@RingPup: Yeah, atleast 7months out I plan on having a large family style table.  But in the area of the reception, one table might not fit.

The last wedding I went to had one, I had no clue what it was for. I thought it was for the bridal party! We aren’t having one.

We’re having a family table but it won’t be a “Kings Table”. Fiance and I are sitting with both sets of parents and his brother (best man) and SIL at a normal round banquet table (same as what our guests are sitting at).

We are planning on a king’s table for the wedding party and their dates/spouses.  My parents and his will host their own tables nearby.  I’ve always thought it awkward to have a head table that faces the crowd, so I know I’ll feel much more comfortable with people on both sides of the table.  I also don’t like when the wedding party and their dates/spouses have to sit separately during dinner.  That just doesn’t make sense to me.  A king’s table is a great way to let everyone sit together.

Yup! Met some resistance with my family because it’s not the “traditional” way to do it. But we wanted all our siblings and spouse, our parent and nieces and nephews to sit with us. Including our Maid/Matron of Honor & her husband aka Groomsman we had 19 people at the table. Right in the middle with our guests all around us.

Here’s how the room was set up.

 

Our table:

We are going to do this too–but I’m wondering where we should sit. We could sit at the head of the table with our backs to the dance floor, or somewhere in the middle…or I guess we could have extra seats put in so we could move with the courses?

What have other people done? We are going to have about 40 people at the head table (bridal party, dates, and family).

@bikinihoneymoon:  I’ve seen it both ways (citing pics from Style Me Pretty).  I think we will probably sit in the middle.  I’m curious to hear what others have done or plan on doing too. Ours will only have 20 people, so 10 on each side.

We are. Our venue is the aquarium and is essentially 2 hallways and the both join to a big middle area (which is were dancing and all will occur) The middle aread in between the 2 hallways is where we will have our head table.

Instead of just a head table facing towards nothing really we have been advised on a King’s table type so we get to sit across from others. We like this idea.

Well, I learn something new everyday.. I had no idea what a king’s table even was!  Cool idea.
