Highlight the Head Table
No matter what wedding table decorating ideas you have, the head table decorations should be distinctive. The head table is where the bride and groom will sit, and it should be easily distinguished from the rest of the tables at the wedding reception. At the same time, the head table should not be far more elaborate than the other tables or it will seem ostentatious and overdone: balance is the key.
Lighting for Drama
Dramatic lighting draws the eye. Use lighting to emphasize the head table, the cake table or other areas of the reception you want to highlight.
Candles of different heights are a romantic border.
Greenery is a bold and economical choice.
Decorate the linens for more color.
Use contrasting backdrop fabrics for drama.
Large floral arrangements can frame the table.
Outdoor Head Table Decoration
Choose simple decorations with a bold outdoor setting.
Tiers can accommodate a large bridal party.
Keep champagne nearby for toasting. Artfully placed food and drink can be aesthetically pleasing.
