Some things you just have to have; other things you might like, but don't necessarily need; and some things are a red flag "no"!   Remember that the things you knew you had to have when you were younger might not be your current style, so give yourself time to "play" with different ideas.

QUESTION- What are my head table options?   Great Question.  The options are endless! We typically will see a traditional long table, a harvest table, or a sweetheart table.
