    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?

    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!

    I think the round tables look nicer.

    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.
