Today we are talking Long Tables for Weddings and how they can create a different look..
Traditionally speaking most British weddings tend to be with round tables for guests and long tables for the bride and groom, however we are noticing a new trend which I believe we will see a lot more of, that being long tables for guests as well.
Long banqueting tables for the sit down meal is very contemporary look for weddings of today, Long rectangle tables completely switches up the atmosphere and dynamics of the meal for you and your guests.. it has a very warm feeling about the overall look whilst forcing your guests to interact more with their immediate surrounding.
Having rectangular long tables for weddings opens up an entire new playing field when bringing decor to the table from an assortment of floral arrangements and centrepiece options.. A few of our favourites are below! Any questions on trying to create this look get in touch or speak to a wedding planner.
In this photo you can see the creativity that can be brought to the table, with a runner of floral arrangements and beautiful candle holders and vases.
Charger plates are a great choice to set the table with a theme a very popular option for the opulent wedding decor.
This particular wedding used pretty gold chiavari chairs.
The long table look here has a completely different feel of being young, fun and relaxed the draping plays a massive part in this as it creates a different atmosphere, the lighting is cooler.
The detail with having pretty chandeliers hanging from the draping makes the focal point in between the table.
This wedding had white chair covers with black bands
Smaller flowers have been used this time with roses and one main centrepiece!
The purple room lighting makes this into more of a dinner dance type wedding, the purple flowers very large inside take over the centre of the table and really create a dramatic look, the only problem with such large flowers is that guests may not be able to conversate over them.
However with tall vases guests are able to chat through them!
Again Chiavari chairs are a popular option!
These photos showcase how warm and friendly banqueting will feel for your guest tables, the length encourages talking across the table and next to you at the tables, everyone can see their immediate guests which will be about 12 people in their surrounding view.
Low centrepieces will facilitate conversations
So if you are thinking about going long for your wedding, it can look really stunning and there are a lot of options!
So get planning!
