What logistics concern you? Sounds like a great idea. I wanted one for the look of it but Darling Husband didn’t like the look.

We are hoping to have a long table for our wedding. We are expecting 30 people max. Probably less. I think it’s a nice way to have an intimate dinner. Truthfully, I really dislike when the bride and groom sit at their own table and then everyone is spread out at different tables. I think it’s rude, and people just use the saying “it’s tradition’ to feel better about it 🙂 I want to sit, eat and drink with my guests.

I went to a wedding with two long tables, each sitting about 50 people. I honestly prefer round tables with 8-10 people each, because guests have more people to talk to. With long tables one ends up talking to the person in front and the two persons at his/her side. Just my opinion though.

I wanted one table for ours since we have only 25 people. I think it’s more intimate that way. But the room isn’t big enough and we have to do 2 tables of 10 and 1 table of 5 🙁

I think thats an awesome idea! I have seen so many pictures of small wedding done in this style and they look see pretty. Good luck!

I think this sounds like a great idea! At my venue, a lot of the pictures that I’ve seen use long tables put together to look like one…and those were for large weddings! I think it will look amazing!

We were originally going to have one long table for our wedding (max 32 guests) it was going to be in the wine cellar amoungst $600 bottles of wines and some bottles which were in excess of that. We had to decide against it due to our almost 2 year old daughter and us having visions of her smashing a bottle or two. 

It would’ve been beautiful, but unfortunately it’s not a happening thing.

Here are some that I have admired.  I think it was in a private home.

I LOVE the way long tables look. Test it out at your venue to see if the tables are even on the ground.
