Family Style Wedding Reception Dining & Why You Want It!

So what is 'Family Style Dining' you say? It's when everyone sits at one [or a few if you have a lot of guests] long table and dines together like a family. Sure, large weddings still use the old wedding classic set up of multiple round tables with head table - but these great big tables offer a closeness and an intimacy [and an Old World familiarity] that will have all your guests feeling like family! This is a big plus for solo guests, wallflowers or shy relatives, and those who know few other guests. And the extra bonus? No one feels as though they're stuck at the 'boring table'! Boun appetito!

Entertaining in style with Williams Sonoma fabulous table settings, glassware, dishes and more!

Uber stylist Abby Larson, the visionary behind Style Me Pretty, plays house with lovely table ware from Williams Sonoma. "There are no rules when it comes to using china, Abby insists. “It really comes down to styling,” she explains. “Most of the tables that I create in my own home use fine china, then I add details to support the spirit of the event. If we’re doing family-style pasta and salad, I might lay the flatware directly on the plate and tie a grosgrain ribbon around it. Instead of a grand centerpiece, I’ll do bud vases filled with a single stem in each. There really are no rules!”

“There are so many elements that play into the decision for a formal or casual place setting,” Abby says. “First: What is the overall vibe of your event? This is determined by the details that you’ve woven in, from the menu to the centerpieces, from the napkins you choose to the music that you play.”

Still can’t decide between formal and casual? Consider the way the meal is being served.

“Generally speaking, if I plan to serve more than two courses, I set the table using a formal place setting,” Abby tells us. “If our meal will be served family style or as a buffet, I set a slightly more casual table.” Read the complete article on table settings here.
