Italian Wedding Ideas - The Imperial Table

Italian Wedding Ideas

For drama and impact, nothing equals the imperial table setup for a wedding reception! 

The imperial table is ideal for both formal and informal receptions and allows for the most options as far as decor and floral arrangements.

We LOVE imperial tables whether one single table or a U shaped or even winding version!  When your guests arrive they will always be impressed with a beautiful long table.

The versatility of the imperial table  is just one of its advantages.  Above is a photo of the ideal setting for a rustic wedding reception in Tuscany with bare wood tables, bright flower arrangements and other special touches.  Decorating the table is essential for maximum impact. This can be done of course with flowers but not only.......we recommend candles, tea lights and other special touches to follow your wedding theme.  We love a bit of colour for wedding receptions - they will have a real impact on your wedding photos versus an all white/cream theme.

A formal U shaped imperial table allows guests to see each other and celebrate together. The above was designed for a formal wedding in Florence at one of our top venues - the Sumptuous Villa.


Imperial tables are only limited by the space and size of the reception area.  In some cases it is possible to have a single long table for even 300 guests and the effect is stunning as with our Valpolicella Villa!


Besides the long traditional table - imperials are now gaining popularity with a "twist"!  Round or following a romantic curved pattern.....there is something for every style and wedding party size.
