Are you sticking with the same shape for all of your reception tables? Or using different table shapes and sizes to accommodate your guests?

    I have the same idea as Laura except we're still not sure what our sweetheart table will be.

    All guest tables will be round, other tables for food/cake/gifts will be rectangular.

    I'm digging the mixed up look, but practically we will have all the same tables.

    Matching- we will be barrowing from an aunt who does a lot of entertaining and has multiple of the same tables so we got lucky she has a ton set aside.

    We are mixing it up! We will be using rounds that will have white linens and then rustic farm tables (rectangle) that will he exposed and have dusty blue table runners. We are even pushing two of the farm tables together for one long table!

    I think matching only so no one feels left out if a lot of people are sitting at the nice big table and then some at smaller tables seems like you chose your favorites. But both ideas are cute
