The King’s Table – A New Dining Trend You’ll Want to Include in Your Wedding
Wedding trends change yearly, a recent resurgence in formal affairs and grand glamour have brought in a new dining trend; a king’s table for the wedding reception dinner. While there are many table configuration options for wedding reception dining, nothing sets the stage for sophistication like a super-stretch king’s table. Check out what we think of this wedding trend below and let us know what you think in the comments!
Perfect for a King and Queen
After all, when envisioning a lavish dining room fit for a king and queen, a refined, formal long table comes to mind with elegant tabletop appointments. In lieu of a traditional head or sweetheart table, a long king’s table allows your bridal party and their guests as well as your close family members to all sit at the VIP table (that is, your table). A sprawling, 16’/24’/32’/40’+ king’s table set in the middle of the room with surrounding round or rectangular guest tables commands attention and allows everyone to have an eye on the newlyweds.
Tie Your Table Into Your Theme
There’s many ways to “dress up” your King table. Base it off your weddings theme, choose colors, floral arrangements, and decor that compliment the rest of the venue. Personalize it anyway you’d like, just remember to do it big! Check out some ideas below.
Glitter & Gold
Include floating candles to bring out the hues of gold in this lovely King’s Table design.
Use muted florals such as white roses and ivy to create a soft, elegant King’s Table.
Use Nature to Create Beauty
If your budget allows, consider including nature in your King’s Table design. The variations of small trees, florals an and leaves will give your wedding a naturally beautiful look.
Creating Your Look
You can create a truly dynamic dining experience with beautiful visual appeal by using long tables throughout. Using your venue’s space as your guide, set rectangular tables back-to-back to extend the entire length of the room, turn the tables to create a unique U-shape, or place elongated king’s tables in dramatic, parallel rows. No matter the configuration, each guest will experience the royal treatment.
