Head Table Ideas for Weddings Wedding reception setups customarily include an area for the bride and groom as well as the wedding party to sit together.  Typically, this is referred to as a “head table” and it is placed in a prominent area of the room so all of the guests can view the couple and wedding party easily.  The head table can be configured in various fashions, and can even become a part of the décor of the room/setup.  Traditionally, one would setup the head table with the newly married couple in the center, followed by groomsmen to the right of the groom and bridesmaids to the left of the bride.  However, couples are becoming more and more apt to doing things differently in this day and age.   The wedding reception venue should be able to provide you with ideas for your head table, and advice on where to place it in the room.  Here at the Sioux Falls Convention Center we offer complimentary risers with our wedding packages, so you can have your head table lifted up off of the ground.  This increases the visibility of the bride/groom and wedding party to the guests, especially during toasts and speeches this is helpful.  We will provide risers for as large of a head table as you need (we have accommodated head tables up to 16 people), at no additional cost to you, and this includes your choice of white or black table skirting.  A couple of ideas for some innovative head table setups are:  doing multi-level head tables (tiered), angled head tables (almost positioned like a V shape), a round table for the bride and groom with two rectangle (8ft tables) off to either side for the attendants, a hollow square head table in the center of the room, or a sweet-heart (half-moon) table for the bride and groom.  You can even take it one step further, beyond the basic design concept and incorporate lighting to your head table to add a distinctive glow.  A popular way to accent the head table is to have some sort of backdrop behind it.  Incorporating up-lights with a monogram of the couples initials or names has also been a huge trend the past few years, as well as draping material from the ceiling behind the head table.  Adding some décor to the front of the head table is another angle that can be taken, to add some glam to your wedding setup!  Please give me a call or stop by the Sioux Falls Convention Center, and it would be my pleasure to assist you with putting together a head table that will meet your functional and design needs.
