Did you know?
A ‘King’s Table’ is a large, rectangular table at which the wedding party (or the Bride and Groom’s family) sit at during the reception. Unlike a standard ‘Top table’, people are seated on all sides of a King’s table. Often, the Bride and Groom choose to leave two spaces vacant opposite their own central positions, to enable guests to see them during the toasts. It has the benefit of being less imposing that a long top table, and more sociable for those seated at it.
Seating plans and escort cardsRoyal wedding seating plans and escort cards can be based on a number of themes:
- Vintage Royal jubilee – use Union Jacks and vintage embellished gold frames to create a Great British celebration wedding seating plan. Here is a great example, aptly entitled ‘A Right Royal Knees Up’!
- Fairy Tale royalty – traditional fairytales find true love, and are full of romantic Princes and Princesses. Whether it is Disney or traditional, let it inspire a fairy tale seating plan, such as these delightful pumpkin escort cards.
- Motifs such as crowns, royal peacocks and Fleur de Lis instantly add a regal touch to seating plans and escort cards. These stylish escort cards use a variety of vintage crown designs on each card, and these escort cards use a stylised design of a Royal peacock feather.
- For a totally quirky option, how about this great escort card display where the Bride and Groom are King and Queen of their own Royal Sandcastle!
