The feasting table (or King’s Table) setup at your special event or wedding is a recent trend, likely stemming from the desire to have a more intimate dinner party table setup similar to a Thanksgiving gathering in dining room at home, with a hint of grand style. Some banquet facilities have such tables, in other instances, rectangular tables are rented. The idea provides for a far different look than the standard round guest table arrangement. It also allows your bridesmaids and groomsmen to sit with their dates, spouses (less isolated for guests). It’s especially apropos for a Medieval Times theme event!
It’s recommended to have tables at least 48 inches wide (6 or 8 feet long), in order to accommodate the place settings, charger plates, stemware, smaller sized centerpieces preferably six or less inches wide. When you’re deciding how many guests to seat for the length of the table, a two feet or more per person guideline is typically followed. The Feasting table provides ideal conversation distance, so your guests can more easily hear one another. It’s entirely up to you, whether to use a seating chart or have guests sit where they choose.
The overall, long tables setup is stunning, especially when accented with fabric Runners in luxurious taffeta, satin organza or a cascade of flower petals or colorful floral blooms trailing the length of the tables. It’s a family-friendly setup that adds a comfortable note to your special event room. So the option is yours to ditch the head table concept and opt for a more intimate family and friends dinner. There’s just something about this setup that seems to mesh well, with two families coming together on your special day and THE official TOAST to the bride & groom!
