What about  a serpentine table?  I dont know if I spelled that right.  It is like a half cirlce table maybe you could use it to curve around a corner and create more room?  I have also been to a wedding where the bride and groom have a table up on a stage and the attendants sit at one in front of them on the lower level.  At this wedding they had the cake in front of that table but you could just use the other side for their spouse, SO, or guest.  Does that make sense?

We had a sweetheart table, then put the Bridal Party at 2 tables with their dates.  We didn’t have enough to fill both tables though, so put a handful of our friends with their dates at the “bridal party” tables.  Had we not done a sweetheart table, we would have sat at one of the bridal party tables (the one with our siblings) and filled the 2nd table with bridal party and friends.

It’s really not a big deal where people sit as long as they know at least 1-2 other people at their table.  We hardly sat at our table, even during dinner since we were up talking to guests. The most time we spent sitting was during speeches.

What about a king’s table? I’ve been to two weddings with them now and I think they’re kind of cool if they work in your venue.

We’re sitting at a table with our parents. Due to distance, the last time we had dinner at the same table with all four of them was over five years ago!
