I don’t understand the question – are you seeking help because you only have 16 tables after the sweetheart and bridal party tables?

Also, do you have enough parents to fill an 8 person table?

I would suggest moving the gift table if thats what that is ALL the way over in the corner.

Could you try angling the bottom 5 tables on each side “in” more?? Rather than / (that way), maybe angle them (that way?)  It frames the dance floor a little better.

I’d put the dj where the cake and sweetheart table are, and then put those two in the big empty space below the dance floor.

Ditto shoving the gift table back further. I’m also worried that you don’t have very much room around the food tables–remember there will be lots of people walking there.

ETA: Also, I’d probably do my family and FI’s family (one table for each, combining parents and grandparents), rather than one table for parents and one for grandparents, but thats just me.

I’m not sure if your interested in this idea but I love the Large square look when there are oblong tables. Put 2-4 tables together to make a square. This makes for a more intimate and elegant look when oblong tables are involved. It also saves on centerpieces and leaves more room for the Buffet lines. I am attaching some pictures.

Along with that idea you could ask your venue if it is possiable to make the Dance floor oblong instead of square. That changes the look of the room. I think Dance floors look great like that. See attached pictures.

I hope this helps!

And Next


and now for the dance floor idea.


I’m sorry I do not know who’s pictures these are but if they are yours please let me know I will give you credit! They are all beautiful.

I hope this gives you some idea’s other than the oblong look.
