    I had a very small venue. In order to get all our guests into the dining area & keep a dance floor we had to use a mix of rectangular & circular tables. We seated our families on the circular tables (there were 4-5) & our friends on rectangular tables further away (I think there we 6-7)

    If you’re worried about space and creating areas for dancing, walking, etc. then rectangular is somewhat easier.  You need about 2′ on each side for clearance and with round you end up losing a bunch of adjacent room.  Try making a scale room diagram if you have the measurements.
