant space to put items on.
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.
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.
Half-moon tables are perfect for placing against walls, especially in areas people will be moving around in. They take up less room than a rectangular, square or circular table, and are much easier to walk around than those types of table. They also have no protruding sharp points for people to walk into. You usually do not want to put a half moon table in the middle of a room because it will stand out.
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.
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.)
