(Closed) Long wedding tables

posted 6 years ago in Reception
  • poll: Would you use long tables at your wedding reception ?

    Yes - I think it is very intimate and includes everyone

    Yes - but I would mix them with round tables and still have the bridal party on a separate table

    No - I prefer the traditional round tables

    No- I don't like how it looks

    We did 3 long tables for a group of 60 because it fit better in our venue that way. We had a separate sweetheart table for just the 2 of us. For the seating chart and centerpieces, we broke each long table in thirds.

    We’re having banquet tables too for about 100 people, we’re thinking of about 3/4 large centerpieces and candles throughout all the ‘gaps’ Smile.

    We are doing this for our wedding, and we expect about 40 guests. We are going to have the tables in a U shape. For centerpieces I’m going to have smallish jars of flowers every few feet mixed with lots of candles.

    We are planning long tables for our wedding. We’ll have no more than 40 guests.

    I disagree with comments that they are more difficult for conversation than round tables. I have sat at many formal dinners, and long tables give you more people to converse with. At a round table, if there is music and plenty of other people in the room, you can really only converse with the people on either side of you, which gives you two people to talk to. At a long table, you can talk to the people on either side of you, and three people across from you.

    @TanyaLeigh050414:  I vote long tables! I think they look gorgeous and create a really lovely vibe. I unfortunately can’t have them at our reception as the space is a sort of funny shape and long tables won’t fit but I think if you can have them, go for it!

    The more simple the better since bread baskets and glasses will occupy the center. Votives in clusters of three and single bud flowers in vases can look really elegant.
