I would put the cake table near the head table but on the side across from the DJ so you’re not blasted with sound while you’re trying to cut your cake :). 
The candy bar might work on the wall near the bar so people who are lining up for drinks or the candy can either hit both or decide which one they want first. 
I would put the gift table next to the door on the side with the head table (so you can have people keep an eye on gifts ;), and the guest book table on the other side of the door. I’m sorry you’re so upset about this! I hope everything works out!

Agree completely with @jo.lee:. Put the cake in the far corner so the DJ isn’t in the background of the pics! And that expanse in front of the bar would be perfect for a lengthy cookie buffet table. Makes sense to put the guest book by the door so people can hit it when they walk in. If you’re doing escort cards, can it go at the end of that table?

I love the pics with the dimmed lighting, and it’ll pick up on your candles so well! It’s going to be OK and turn out great!

Internet hug recieved! 🙂 I think the centerpieces will look great, especially with the lighting like Amaryllis said!

Another idea – if you’re cutting the cake before dinner, I’ve seen the cake many times right in the middle of the dance floor when everyone arrives and then it is removed after it is cut (so it wouldn’t be blocking you guys for dinner). Not sure if that would work for you, but it’s an idea.

Also, don’t worry about people in the back being upset. I’ve been to weddings where the guests were in separate rooms from the bridal party, and it worked. At least here, everyone is in the same room!

I would keep the cake table near the head table on the other side from the DJ just like Jo.lee said
