View Full Version : Table Styles

10-14-2005, 04:03 PM
I was wondering if anyone used any of the special tablestyles for ur reception? I really like the Classic and Cinderella styles but I don't know how much it costs to upgrade to these. I originally thought that Disney included nice table styles as a standard but I looked at someone's pictures from reception at Atlantic Dance Hall (where I'm having mine) and it looked like the tables just had plain white table cloths and the chairs were wooden. It looked sort of plain to me so I'm thinking maybe I should go with one of these special settings but I don't know if it's in our budget. What were ur experiences?

Have you checked out the whish book at www.disneyweddings.com? I have not yet had my wedding but all the different styles and prices are listed (per table :earseek: ) and different table cloths, napkins, chairs, plates are listed per setting or whatever...it is a great tool.

Hope this helps???

I had my dinner reception inside the "Great Movie Ride" at Disney-MGM Studios. That meant four different table/chair/linen/floral settings for my party: Gangster Area, Western Area, Land of Oz Area, and Sorcerer's Hat Area. As you can imagine, the costs quickly added up.

For some of the venues, I went with Disney's standard table/chair combos and then upgraded the linen package to include colors/patterns that were based upon my Floral Event Manager's expert suggestions. For other venues, I also upgraded the chairs (Wizard of Oz Area) and the tables (light-up tables underneath the Sorcerer's Hat). I should note that I went with chair covers for all of the venues except for the Wizard of Oz venue. My Floral Event Manager suggested that for Oz, we use white, wooden chairs with bright, colorful sashes. I followed her suggestions and that venue was awash in color. It turned out beautifully.

The reason I bring all this up is to let you know that the sky truly is the limit as to what you can do at Walt Disney World. If you have the imagination and the budget, wondrous things can happen under Disney's expert guidance.

Well, I added further details to another thread. I thought I should add them here, too:

In the Gangster Area, we used small, round cocktail tables. Each table seated two to four people. The linens were black and the chair covers were black. To the tables were added deep, red sashes; to the chair covers were added silver, tasseled cords.

In the Western Area, we used a Roman-style table that seated all of my guests. The main tablecloth was black and atop it sat burlap overlays. The chair covers were black with burlap sashes, twine, and daises (yes, real flowers).

In the Land of Oz Area, we used round tables that seated eight people. The tablecloths and overlays were in bright, sherbet colors. The chairs were wooden and were colored white. Colored sashes in various bright, sherbet colors were tied around the backs of each chair.

Underneath the Sorcerer's Hat, we used small, round cocktail tables that seated two to four people. These tables were light-up tables that glowed in various colors throughout the night. They were covered in white tablecloths while the chairs were covered in black chair covers.

I hope this helped. One of these days I hope to post photos of my dinner party. Keep an eye on my two threads on the Disí Trip Reports board for further details (FTW VR PS Trip Report (http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=634041) and FTW VR Trip Report (http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?p=6849976#post6849976)).

Janet2k, do you have any pictures of your settings? I know you mentioned you have pics of the party, but do you have any of just the location before the people all arrived and were amazed? It sounds beautiful.

Yes, I do have photos without people in them. I have been debating posting them but so far have held off on the temptation. I will give it some further thought. I just hate the thought of posting my photos without any explanation or background info regarding what was chosen and why. I guess it's the engineer in me -- always wanting to explain the situation so that people understand it as fully as possible. ;)
