Unique Tabletop Ideas | Is tradition changing? For years we have seen the long straight head table build for your bride, groom and wedding ceremony. It can be a little more challenging to communicate with the whole wedding ceremony especially if it is one large long table. Now, we have been seeing more brides looking at different options for his or her head table. Many want a more intimate, restaurant feel as though they may be spending the evening out with their friends inside a relaxed and fun atmosphere (which they may be naturally).
Over the past few years I have seen some unique head table setups. Many brides desire to stay away from the long table look and choose “out from the norm”. It is surprising to listen for several couples mention how shy they may be and don’t desire to be the center of attention while eating their meal. Others just desire to vary and make their wedding their unique style.
Here are several ideas:
Restaurant style: How about one round table in the middle from the hall with color linens and centerpieces entirely different from all of your other guest tables. It would be quite evident which is the “head table”. You can even ask your decorator to hang crystals or paper lanterns from the ceiling which will be only over your table.

Modern Twist: Boardroom or U-shape “King table” as it is called is build in the middle of your venue by using 8 tables inside a square formation. This is one of my favourites as you can accent the centre from the tables full of many candles, a water pond which can be great, or floral arrangements.
