My wedding is at a church chapel and It will be in May.
The reception will be in the room right next to the Chapel and It is kinda small.. Maximum capacity of the room is 100 or so and I have about 125 guests coming. They said I can leave the doors opened during the reception so people can mingle outside of the room which leads to bigger hall.
I need help with how I will be setting the tables, decorations and food.
I will NOT be having a sitdown meal. It will just be fingerfood, refreshments and some deserts.
I would want to have some seatings for everyone to sit down at one point. However, I would not have tables and chairs set up everywhere for assigned seatings.
Bee hives! Help me with this!!
Thanks !! 😀

One of my friends got married last summer and had buffet style finger foods. The food was great, but the flow of foot traffic was terrible! Considering they had around 200 guests, I had to wait over an hour in a single-file line for food. Depending on the number of guests you have, I’d recommend using 6 or 8 foot rectangular tables lined up in an open space so guests can easily walk down BOTH sides of the tables to serve themselves more quickly. As for table arrangements, I’m struggling with that myself right now. I think long tables work better for space constraints, and make for better social interactions with guests. I’ve been to a couple weddings with large, round tables, and with music playing, it is difficult to interact with someone across the table from you.
