…..or our crazy wedding party!
When we began thinking about how we were going to sit at the wedding party I seriously had no clue. We didn’t want to have a sweet heart table, we thought we would feel isolated, plus we want to spend time with the special people we picked to be a part of our day. Then we felt bad keeping these people away from their SOs, I mean everyone should have a good time right? Then I thought, wouldn’t it be perfect to have everyone in our wedding party and their SOs all sit at the same table as us? Brilliant, I mean we are friends with ALL of these people so why not include them? I didn’t even know this was called a king’s table until recently. But, this image immediately came to mind!
Then I giggled thinking of the wedding party dressed like knights of the round table. Then I saw the gorgeous images of the extremely long king’s tables and fell in love.
We will sit at the end and then have 9-10 people sitting along each side.
Are any other bees going with a king’s table set up?

This is beautiful! We’ve changed our reception to be a cocktails/dessert reception, but when we originally were planning to do a sit down dinner, I wanted a King’s table 🙂
p.s. love the first picture – so funny!

We’re doing that, too! Do you know if couples are seated facing each other or beside each other? I can’t seem to figure it out for the life of me, lol :).

We are doing that because of the same reasons you had said (feeling bad having the bridal party’s SO sit alone with people they don’t really know). Our DOC actually suggested it and called it a “feast table”. The only difference is that the bridal party’s date will sit across from them and we will be in the center with no one across from us. The table will be huge!

@jo.lee: Since the then hubby and I will be sitting on the end (me on the right, him on left) we would have the bridesmaids along the right and groomsmen along the left. Then their SOs would sit next to them. Example: Maid/Matron of Honor C, Maid/Matron of Honor C’s fiance, Bridesmaid or Best Man M, Bridesmaid or Best Man M’s fiance, etc.

Yep, we’re doing this for the same reason. We didn’t want to do a sweetheart table and we couldn’t really sit with our parents because my FI’s parents can’t be in the same general vicinity and we didn’t want to cause drama by choosing. So we’ll have all round tables except for our table which will be tuscan style with seats on both sides for us, our bridal party, and their dates.
