Here is an idea of a reception set up I had. What are your thoughts ?
There is no bridal party , so me and my fiance would be seated on the long table with our friends and my brothers. While each of our familys will have a round table.
The reason for this is that my mother doesnt want to sit on a long table and prefers the round ones but I want to sit at a long table……
Do you think this ruins the look of the reception ?

I like it! I may be wrong but i always though that it was common for the head table to be long and the rest of the guest tables to be round. I’ve seen it done many times before so I wouldn’t worry so much about lack of continuity between the shapes of the tables.

It looks like a traditional head table setup to me, even if you are not using it that way.

Looks fine to me! As long as everyone is happy with the setup, I’d go for it.

@julies1949: Because it looks like the traditional set up do you think that the guests on the long table will feel like the bridal party ?

@TanyaLeigh050414: NO. I’m pretty sure they will still feel like themselves.
