What Shape Are Your Tables?

Posted by Kim on Aug 28, 2012

It sounds like such a minor issue – the shape of the tables at your reception – but your decision has a major impact on the style and feel of your reception. Round tables are the most common, and they’re ideal to promote conversation among smaller groups of guests. Long tables give a reception a family-dinner feel – if you’re having trouble grouping guests together into smaller tables, a few long tables can eliminate that issue. We’re also seeing more square tables at wedding receptions for a more modern look, and some couples are choosing to have cocktail tables to promote mixing, mingling, and dancing. As for you and your new spouse, you can either sit with a group of family members, your wedding party, or a deux at a sweetheart table – it all depends if you want some “just the two of you” time at the reception or would prefer to sit with a group.

So tell us:

What's your reception table style?
