If the table would easily seat 16 with the chairs at either end, it will easily seat 14 without the chairs.

I would separate the benches, leaving a gap equal to one place setting between the benches.

This will leave room for you to easily sit down in your dress. It will also make it easier for the  guests on the other side of the table. I would seat the bride and groom together in the center on one side of the table.

I like the idea of a runner and the centerpieces. You will still see lots of the beautiful wood.

Don’t ccover that beautiful table!!! I wouldn’t even do a burlap runner (but then I don’t really like burlap). It’s amazing all on its own.

As far as seating goes is it possible to use chairs instead of the benches? I, personally don’t like sitting at benches because you can’t adjust the distance from the table. If that’s not a possibility then I like the PPs suggestion of separating the benches for easy access. And I would put you two in the middle of the table, either next to each other or across the table from each other.

I think it would look nice with a delicate white runner of some sorts – perhaps something like this:

As for the seating arrangements – I for once would want to sit next to my Fiance during our wedding dinner. Could you place the two chairs at the middle of one of the long sides, with benches around them? That way you can sit together, but with easy access. Another alternative is to just have everyone sit on chairs. That will be more comfortable for everyone.
