    I can honestly say I don’t understand your concern. It might just be the wording, but I’m confused.

    Anyway, can you have placecards at each table setting? If there’s multiple tables, have the usual area listing who is at what table and then at each setting is a name. I have no idea if this solves your problem. Undecided

    I see what you mean, but I don’t think it would be that different from a round table, where you could also have one chair open at one side and the other at the other…

    I’m trying to decide with my rectangular tables whether to have two along each side and one at each end, or three along each side… or what…

    So you’re talking about 8-10-12 top rectangular tables, not banquet tables (which would be more like 20 people to a side or somethign), and you’re concerned as to who sits on the end?

    I could imagine that it would be awkward to be the lone single gal sitting at the end if at a table with a bunch of couples, but you can solve that either by assigning seats (which is fine to do, by the way), or by taking care that you don’t put your lone singledoms with strangers or bunches of couples.

    PS–you can also get rectangular tables large enough that you can fit two people on each end instead of just one.

    We had rectangular tables of 8 and 10 – we assigned tables, but not specific seats.  Couples/families could decide if they all wanted to sit on one side, or across from each other.  It seemed to work out well!  Good luck!
