When everything is almost ready and in place for your wedding, when there seems to be the light at the end of the tunnel … the time comes to organise the table plan. It can be a real headache for every couple, having to negotiate between different families, friends, not to mention any feuds or familial dislikes among the guests. But for some years now, a new seating plan concept is revolutionising the wedding world: imperial tables. These are large rectangular tables that will gather all or most of your guests together. Like a traditional banquet of the opulent and regal victorian era, mordernised with a well-defined structure and creative decor.
This unique table set-up is a default plan used by Il Mio Matrimonio Wedding Planners, who we highly recommend for a destination wedding in Italy. Valentina d’Amelio, the head wedding planner of this creative team, reveals 5 more reasons to choose an imperial table plan for your big day.

But now let’s focus on what, according to Il Mio Matrimonio Wedding Planners, will be one of the must-haves of the new generation of weddings. Imperial tables are majestic, with baroque touches, unique yet familiar, with a feeling of togetherness. Farewell to the Tetris of small tables for 8-10 people, an imperial table can seat up to 100 guests. If you’re not 100% convinced, you can mix them creatively to other round tables, to give movement to what will be your spectacular reception layout.
More pros of imperial tables are:
- They still provide an unusual or more original layout, with a strong visual impact
- The arrangement of the guests in a seating plan becomes a breeze
- They are fresh, innovative, familiar yet very sophisticated and elegant
- Decorations stand out more, leaving guests in awe
- They can be combined with smaller or round tables
For Valentina d’Amelio, of Il Mio Matrimonio Wedding Planners, decoration is everything! This means imperial tables are often their go-to, because the effect of them is simply spectacular. Think of the array of centrepieces, with fresh blooming flowers and twinkling candles of all sizes. Then, there’s the long runners that cover the entire table, thus avoiding the annoyance of tablecloths: the effect is definitely rustic-chic and very vintage English!
