Believe it or not, tables can make your wedding a hundred times better! They may seem like something that nobody is really paying attention to on your big day, but if you do more than just the traditional table layout, your guests won’t be able to stop talking about them! Consider doing something unique with your tables, because you won’t be disappointed!

Most people do either a bunch of round tables with 8-12 people at each one, or rectangular tables with 10-12 people at them. What you may not think about is that you can mix and match different table shapes and strategically arrange them to fit more guests, or just to make pictures look better. You can play with different variations of your arrangement, and come up with something that you feel looks the best.

One unique idea is to have your head table made with all rectangular tables, and have the rest of the tables be round. This defines the space, and adds texture to your wedding reception in the form of tables. Instead of sitting by yourselves at a sweetheart table, you can be surrounded by your wedding party and family, while facing all of your guests that are sitting at the round tables.

Another idea is to completely mix all of the guest tables and have them alternate between round and rectangular. You can make the centerpieces and table cloths the same, but have different size rectangular tables and round tables with variations of different amounts of people at each table. It makes everything seem a little less structured, and gives your wedding an effortless feel.

Another idea is to line the room with rectangular tables and fill in the middle with round tables. This not only looks good, but it allows more space and you can fit more guests in your venue this way. If you are using this arrangement in order to fit more guests, seat them on both sides of the table, as well as the ends; this adds double the amount of seating as opposed to just seating them on one side. If you're not doing it for more seating, seat them on one side of the table, facing in toward the center of the room. These tables create a more intimate feel because everyone is a little bit closer to each other and those who don’t know each other are more likely to talk.
