Why Your Head Table Should be a Focal Point at Your Wedding

Your head table will be one of the most important elements on your wedding day. Yet, so many couples think of it as an afterthought! After your read through our reasons below, I think you’ll agree on why your head table should be a focal point at your wedding.

It’ll be the Focus

Your head table will typically consists of multiple long rectangular tables. These tables take up a lot of space which automatically makes it the focus of the room. Not only should we consider the size but we should also think of the placement. Where will the head table be? Your head table will either be in the center of the room or right at the front. When your guests walk in, eyes will be drawn right to it! Regardless if you dress up your head table or not, it will be the focus of the reception.

Who is Sitting at the Table? YOU!

That’s right, the most important people at this event will be seated at the head table; that’s you guys! Eyes will naturally wonder towards the head table as guests look to see the new Mr. and Mrs.. There will also be many events that will take place at the head table. Speeches, toasts, you name it. They all happen at your head table. Because of this, these tables will be photographed A LOT. Trust me, as a wedding florist who has received hundreds of galleries, the most photographed tables are the head tables. You’ll have these photos for a lifetime so it is important to make sure your head table is a beautiful and eye catching focal point.

It Naturally Brings Everyone Together

Once dinner is finished and toasts are made, guests often head to the dance floor. Your dance floor will be right by your head table. A beautifully designed hanging installation, floral garland, or canopies can help encourage guests to get out of their seats and start dancing. They will want to see your head table arrangements up close! You don’t know how many times I come to the reception to tear down to find guests walking around the reception viewing each of the table arrangements up close. You’ll want to make sure that your head table is one of them.

Highly recommend Roots Floral Design - absolutely beautiful!

“Kaytee is an absolute GEM! She has so much passion and care for what she does, that you feel like she's a friend more than a vendor. She walks you through each step of the floral process with organization, examples, cost, and detail -- all things that make my detail-oriented heart happy. The end result far exceeded anything we could have hoped for or imagined. ALL. THE. GREENERY. Future brides, run, don't walk to Roots for your wedding. From start to finish, she took care of every single floral need to make our day positively beautiful.”

-Laura, Summer 2019 Wedding


"Kaytee became so much more than a vendor for us. The first time I met her I felt as though I met a long lost friend. She was the very first vendor I chose for the wedding (even before the venue) and she lived up to all my expectations and went above and beyond.  Each time I met with her I felt confident that she completely comprehended my wants and would fashion them into something that looks put together, yet natural. The day-of she silently transformed a bland rustic space into an enchanting, romantic barn. I couldn't have asked for anything more beautiful or unique."

-Grace, Spring 2019 Wedding


"Kaytee was so great to work with!!! I provided her with some floral inspirations from Pinterest and Instagram but gave her a lot of free rein coming up with the flowers for our wedding and she went above and beyond expectations. Our photographer was obsessed with all the bouquets and we got so many great pictures of them! She did such a good job making my smaller budget work to make high impact arrangements. She's also the sweetest person to be around!"
