    We are having circle 🙂

    That (I think) is the more common look but are you asking what we are doing? Or what you should do? How is your venue set up? Where is your venue?

    we are using 6 ft round, 4 ft x 4 ft square, and 6 ft x 3 ft rectangle tables.  they are all borrowed (so they are free) and i think it gives some geometric interest especially since my reception hall is just a big blank square.

    we are using long and small round, because it is the only way to fit people in!

    We are using rectangular tables and a couple of round ones. They come with the venue. I am also not sure if you are asking what we are using or what you shuold use.

    I like the idea of the mix and match, but we’re going the standard hall route, so we only get circle.

    If you are getting the tables free, you should consider the mix-and-match chairs too. I saw a few blog posts on this the other day, and I think Mrs. Sprinkle just had those in her recaps too!

    I’ve seen both, and it looks very nice.  Seems like it’s kind of a trend now too.  Especially for head/main tables.

    I think it totally depends on your space.

    Generally speaking though I LOVE rectangular tables. But they are also extra $$$.

    I’m not sure what we will be doing yet, it all depends on how many people RSVP!

    In a perfect world I would have 2 long rectangular tables spanning the length of the space on either side, creating a natural aisle. 🙂

    What I’m realistically aiming for is 2 rows of round tables on either side. And probably a long rectangular table in the middle as the head table.

    I think it depends on your space, what’s included, and what look you’re going for.

    I love love LOVE square tables. We’re getting round ones for free with the venue. I don’t think the square would fit as many as we need to anyway and they can be more expensive. BUT, they look amazing!

    We’re aiming to do mainly circle.   It’s easier to talk to all 6 or 8 people at the table that way.

    I’m new on here so I’ve been reading archives, and i think (?) Ms Cheetah has an inspiration pic back from Nov (possibly?!) with a mixture of tables that is absolutely beautiful!!

    We’ll end up doing both, our venue provides tables and chairs but there’s not quite enough of either table to fit all our guests.  Haven’t planned it out yet exactly how we’ll do it, but I imagine at least head table will be rectangles. I’ll have to hunt down that picture Miss Godiva mentions.

    Our head table is a square (not rectangular) and the rest of the tables are rounds.
