i had an original post about these but since we upgraded the tent we need a new floor plan! and ive been playing with this for so long that they all start looking the same but here is what i have come up with.
i guess you cant see everything because uploading it shrunk it but what layout looks like the best set up?
we have a 30×60 epic pole tent

Are you deliberately placing the dance floor behind the guests? Usually the dance floor is more towards the front or atleast the center of the room..

I voted for option #4. The head table is close to the dance floor so you can always see people having a good time even when you’re seated. I also like that the buffet table is far from the dance floor… you wouldn’t want some crazy break dancer to literally break something while grooving out! 🙂

The only ones I would avoid would be option 3 and option 7 only because you are so far from the dance floor.. even if you arent going to be dancing the whole time I dont think you want to be that far. All the other options are so similar it only seems to make a small difference.

@bells it is a tented reception in our back yard. therefore an extension cord of sorts will be used and i didnt want to run it where people may trip over it. that is why i stuck the dance floor in the corner. i used to be all about symmetrical-ness but now im just for whatever works.
@littlewhitedots ha good point!
@Mrs.Williams ive been to a cfew weddings recently and from what ive expereinced, the couple spend very little time at the table. mostly during dinner time and that is it. the rest of the time was spent dancing so i am not worried about seeing the dance floor from the table
also, a wedding we went to recently, the sitting/table area was a little aways from the buffet/cance area and it seemed to work quite well

I like 2 the best, but I think your cake should be closer to the head table. Shouldn’t it be sort of “on display” for everyone to see? In 2 it kinda looks like it has been shoved into a corner 🙁

i think your tables should be a lot closer to the dance floor. right now it kind of looks like everything is just stuck in a corner.

Would it be crazy to put your dance floor in the center, and your tables around it? I always thought the dance floor should be a focal point and maybe your head tables at the head of the dance floor, and the DJ and equipment a little off to the side of that. Buffet and bar still along the outer edges, of course.

I agree, I would try to figure out some way for the dance floor to be closer to the center.
