LONG DINNER TABLES
One of the easiest ways to make your wedding reception feel welcoming and warm is with a well-crafted floorplan. How the room is laid out, as well as how close the tables are to each other, thoughtfully-planned seating arrangements, and the floral artistry on the center of the tables all work together to have a powerful impact on the party energy.
We have found good vibes flow really well when the room layout includes long banquet-style dinner tables. Whether every table in the floorplan is a long table or just a few are dotted in for impact, long feast-style tables not only look amazing but they also make even the largest wedding feel super intimate. On average, long rectangular tables are 36 or 48 inches wide, as opposed to a round or square table at 60, 66 or 72 inches in width. Which means, without a doubt, long tables are more conducive to conversation and connectivity. That lively, easy energy is contagious and will spread from table to table across the room. Exactly what you want for your wedding celebration!
Long Table Designs to Inspire
As you might imagine, there are countless ways to use long dinner tables in your wedding reception. Whether you like the idea of using just one long table for you and bridal party, blending several rectangular tables with round or square tables, or seating your entire guest list of 100 at a dramatic long oval table, incorporating long tables into your floorplan is something to seriously consider.
Maybe we can inspire you to use them! In this post we’re sharing a few examples of how we’ve brought long tables into our event designs… Enjoy!
