This may be the nerdiest response you get, but I would totally draw it out. Get some graph paper so you can make everything in the right dimension and then arrange and rearrange everything until it looks right. I think you would want the tables convenient to both the buffet tables and the dance floor. Depending on what you are serving, you might want to space out the buffet tables so the line won’t back up as easily.

Martha Stewart weddings has a reception layout template that allows you to place little tables on a grid and change the sizes, etc. It helped me a lot with my planning!!

Also, I think Mrs. Gummi Bear had long tables – maybe you could check out her pics and see if they show enough of the layout to use as inspiration.

yep, i have been to a wedding like this and no one had a problem at all.. it was actually quite fun and family like. i think they had small gaps between every table just so people could walk around it.  i definitely think maybe put two together and then a gap for people to walk around or else your guests would have to traipse up 16 long tables to get around…
