Hey Bees! I can’t decide between 60″ round or 6′ rectangular tables. If it matters, I am having an intimate wedding with around 40 people, and if I used the rectangular tables I would probably line them into 2 rows of 3. It is not a huge space either so I kind of feel like the round would be easier to arrange. But what do you think?
(Both types of tables are included at no extra charge in my venue fee.)

Round tables usually take up more space, so I would probably go with those if you have the room. The space may feel empty with the rectangular tables. But I love rectangular tables too (we are having them at our reception). Do you have a pic of the venue?

Here is a picture (I believe it was set up for a birthday party in this image.)
And another view, with another birthday party (photo taken from center of room)
Some more views:
As you can see it’s not a huge space. I want it to feel cozy but not cramped. And a ltitle space for dancing would be nice.

The round tables look great

I would do the round. It looks like there are 8 seats per table, so you will only need 5 tables to seat 40 guests. There are 6 tables in the pics, so you can remove one and have room for a dance area. I would probably lose the table closest to the bay windows so that you can take advantage of that space for dancing, too. Looks great!

round tables fit more people in tight spaces, i believe.

Looks like I’m the only one for rectangular, but I love the way they look, the tablescapes you can set, and how conversation flows at them. IMO, you can only really talk to the 2 people next to you at round tables, but you have the 2 next to you and 2 across from you at rectangular tables- better for small, intimate groups where everyone knows each other. I don’t know what kind of dinner you’re doing, but family style works much better with rectangular, too.
I would set up tables parallel to to length of the room, your cake in that little window area that juts out, and a small dancing area at the front of the room (where the pictures are taken from).

Definately round tables, plus they are a better use of space!

Round makes for a cosier set up I think. The rectangular leave the guests too far apart x

I’m a fan of rectangular tables. I think they fit more people in a smaller space, too. I would set them up starting from either side and leave a space in the middle (by the bay window) for dancing.
