Hi girls, i could really use some advice! We only have access to the rectange banquet tables for our wedding. I can’t decide if we should push two together or leave them single. I’m worried it will be too crowded if single, but if they’re doubled then I worry it will look wide and empty and make conversation more difficult. Please let me know your thoughts. thanks in advance!

I think they will be fine single and not to squished unless you are going to run a centerpiece down the entire thing then go larger.

Do you know what you’re doing for centerpieces yet? If they’ll be kind of small, then I would go with the single, I think it’s a very cute look. To me, it doesn’t look squished as long as you don’t put someone on the ends. If you’re planning on going all-out on the centerpieces, though, do the double to give yourself more room.

If you have the space, it would probably be more comfortable with two together. If you do table runners, I don’t think it’ll look too open at all. The single table is fine too, just that every glass/plate/centerpiece will be competing for space.

How loud is the space going to be? A single table might actually be better for your guests because they won’t have to talk so loud to hear the people across from them.

Depending on how big the space is, you can do a combination of both. For my sister’s wedding, we did two tables together down the center of the room with a row of single tables on each side.

Talk to your florist. If you push two together and it’s in the budget, they can do some amazing centerpieces with the extra space. Don’t count on people talking across the table, so if you’re assigning seats, put couples next to each other rather than across.

thank you so much for your thoughts! I’m not sure what kind of centerpiece to use yet. The extra table clothes for doubling the tables will cost an extra 120, so it’s not too bad. I’m still debating the issue – i’m really worried about crowding and conversation still, but you have all given me lots to think about.
