    @waitingforthering2:  It is much easier for guests to socialize at round tables. You can talk with everyone at the table.

    At a long table you can really only talk with the two people on either side of you and those directly across from you.

    It depends on what factor is going to most influence your decision- the comfort of your guests, or the look in photographs?

    Definitely round. Easier to socialize.

    @waitingforthering2:  We really wanted to do two long tables because it looks beautiful but we talked to a lot of guests over the holidays and they all said they prefer round tables because it’s easier to chat.

    So we’re doing rounds since the guests seem to like it more.

    This has been a dilemma for me too. I prefer the look of long tables, especially in pictures, but round tables tend to be more guest friendly, as they allow for better socialization. I suppose you should decide what matters more to you, the look of your wedding or your guests’ comfort.

    I also love the look of long tables but I think round tables are better for interaction/conversation!
