Those are beautiful! We are doing a long table setup at a beach house for our small ceremony also. Here are my inspiration pics 🙂

I am doing the same as well, my theme and feel of the wedding is rustic/vintage. I have a relatively small wedding so we have 4 long farmhouse style wood tables that accomodate about 10 people each. We will have both burlap and lace runners on the table along with mismatched antique chairs. We will have alot of small jars with small and simple arrangments as our center pieces…we wanted to make sure people can talk across from the table to each other. 🙂

This is my inspiration

We had a big reception of 76 people but also did long tables, at a Greek restaurant (we got married in Greece 2 weeks beforehand)

 

a.  for the dads we bought Chivas Regal 21 yo scotch, for giving us some money. They also conveniently matched our white, gold and ivory colours

b. Small round vases with roses and baby’s breath. Vases were $2 each and the flowers cost us $150 TOTAL for the whole restaurant.

c. I made our menu’s. Only 1 per table was required as it was a seated buffet

d. Frosted tealights were only .50c each!

e. Food and alcohol was available upon arrival. Plates were replenished throughout the night guests were served delicious Greek food, although we all drank far more than we ate.

f. we had disposable cameras too, for a bit of fun. Although I don’t recommend them as the film costs a bundle to get developed

e. Everyone else got Fererro Rocher favours and there were some place cards too

@weddingbound:  We will have anywhere from 20-35 depending on how many can make it.

Our venue is an old western town with a very rustic reception hall. The tables are small rectangles but I think they still apply. This was my inspiration because we have lots of family with old barns on their property so we can get the wood for free!

Ours was also a destination wedding, but in Bali!

I had 110 guests, and had two long tables with 55 guests on each table. Then we had a sweetheart table for my husband and me.

For decor, we had lots of low floral arrangements in mismatched vases and then brass lanterns were hung over the top at varying heights.

I think low arrangements are the way to go with long tables, so your guests can see each other from the other side of the table.

Because our tables were so long, we used a charcoal runner down each table to break up the colour. We had them silkscreened to match the rest of our stationery.

Here are some photos.

The cost of table arrangements for long table is more expensive than for round tables, I think, purely because you need so many so it doesn’t look sparse and bare.

I think a great option is to use mirrored pedestals or tiles and tons of tealight candles at varying heights. It instantly adds dimension and fills in any gaps you might have between the flowers.
