Sorry to ask such a BORING question but I was wondering if anyone who used long tables at their reception (or is going to use long tables at their reception) could share the width of the tables??
I’m worried our tables are going to be too narrow as we are doing a feasting menu and so having food down the centre of the tables (along with the centre pieces.)
Our tables will be .76m wide….

Our tables were .74m wide. What centrepieces were you thinking of having? I’ll post a pic of our tables so you can see the space on either side of centrepieces. DH and I got all our food on plates put in front of us to share and there wasn’t that much room. The plates on the table are small bread plates to give you an idea of space. Hope this helps a little!

@bali_y: Thank you so much for your reply!! That is really helpful! And what a beautiful table, love the colours 🙂 🙂
We were just going to have centrepieces similar to yours. Flowers in jars 🙂
I might chat to our caterer and change to a plated menu instead of the feasting so that it’s not too cramped.

I’m inbetween 48 and 56 inches for my long tables, but I’m doing family-style dinner so there needs to be room for food platters.
