Rectangle tables

Rectangle tables 1
Has anyone done a mix between round and rectangular tables? At first I liked the idea as we’d have more space, but unsure if people will feel weird not being able to talk to everyone. Our guests are pretty sociable and do see a lot of people dancing so I’m torn. What did your guests like it or did they feel it made it hard to socialize? Who did you seat at the rectangular tables? Or should we switch to all round tables?

    I recently went to a wedding with a mix and it was great. Even at round tables you mainly talk to be the people seated beside you. I love the look and don’t think rectangle tables take away from the guest experience.

    Thank you so much! Oh I didn’t think about them being able to talk to those at the surrounding tables. I’ll def keep that in mind when making the seating chart.

    I really like the mix of tables!! I think it makes for a really cool and visually interesting layout!

    I've also always been fine socializing and chatting at long tables! Like you said, your guests will be getting up and mingling & dancing anyway - so it's not like they're tied to their table all night!

    We did a mix of rounds and big squares. We had 8 seated at rounds and 10 seated at squares. No complaints that I heard of. Wish I had photos to show but we're still waiting to get them.

    Thanks so much! Makes me feel a lot better about having a mix. I think at the tables we can fit maybe 10-12 at round and 8 or 14 at rectangle.
