8 Long King's Tables for Your Wedding Reception

Creating a royal atmosphere for your wedding day surprisingly requires a good amount of attention to detail. While you can acquire the larger elements – a ballroom venue, a golden color palette, and beyond – the true test of your event’s regality is the creativity put into the smaller elements. Of course, this is true with all common wedding motifs. Each couple’s nuptials can evoke a certain concept brilliantly, so long as they’re dedicated to the little things. 

One such lesser-thought-of element is the kind of table selected for the reception. Though large in stature, the type of table you’re going to use doesn’t often pop up in wedding-day dreams or fantasies; however, it’s an essential piece of the celebration. It’s quite popular to mix up your table styles to create variety and depth for your reception, and we encourage you to consider adding extended – or King’s tables – to your space. Idyllic for fairy-tale nuptials featuring rustic, modern, and every theme in between, these designs will allow clusters of guests to have intimate conversations, as well as a more expansive aesthetic.
