How to Choose the Perfect Tables for Your Wedding


When it comes to creating the perfect ambiance for your Big Day, the details can make a world of difference. Take your tables, for example. While some types of tables are more suitable for ultraelegant weddings, others are better for rustic chic and casual weddings. The shape and style of your table will determine the “vibe” your guests feel at your reception and can play a big role in how you utilize the space provided by your wedding venue.  

How can you choose the perfect tables for your wedding? Here are some tips you might want to consider:  

  • Round tables. These are probably among the most common types of tables you will see at weddings. They are great when you want to cluster your guests in smaller groups, and they are generally considered to be quite elegant and pretty. Furthermore, when decorated the right way, these tables can give an air of romanticism and sweetness to the entire wedding, making them truly suitable for brides who have had their dream wedding in mind since they were little girls.  
  • Long, rectangular tables. This type of tables is suitable for multiple wedding styles, depending on how you decorate them. They can work very well for very elegant weddings, but these days, they are also commonly encountered in outdoor weddings. Wooden rectangular tables can also be perfect for rustic weddings.  
  • Sweethearts’ tables. “Sweetheart” doesn’t refer to the table’s shape. Instead, it refers to the table’s “statusBasically, sweethearts’ tables are separate tables reserved for the bride and groom only. If you don’t want to be separated that much from your guests, you can couple a sweethearts’ table with two empty seats at each guest table.  Then you can move from table to table throughout the evening and interact with all your guests 
  • King’s tables. This is perhaps the most traditional way of seating the bride, the groom, and the wedding party. These tables are usually placed facing the other tables in the room and they include the newlyweds, the Maid of Honor and the Best Man on one side and the other of the bride and groom, as well as the rest of the wedding party.
