Single Long Tables
If you are looking for something more romantic and classic, long tables are your best bet. Long tables were very popular years ago, and now they’re coming back! The only problem is, if you seat all of your guests at one long table, it may get a bit noisy. The long tables are great for smaller, more intimate events unless you’re going to have multiple long tables.
This style seating arrangement is very rare but unique! The X-shape table arrangements are one of our favorites because it allows you to see everyone at the table. The only negative with this style seating is that you lose about eight seats due to the connection of the table. If you are going to choose this style, we suggest doing so only if you have a small number of guests.
Nobody says you need to have the same tables throughout your wedding floor plan. Mixing round and long tables add space to the room and makes a beautiful visual from above. Don’t be afraid to get creative and most importantly, have fun with it!
If you are trying to make a bold statement, then long curvy tables that can form an s-shape is right up your alley. This is our favorite seating style because it’s so elegant and classy. What makes this table style different from just having a long table, is the dramatic effect that the curves give off. This table style looks amazing indoors for a fancy event and outdoors for a rustic wedding.
Rectangular tables are the 2nd most common seating style for weddings and events. If you want a layout that is symmetrical and elegant, rectangular tables are perfect for you. Depending on the length of the table, you can fit between four to ten guests at each table. These tables are great for both small and big events.
The most popular table choice is circular-shaped tables. When it comes to space, circular tables allow for about eight to twelve guests at each table, cutting down the number of tables needed for the reception. Having your guests seated at round tables allows for everyone to see one another and encourages enjoyable conversations. Keep it traditional and classy.
