A final head table idea is for the bride and groom to sit at a table with their parents, the maid of honor and best man, and the spouses or dates of the honor attendants. This can be an excellent idea for a couple who has a very small wedding party or an unmanageably large one (the rest of the bridal party would sit among the other guests). It is also a very nice way to honor the parents of the bride and groom. This can be a lovely head table, as long as the newlyweds do not have a complicated family situation (ie, hostile parents or step-parents).
After defining a general style for the new tables, actual designs must be created. In some cases a finished product can be fabricated from a sketch alone. That is not the case with these tables however. Prototypes have to be built based on very rough sketch concepts. The tables have to ultimately be designed three-dimensionally by actually cutting and welding steel. The rough sketches are used as a basic starting point but the overall design is not completely determined beforehand. I use the "design as you go" approach" and each table takes shape on the fly.
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.)
Dining: Have you ever invited guests over for dinner and then realised that you don't have enough space to seat them all? Your dining table just isn't big enough, or you don't even own one? Well, a trestle table can solve that problem. It can easily be used to increase your dining space. A four foot table can seat four to six people, and a six foot table can seat six to eight. And if you have a dining table too, these seats can be extra.
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.
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.
